Calif. Winegrape Harvest Called Largest to Date

The Preliminary California Grape Crush Report shows the 2012 Winegrape crop reached an all-time high of 4.014 M Tons, which was surprising given the limited amount of new planting in the state. This production was needed given the shorter crops from the previous two years and the growing consumer demand for case goods. This will provide supply to wineries and bring the overall market back into balance as we enter 2013.
