While numbers like these may be boring to some, the 2018 California Crush Report was released today and the overall results are encouraging. There was a bountiful grape harvest that increased over 6.5% in volume from the previous year. Both white and red varieties showed an uptick in growth.
Unsurprising is that the average price per ton increased dramatically (nearly 7%) per ton, with an average price swing that was up $55 per ton over 2017. Want to really hear a number that will take your breath away? Napa wine grapes kept their spot as the highest priced grapes per ton, at $5,571.41!
