Louise Swenson

Louise Swenson is another Minnesota hybrid grape, developed by pioneer grape hybridizer Elmer Swenson (and named after his wife Louise). Both tough and tender, this grape can withstand freezing winter temperatures and short summers, and still produce wines that are fresh and light-bodied with a pleasing minerality. Consistently hardy to -40F. Rarely requires shoot pruning. Wine can be outstanding with aromas of flowers, honey and tangerine.
