There are several accounts as to the origin of the Ives grape, but there is no question about its dense color and rich grapey flavor. It was introduced by Henry Ives III of Cincinnati , Ohio in 1840 and planted along the banks of the Ohio River during the 1850s. The grand New York State "port" wines, popular after the repeal of Prohibition through the 1960s, were dependent on Ives. vineyards are increasingly rare. Ives has good disease resistants. Grapes are jet black and has a very foxy Concord type flavor, makes a good blending grape because of deep color and also makes a good sweet or semi sweet wine.
