January 2018 Data  -  Released on February 15, 2018
 
January U.S. Winery Count hits 9,650
Our database of wineries is showing a count of 9,650. This is a net increase of 563 over January 2017. Over the course of 2017, we added over 900 wineries and removed 337 due to closure or acquisition. The growth is coming from an equal mix of bonded and virtual wineries. Fifty-two percent of new wineries hold a bonded permit. Ninety-eight percent of the new wineries are very small, producing less than 5,000 cases annually. Seven of the new wineries are in the 5 - 49,999 case production range.
