California’s 2017 crush was over 4.2 million tons, up just slightly from crush in 2016. Raisin-type grapes totaled 94,300 tons, up 5 percent year over year but down 71 percent from 2013. About 10 percent of crush was used for juice concentrate, up slightly from 2016’s volume but still a few points lower than volumes used five to ten years ago. Crush for red wine accounted for 53 percent of the total, but year over year it was down about 1 percent while crush for white wine increased about 1 percent.
