Marquette is an inter-species hybrid red wine grape variety. It was developed at the University of Minnesota, and is a cross between two other hybrids, MN 1094 and Ravat 262.[1][2] Marquette was introduced in 2006.

In August 2019, VQA Ontario announced that the province of Ontario's VQA regulations have added Marquette to the list of permitted grape varieties for Ontario wines branded as VQA.[3]


Marquette is also known under its breeding code Minnesota 1211 (MN 1211).[2]
