Grape ‘Frontenac’ Blue, Black

Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit! Hybrid Wine Variety

‘Frontenac’ is an extremely cold hardy, red wine grape. It has been used to produce dry red wine, rose’, and port. The deep colored wines have cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, and plum notes that pair well with hearty foods such as duck, pheasant, lamb, beef, pasta dishes made with tomato and eggplant; also with flavor ingredients such as pepper, mushrooms, black olives, and herbs (mint, thyme, rosemary). Frontenac produces grapes with high sugar and high acidity, so acid reducing techniques are often used by the winemaker.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant 1-2" deep, make sure 4-5" of the top show above the soil surface and water thoroughly. Fertilize when planting. Best grown in deep, loamy, medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, including average garden soils, but must have good drainage. Best sited in a location sheltered from winter winds (preferably a southern facing slope) and well removed from frost pockets. Self-pollinating. Grapes need a support system, training, regular spraying and regular pruning to maximize fruit production.

Pests or Diseases: Grape plants require a fair amount of maintenance and pruning. If given the proper amount of care, these wonderful fruits will provide you and your family with years of pleasure.
