2017 Virginia Commercial Grape Report Season Summary

Virginia’s 2017 growing season was characterized by unusually high temperatures. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Virginia’s statewide temperate average was 57.3 degrees – making 2017 the state’s fourth-warmest year since 1895.

Overall, Virginia’s precipitation was a bit lower than average causing occasional flare-ups of dry conditions across the state which also contributed to a bumper crop statewide.

Yield per acre for this year's respondents was 23% higher than for 2016 respondents. Part of this increase is due to low yields last year, however 2017 reported yields were also 14% higher than 2015 respondents, a near normal year.

The unusually high temperatures and lower than average precipitation throughout the year gave bountiful harvests to many growers across the state.
