Nebraska grape growers focus on quality over quantity concerning wine

KEARNEY, Neb. - The Nebraska Winery and Grape Growers Farm and Trade show took place in Kearney, and the Rural Radio Network's Shalee Peters caught up with project manager Katie Cook to talk about grape growing, and quality control of wine products.
Cook said she hopes the attendees to the forum would take away a number of positive tools, most notably the importance of quality in wine. Cook added that it is imperative for Nebraska wineries and other surrounding states to monitor quality closely, because a bad taste of wine will be associated with the entire mid west region, not just the individual winery. Whereas, when people taste bad California wine, they simply associate that wine with the winery, not the entire state.
"It only takes one bad egg to spoil it for the whole region." Cook said.
