Two industry surveys, conducted by the Northern Grapes Project in 2012 and 2016, tracked changes in acreage, wine production, and economic impact of cold-tolerant grapes across the Midwest and Northeast. Increases in acreage, production, and sales were recorded. Overall economic impact from Cold climate cultivars increased from $401 million in 2011 to $539 million in 2015. The number of industry-associated jobs increased from 12,600 to 18,700 in 2015. Viticultural and winemaking practices changed over the five-year project, reflecting impacts of Northern Grapes Project research and outreach.
