It was with much sorrow that I heard of Tom Martell’s passing while I was working working at the Iowa State Fair. Tom was the past president of the Minnesota Grape Growers Association (2005 -2011) and one of the foremost leaders of the Cold Climate Winegrape movement here is the U.S.Tom died at the age of 64 peacefully at home surrounded by family on August 12 following a 19-month battle with cancer.
