The wet spring, hot summer and warm, dry fall were not optimal conditions for most Indiana crops, but they were ideal for grape growers.
"The hot summer and extended fall gave Indiana growers plenty of time to let their grapes ripen, which made it a good harvest. And while talking to growers across the state, most of them seem happy with their crop," said Bruce Bordelon, Purdue Extension grape and wine specialist.
