Sustainable Viticulture Systems
New York State is the fourth largest producer of wine in the United States. In the Finger Lakes, there are over 54,000 tons of grapes produced every year. With production numbers on the rise, it is important to establish alternative food systems for grape seeds and skins. At Sustainable Viticulture Systems their alternative is grape skin and grape seed flour, blended to make wine flour. A soft, dense powder that can be used in gluten free baking or as an additive for high protein and high fiber diets (among many other things!)
Their operation is located in the heart of the Finger Lakes overlooking Seneca Lake in Hector, NY. The small processing center is developed under joint standards of sustainable environment, economy and society to ensure that the highest quality food products are brought to market.
