A diagnosis of profitability of the Salvador grape (Vitis vinífera) production for industry and Red Globe for fresh market was performed. The objective was to generate information to support decisions to foster this activity in a sustainable and competitive manner in the study area. A semi-structured survey was applied to grapevine producers in seven municipalities of the state of Aguascalientes, fourth grape producer in México. Based on the characteristics of the producers, the vineyard management, production costs, destination of the production, varieties and irrigation types, were identified in four systems: 1) Salvador + gravity based irrigation; 2) Salvador + drip irrigation; 3) Red Globe + gravity based irrigation; and 4) Red Globe + drip irrigation. The cost-benefit relationship (CBR) was 1.7, 1.9, 2.9 and 3.2, respectively. The four systems are profitable, although higher in the production of table grapes (Red Globe) and with drip irrigation. The financial analysis indicates that viticulture in Aguascalientes is profitable, so it is advisable to implement strategies and actions for its growth in the entity.
