New York Introduction: Released for commercial planting in 1972.
Atwater Introduction: 1982
Acreage: Atwater Estate Vineyard: 1.0 acres / Total New York: 266 acres
Viticultural Characteristics: Vigorous, moderately hardy vine with good disease resistance, Cayuga produces high yields of large, well-filled clusters.
