Climate conditions ripe for more grape-growing regions in Colorado, new CSU study finds
A study led by CSU climatologist Peter Goble, who is based in the Colorado Climate Center and ATS, showed that climate conditions that enable grapes to thrive in Palisade also exist in other parts of Western Colorado and near Cañon City. This could lead to expansion of the state’s wine industry according to the article published in Journal of Applied and Service Climatology. More details can be found in a CSU Source article written by Emily Wilmsen, which can be found here.
