In grape acreage, the number two wine state in the U.S. is New York.

Answer: False.

That would be Washington State with about 60,000 acres of vineyards. Washington is a distant second to California which has the most vineyard acreage in the U.S.—620,000 acres. For its part, New York has about 35,000 acres of grapes but about 9,000 of those are Concord grapes destined to be juice or jelly, not wine.
