Winemaking in the US used to be associated only with California. Today, if you were to guess that Napa Valley is America’s biggest wine region, you would be incorrect. In fact, many people would be surprised to know that the largest wine region in the US is the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Encompassing approximately 30,000 square miles, the Upper Mississippi River Valley stretches from parts of Illinois to Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. Much of the Midwest has many steep slopes, as opposed to being overly flat, which is essential for growing premium grapes. It’s evident that wines produced in this region are already turning heads and palates as they continue to excel in national competitions. It’s also noteworthy that of these premium wine makers, many are using the Stainless Steel Wine Drums from Skolnik for processing. These Skolnik Stainless Steel Wine Drums offer winemakers the benefit of durability, cleanliness, economy and reusability. From coast to coast, our Wine Drums are earning their way into successful wineries.
