You don't have to travel far to find a winery or even a vineyard.

A University of Minnesota Extension study released last summer shows the wine industry is nearly a $60 million a year business in Minnesota, and the growers have cold climate grapes to thank.

The Minnesota Grape Growers Association is hosting its annual Cold Climate Conference this weekend in St. Paul.

Terri Savaryn from the Minnesota Grape Growers Association stopped by our KSTP-TV studio to discuss the Minnesota wine industry.
