2018 Finger Lakes Grape Price Listing

September 6, 2018

On August 15 each year, companies that purchase a certain amount of grapes in New York State must provide the list of prices they are paying for those grapes to New York's Department of Ag & Markets. For 20 years, the Finger Lakes Grape Program has requested those price lists from any winery or processor willing to share their prices with the industry, and compiled those lists into a single listing. We are grateful for these processors' willingness to share their prices over the years, and for doing so again this year.

Overall, most prices are flat or slightly down from 2017, which probably isn't a surprise given the very large crop that many wineries were crushing last year. Be aware that some varieties show a significant change in their average price between 2017 and 2018 - for example, Delaware's average price this year is $438 compared to $392 last year. The reason is not that prices from buyers for that variety have gone up (at least those we got lists from), but rather that we're missing a price that was reported last year which brought the average price down to $392. If you want to compare this year's list to last year's, you can find the 2017 listing at

If we receive any further price lists, we will add them to the listing.

B.E.V. NY Exhibitor Registration

B.E.V. NY is New York's annual conference for the grape and wine industry, combining the resources of Cornell's Extension Enology Lab, the Finger Lakes Grape Program, and the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. More than 400 people attend B.E.V. NY each year to hear the latest information about marketing, winemaking and grape growing from academic and industry experts. If you want to reach the growers, winemakers and business leaders in the dynamic and expanding grape and wine industry of the Finger Lakes and New York, there is no better place to be than at B.E.V. NY!

Exhibitors can register for the Trade Show during one, two, or all three days of the conference. This gives you the opportunity to target the kind of attendees that you would like to reach during the event. Want to talk to tasting room or marketing staff about your company's new service? Wednesday's business-focused program is where you'll want to be. Are you primarily interested in talking to winemakers? Then be sure to be there during Thursday's enology program. Friday is all about vineyards so if you want to talk to grape growers, that's the day for you. Or get even wider exposure and register for two or three days!

Registration can be found here.
