ImpactsThe Finger Lakes Grape Program continues to make impacts on the growers and agri-business professionals of the grape industry of NY. In addition, the team has ongoing, farther reaching impacts on the consumers of NY grown grapes and the economy of the state.

2016 Year in Review

The Finger Lakes Grape Program had another busy year in 2016. Between organizing another successful B.E.V. NY conference, hosting 10 Tailgate meetings around the region, conducting field trials and continuing our cooperative efforts with Finger Lakes Community College at our Teaching & Demonstration Vineyard, there was a lot going on. Fortunately, we had two great helpers this year in Donald Caldwell and Corrigan Herbert.

You can learn more about some of the work that we did last year in support of the grape growers in the Finger Lakes in this year's 'Year in Review'. Enjoy!

Tailgate Meetings Around the Finger Lakes

The weather is warming up, and that means the start of another growing season in Finger Lakes vineyards. It also means the start of the Finger Lakes Grape Program's annual series of Tailgate Meetings, which are held every other week during the growing season. These meetings are a great opportunity to talk with FLGP staff and other growers about what's going on in the vineyards, and exchange ideas about how to make improvements on the farm.

Want to learn more about our Tailgate Meetings? Check out the video below, or better yet, come to a meeting this year. No cost, no registration necessary. Dates and locations are listed on our Calendar of Events.
