Economic Impact Study

United States
Economic Impact Study
2022

WineAmerica, the National Association of American Wineries in Washington, commissioned a 2022 National Economic Impact Study of the Wine Industry by John Dunham & Associates. The study shows that the American wine industry will generate over $276 billion for the US economy in 2022. All 50 states produce and consume wine. In addition to the national data, this study includes detailed data for each state.

The Wine Industry Boosts the American Economy by $276 Billion in 2022

Wine is an all-American beverage produced in all 50 states. The production, distribution, sales, and consumption of wine benefits many sectors of the United States economy and will generate close to $276.07 billion in total economic activity. This ultimate value-added product preserves agricultural land, provides American jobs, attracts tourists, generates taxes, and enhances the quality of life.

National Highlights

Total
Output

The American wine industry generates close to $276.07 billion in total economic activity, dramatically illustrating that wine is the ultimate value-added beverage. The broader economic impact flows throughout the nation, generating business for firms seemingly unrelated to the wine industry. Real people, with real jobs, working in industries as varied as farming, banking, accounting, manufacturing, packaging, transportation, printing, and advertising depend on the wine industry for their livelihoods.

National
Reach

The wine industry includes a total of 10,637 wine producers¹ in all 50 states, as well as 119,520 acres of vineyards.

Job
Creation

The wine industry directly employs as many as 1,007,459 people, and generates an additional 364,234 jobs in supplier and ancillary industries which supply goods and services to the industry, and whose sales depend on the wine industry’s economic activity. Ultimately, 1.84 million jobs are created and supported by the wine industry.

Wage
Generation

The wine industry provides good jobs, paying an average of $51,800 in annual wages and benefits. The total wages generated by direct, indirect, and induced economic activity driven by the wine industry are $95.49 billion.

Tourist
Activity

The wine industry is a major magnet for tourists and tourism-driven expenses. America’s “wine country” regions will generate 49.18 million tourist visits and $16.69 billion in annual tourism expenditures, benefiting local economies and tax bases.

Tax
Revenues

The wine industry generates sizeable tax revenues on the local, state, and national levels. In 2022, the industry will pay nearly $8.15 billion in state and local business taxes, and $14.67 billion in federal business taxes for a total exceeding $22.83 billion. In addition, the industry generates approximately $875.28 million federal consumption taxes and $7.27 billion in state consumption taxes which include excise and sales taxes.

1 – Throughout this study, the winery count refers to the number of winery facilities. A single winery may have multiple facilities throughout the state or country. Each of these facilities is included in the winery count.
