Finger Lakes Grape Program

The Finger Lakes Grape Program (FLGP) is a regional extension program of Cornell Cooperative Extension serving the grape and wine industry of the Finger Lakes.

The FLGP provides unbiased, research-based information to the region's grape growers in areas including vineyard and pest management practices, new vineyard establishment, farm business management, marketing and business development and more as a means of supporting the industry's growth and long-term sustainability. This information is distributed to growers by a variety of means, including printed and electronic communications, field meetings and workshops, and an annual winter conference.  

Grape growers are invited to enroll in the Finger Lakes Grape Program so that they may receive important and timely information through a wide variety of means to help produce the best crop possible, as efficiently as possible.

The Finger Lakes Grape Program is supported, in part, by five county Cornell Cooperative Extensions including: Ontario, Seneca, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates Counties.
