Cayuga White is one of the most productive and disease resistant varieties grown in New York and was Cornell University's first variety released specifically for winemaking. This versatile grape can be made into a semi-dry to sweet wine and is often blended with other white hybrids such as Seyval and Vidal. Winemakers often prefer Cayuga White to be harvested at relatively low (17°-18° brix) as riper fruit can begin to develop undesirable native characteristics.
Cayuga White grapes are a highly prized variety of grape known for its sweet, crisp flavor and long-lasting shelf life. This variety of grape is a hybrid of the popular Vitis vinifera and Vitis labrusca. It is a white-fruited variety with a mild, sweet taste that has a hint of pineapple and honey. The berries are small but have a great deal of flavor and a nice crunch.
Cayuga White grapes have become increasingly popular over the last few years, with both professional and amateur vintners, as well as home growers, enjoying the sweet, juicy flavor of the grapes. The grapes are also very hardy and can withstand cold temperatures and drought, making them an ideal choice for growers in colder climates.
