This November on Vine Pair, we’re celebrating everything about American Wine. From up-and-coming regions and our favorite bottles to the challenges winemakers are facing right now, we’re turning a spotlight on the industry across the United States.
The world is slowly opening back up, and as travel begins to feel safer, wine tourism is coming back with vengeance. Although international vacations are still restricted, America has plenty of domestic destinations of its own — including a growing number of wineries to visit. In fact, recent data shows a steady rise in winery openings, even during the Covid years.
As more and more wineries open — with the current number of U.S. bonded wineries at over 16,000and counting — some states have come out of the woodwork with new flourishing wine scenes. (Who would’ve known that Texas has more wineries than Oregon, the state with the most wineries per capita?)
This data also shows the progress that up-and-coming wine regions, including Virginia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, have made in recent years, keeping us excited about what these states will produce next.
California leading the way with 6010 wineries. Including Santa Barbara County Solvang Wine tours and Santa Ynez Valley wine tours Just won the Best Wine Region of the year 2021.
