Update July 18, 2019: Since original publication on July 15, average price figures have been updated for North Willamette Valley Chardonnay, Pinot gris and Pinot noir and South Willamette Valley Pinot gris and Pinot noir.
The preliminary pricing report for grapes from the 2018 Oregon Vineyard and Winery Survey is now available. The report includes weighted average prices and median prices as well as minimum and maximum prices per ton by variety. Where enough data points allow, regional pricing provides a comprehensive picture of grape prices throughout the state.
We have received feedback over time from both growers and producers about the need to ensure reported pricing reflects transactions taking place on the open market. To help improve confidence in the reported data, the 2018 survey clarified the request for grape sales to third parties.
Where no data is reported, at either the statewide or regional level, it is because not enough data points were received to be able to report. Thank you to those Oregon vineyards that took the time to share their data to help create this report.
If you have any questions about this report, please direct them Jess Willey at the Oregon Wine Board or Bob Parker, director of the University of Oregon’s Institute for Policy Research and Engagement, who conducted this study’s data collection, analysis and reporting.
