Can you tell me which states are 1-4 in wineries? I assume California, New York, and Oregon are up there, but would like confirmation.

Thanks!

Hi Nancy! In my quick Google search, I found a report from 2009 by WineAmerica.org that shows California at 2,440, Washington at 538, Oregon at 329, New York at 271 and Virginia at 169. These numbers are out of date, as Virginia now has more than 200 wineries. We’re growing hand over fist! :) I’m sure other states are growing quickly, too, but did not find any other stats to share just yet. For more information about Virginia’s wine industry, I would suggest you contact the Virginia Wine Office. They’re the true experts! http://www.virginiawine.org/industry/marketing-office/
