Although the regional climate is unfavorable, microclimatic effects of the lakes and their valleys make viticulture possible. Production based on native American grape varieties that yield sweet wines is declining. Introduction of vines to produce dry wines has led to changes in operations and vineyard location that may create a new, positive image for the regional wines.
