After posting I looked into it, and found 2 local business around Albany NY that bring in grapes and juice from Cali, Pede Bros and Ryan's produce. Neither had prices on their website, looks like I'll be making some phone calls on Monday.

Dave, I doubt they'll be able to give you a price yet. The list I posted is from last year. Usually as soon as they get the information from their supplier they immediately post it or email it to there customers as it all has to be pre ordered. But yes, call them and get on their email list.

I agree w/ Dan.
Pricing is not set yet. Doubt it will be ready much before Sept.

Thanks for the info guys, it appears that it will be in the same range as Chilean products according to your list from last year. Just thinking about what i want to do next. I have 4 Carboys, all bulk aging right now, I have one with a skeeter pee in it which I will be bottling next weekend. I was thinking whether or not I should wait for the Cali juice or do a cheap wine kit, money is a bit tight lately.

Save your money and put it away for the California wine. The price is right.

Ditto.
Now if you are gonna get 2 buckets of the same juice I would get a lug of the same grapes. Add this for more tannin and body.
