Starting a Winery in NNY: Considerations and Costs

Are you interested in starting a winery in Northern New York? CCE Harvest New York has put together a report and interactive Excel spreadsheets on Starting a Winery in Northern New York: Winery Establishment Considerations and Costs.

The report provides a general overview of starting a winery in Northern New York. You will find information on current wine sales, markets, winery establishment costs, licensing resources, growing grapes vs purchasing grapes or juice, winery building, and potential financial help resources.

Additionally, we have created Excel spreadsheets to help you determine some start-up costs and considerations. Within the Cost Calculating Spreadsheet, you will find worksheets for Yield per Vine, Yield per Acre, and Production Establishment Cost. Instructions are provided on the top of each worksheet.
