Any perfect flowered grape that blooms at the same time will work.  
LaCrosse & Swenson Red  are suggested because they are similar to St. 
Pepin in hardiness, ripening time and can be blended with St. Pepin in 
winemaking.

2)  Curious what people have used for pollinators for St. Pepin.  Any 
web site that mentions specific pollinators will mention Lacrosse or 
Swenson Red, in that order of frequency.   Has anyone else used 
different grape varieties for pollination?
