Part of our Monday night lecture series: Historical Culinary Incidents: An Exploration of Food and Culture in the Pioneer Valley. Grape growing and winemaking are activities not commonly associated with the Pioneer Valley.  However, every state in the U.S. has at least one winery and wineries comprise the fastest growing segment of agriculture in Massachusetts. Presenter Gary Kamen of Mount Warner Vineyards in Hadley, will focus on the unique wines available in this region. Kamen will discuss the kinds of grapes well suited for the local climate, issues associated with growing grapes, and winemaking styles that match the fruit available in this area.
