New York State Wine Analytical Laboratory

Beakers

The NYS Wine Analytical Laboratory provides affordable:

  • juice analysis
  • wine analysis
  • distillates analysis

We offer over 25 different chemical, microbiological, and sensory analyses at our facility in the Department of Food Science at Cornell’s New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, N.Y., for quality assurance, trouble shooting and federal regulatory compliance.

Analyses are offered at a discount to all New York bonded wineries, home winemakers, and craft distilleries because a portion of testing costs (approximately 33%) are subsidized by the New York Wine and Grape Foundation (NYWGF). We are unable to offer this discount to wine distributors or out-of-state wineries because of the nature of NYWGF funding.
