Incredibly hard to believe

According to the Kansas State University agricultural extension service:

Kansas and Missouri produced approximately 85 percent of the country’s wine before prohibition began in the 1920s.

We now devotea mere 150 acres to cultivating grapes for wine.

Reportedly, state laws restirct wine production in a number of ways. Maybe we should look at make some changes to recapture some of our pre-1920 glory before expanding gambling or creating huge subsidies for companies.
