Why do grapes grow in this region?

A loamy soil and temperate climate located between the Lake Erie shoreline and a protective ridge left by the glaciers 20,000 years ago provide a friendly microclimate for growing grapes and other fruit. Lake Erie moderates the climate in this narrow region, cooling the air in spring to hold back blossoms until the danger of frost has past while warming the air in Autumn for a longer growing season.
