Turrentine in the News: Grape Crush Report

Winegrape Crush Report published February 10th, 2021.

The 2020 Preliminary Winegrape Crush Report, released by the National Agricultural Statistics Service,
detailed a California statewide wine grape crop of 3.404 million tons. This is the lightest California wine
crop since 2011, down 13% or about 88 million gallons from 2019. The crop was light due, in part, to
lower yields per acre as a result of a warm growing season and grapes left on the vine over concerns of
exposure to smoke. The crop decreases mostly affected by smoke were Sonoma County Pinot Noir,
Monterey County Pinot Noir, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon.
The short crop helped to balance out some of the excesses in coastal bulk wine that had built up over
previous years from new bearing acres, slower sales growth, and larger than average yields per acre.
The spot market for grapes and bulk wine became more active during harvest last year and there is
continued market activity early in 2021.
