Our Research

In 2017, WineAmerica commissioned a leading economics firm, John Dunham & Associates of New York City, to conduct a national economic impact study of the American wine industry, including a state-by-state breakdown.

The study reveals that the US wine industry has an impact worth $219.9 billion per year.
