The T.V. Munson Memorial Vineyard was established in 1974 on Grayson College’s West Campus Extension through the generosity of the W.B. Munson Foundation in memory of T.V. Munson. Dr. Munson experimented with and developed over three hundred varieties of grapes in the Denison, Texas area. Currently, over 60 of the original varieties are grown in the T.V. Munson Memorial Vineyard, in addition to other hybrid and vinifera grape varieties.
The vineyard serves as a repository to preserve Dr. Munson’s varieties and as a resource for the viticulture and enology program. Each fall, cuttings are collected and shipped to grape growers and breeders across the U.S. To request cuttings please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to order for a spring delivery is November 15.
