The wine industry is booming in the United States — and a new study funded by nonprofit WineAmerica has the numbers to prove it. Across the country, folks in wine-related careers — from production and cultivation, to marketing, wholesale, and more — are projected to contribute a collective $276 billion for the United States economy in 2022.
On Sept. 19, The National Association of American Wineries published an economic impact study of the wine industry. It includes a state-by-state report outlining the various economic impacts of wine production, shipping, distribution, and retail. The comprehensive study also includes on-premise consumption in its data collection.
