The planned support period for the East Coast Vineyards site assessment tool ended in April 2017 coinciding with the completion of a grant from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under Agreement No. 2010-51181-21599. As of July 2017, backend services supporting these site reports were decomissioned, meaning that this tool is no longer operational.

Services for Virginia are available in CGIT's new tool GeoVine at geovine.org.

If you would like to discuss the availability of the vineyard site assessment report, models, and forecast reports for your state or geographic area, please contact Peter Sforza sforza@vt.edu or 540.231.8935

About this application
This web application is used to display maps and utilize geoprocessing tools built for 'Improved grape and wine quality in a challenging environment: An eastern US model for sustainability and economic vitality' and is based upon research supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under Agreement No. 2010-51181-21599. This site is in beta form and its tools are still under development. This resource may not be available beginning in April 2017 due to lack of research and/or maintenance funding outside of Virginia. The new resources for Virginia are moving to www.geovine.org. If you would like to discuss the availability of the vineyard site assessment report, models and forecast reports for your state, please contact Peter Sforza sforza@vt.edu or 540.231.8935
