The 2011 Commercial Grape Report is now available. This report includes industry data on grape production and acreage by variety, pricing by variety, and production and acreage by county.
This year marks the second time the Virginia Wine Board Marketing Office has managed the annual Commercial Grape Report (CGR) data collection and reporting. Prior to 2010, the CGR was produced by NASS (National Agricultural Statistics Service). The survey questions were identical to those used by NASS; however, the capture of information was slightly different. The 2010 and 2011 surveys drew upon exact data provided by Virginia grape producers.

Due to extenuating circumstances, there are a few significant variances in the data compared to last year that have been evaluated and confirmed. A document is available for any wineries or vineyards that would like further explanations for any discrepancies in the data. This document is an internal industry document, so you will need to log in first to access it.
