Greetings all,

I‘m in New York City and have been making wine from grapes from California and Chile for several years. I want to try some locally grown grapes, around 1000 pounds. Can anyone recommend vineyards in New York, Finger Lakes, Long Island etc. that will sell whole fruit to home winemakers?

Thank you very much!

Thank you. They don’t sell whole grapes but I’ll keep them in mind.

When I purchased from them (MANY moons ago), they sold in lugs. Since then things have changed -- probably easier (and cheaper) for them to have you bring your own container for pulp. My b-in-l likes their juice, so the quality is still solid.

If you don't find a better option, call them and ask about whole grapes.

Check out the site below. It's a marketplace for NY vintners. While they might not want to sell in smaller quantities, at least you'll have an idea of who has fruit available. Most of the time they'll be ok with selling you a few lugs.

There’s also a wine/beer making place in New Paltz that distributes grapes. It used to be a fruit and vegetable cold packing warehouse / wholesale / store. The owner‘s name is Jerry and he’s very helpful.
