We are continually updating our industry-wide database of relevant vintage data we feel is both interesting and useful to the NC wine industry. This allows producers to track data over time, consider their own production in the context of their peers, and encourage discussions between industry members and educational / extension resources throughout the state.

See our new page, Viewing Data, for updated vintage summaries.

Information includes popular NC varieties, as well as average BRIX, pH, acids, VA, Residual Sugar, etc on juice and wine samples submitted from August 2011 to date.

As you will see from the data, the more samples and descriptive information (varietal, vintage, etc) that you send, the more details we can provide and well help you consider your own data in the context of other data collected throughout the state. Feel free to make suggestions on how this may be made most useful for your own needs.
