New York State Wine Analytical Laboratory

Beakers

Note: The lab will be closed November 20-22, 2018.  Have a happy Thanksgiving!

The NYS Wine Analytical Laboratory provides affordable analysis for:

  • Juice
  • Wine & Cider
  • Distillate & Kombucha
  • Hops (August 1- October 31)

We offer over 25 different chemical, microbiological, and sensory analyses at our facility in the Department of Food Science at Cornell AgriTech at the 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 cideries because a portion of testing costs 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.

Note: As of May 2018, the New York Wine and Grape Foundation subsidy is 50% for members and 25% for non-member New York wineries.
