High Altitude Vineyards & Winegrapes Online Resource

The Elevation of Wine is the main online resource for high elevation viticulture and enology in North America and is intended to be a forum for collaboration and information for those making wine with grapes from the mountains.

See presentations and transcripts from the Elevation of Wine Symposium in 2007 and the The High Elevation/High Latitude Symposium: Wine Growing On the Edge held in January 2010 at the Unified Symposium.

We’ve compiled two extensive bibliographies on elevation and vineyards and winemaking as well as a search capability for the listed articles.
