This publication is based on New York Food and Life Sciences bulletin 80, July 1979, Grape Varieties for New York State. The authors are indebted to their predecessors, John Einset (deceased), John Watson (deceased), and Keith Kimball, who developed the table grape portion of the earlier bulletin and generated much of the information contained therein. Phillip McInnis, Jr., assisted with field evaluations and generated the early variety data bases upon which this publication is based. Raymond Mallaber and the Field Research Unit of Geneva, as well as the staff of the Vineyard Laboratory of Fredonia, supplied skilled and enthusiastic viticultural expertise. We thank Nelson Shaulis for his critical reading of this manuscript. We are grateful for the financial support from the New York State Grape Production Research Fund and the New York Wine & Grape Foundation. To all of the above, as well as to many others who contributed in significant ways, the authors express their gratitude and appreciation.
