The Grape, Wine and Fruit Promotion Fund is governed by the Grape and Wine Advisory Committee. The Committee consists of two individuals who are grape producers; one individual who is the producer of a fruit, other than grapes, used in vinification; two individuals who own wineries located in the state; and one representative of the ND Grape and Wine Association. The North Dakota Department of Agriculture administers the fund.

The mission of the Grape, Wine and Fruit Promotion fund is to provide research and promotion in support of the grape and wine industry in North Dakota.

Funding for the Grape, Wine and Fruit Promotion Fund is included in the Agriculture Commissioner's budget. It includes approximately $60,880 to support grape and wine research projects in North Dakota and approximately $15,220 to promote and market the grape and wine industry in North Dakota for the 2017-2019 biennium.
