In this Sept. 20, 2004, photo provided by the University of Minnesota, a bunch of cold-hearty Marquette grapes grow on a vine in Carver County, Minn. Minnesota's wine industry is no longer a novelty for a state known for its frosty climate and presently boasts over 100 vineyards and 34 wineries according to a recent survey and contributed $59 million to the state's economy in 2011 alone. The Marquette is one of four grape varieties developed by the university to resist temperatures that can dip into the negative-30s. (AP Photo/University of Minnesota, David L. Hansen,File)
