Servicing a Growing Industry

The North Dakota Grape Growers Association was established in 2006 to promote viticulture in the state. To reflect the needs of the growing membership and recognizing that the grape industry can only grow in cooperation with the wine industry, the name was changed in 2012 to the North Dakota Grape and Wine Association. Today, the NDGWA serves commercial and amateur fruit and grape growers and winemakers across North Dakota and nearby states.
