The New York grape, grape juice and wine industry generates more
than $4.8 billion in economic benefits annually for New York State.
1,631 family vineyards... over 400 wineries... 175,000,000 bottles
of wine... $408 million in state and local taxes -
And so, I was so grateful that Sam Filler, Executive Director of the NYWGF was able to take the time to come on and chat with me about the state of the industry, because I think that we can all agree…. it’s important!
Sam is a genuine, dynamic leader and to be honest, we probably could of sat and talked with each other for another hour. He’s passionate about our wine and grape businesses in NY and he’s got a huge job.
