Frontenac Blanc grapes are a unique variety of white wine grapes that were developed in the 1990s by the University of Minnesota. This variety offers a unique flavor and aroma, making it a favorite among winemakers. It is a hardy variety that is able to survive and thrive in colder climates.
Frontenac Blanc grapes are best grown in full sun, although they can tolerate some shade. They are very hardy and can survive temperatures as low as -20°F. These grapes need well-draining soil with a neutral pH level and plenty of organic matter. It is important to water the vines regularly and deeply, as Frontenac Blanc grapes are shallow-rooted.
When planting Frontenac Blanc grapevines, it is important to give them plenty of room to grow. Planting in rows spaced eight feet apart will give the vines enough room to spread out. It is also important to support the vines with posts or trellises to ensure that the fruit does not get too heavy.
In order to get the best results, pruning should be done in late winter or early spring. Cut off any dead or diseased canes and remove any suckers that are growing from the base of the vine. Also, be sure to thin out any overcrowded clusters of grapes so that the vines can focus their energy on producing larger, higher quality fruit.
