Kentucky was the third largest grape and wine producing state in the country before prohibition. With prohibition, grape a creage was used to produce tobacco instead. However, in 1976, Kentucky passed legislation allowing wineries to begin operations and since the 2004 tobacco buyout, the grape and wine industry has rebounded tremendously (source: University of Kentucky College of Agriculture Magazine). As of April 2010, Kentucky had 113 grape producers growing over 600 acres of grapes. There are more than 60 small farm wineries in the state (source: Kentucky Dept Agriculture). The rising importance of the grape and wine industry in Kentucky highlights the need for a survey focused on pests in this system.
