Montana WineriesGrowing grapes in colder climes means facing the harsh reality that only a limited variety will flourish.

Montana wineries have taken up the challenge by finding grape vines that will withstand both a short growing season that starts in May and ends in early October... and a cold winter that occasionally drops to -20 degrees Fahrenheit.

Surprisingly, it is the traditional grape varieties such as pinot noir, pinot gris, chardonnay and gewurztraminer that often fit the bill given careful and tender treatment.

Cherries, huckleberries, other native fruits and honey are also coming into their own as prime sources for winemaking in Montana's six commercial wineries
