North American Winery Total Passes 8,000
Wines & Vines releases complete 2013 Directory & Buyers Guide
San Rafael, Calif.—More than 8,000 wineries now produce wine in North America according to Wines & Vines, which released the latest data at the 2013 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium.
Surprisingly, fewer than half the wineries are in California, reflecting the explosion of wineries throughout the other states and Canadian provinces.
WinesVinesDATA, the magazine’s market research team, provides these numbers as a small sample of the information available in the 2013 Directory & Buyers Guide, now available in print and online formats.
Virtual wineries have a brand name and produce wine at host facilities.
The number of wineries in the U.S. has continued to grow each year, even during the recession, although the pace has slowed from 2010 through 2012.
A large majority of the wineries counted are small; almost 6,000 produce fewer than 5,000 cases per year. Just 49 make more than 500,000 cases, a number that has dropped slightly due to acquisitions. All other categories have grown.
More than 12 states (and two Canadian provinces) have more than 100 wineries each.
