P45 & MSU Extension
Grape Price Survey
Join us in a crucial initiative – our first annual survey on grape growing costs regarding Michigan winegrape pricing for the 2023 season. Conducted by Parallel 45 Vines and Wines (P45) in collaboration with Michigan State University Extension, this survey is designed to illuminate the dynamic relationship between production costs and farming practices, but at its root, to establish a Michigan-wide grape price index to be utilized regionally.
