Toasting the States with the most wineries in 2020 vs. 2018

American wine regions – Source:

As the data shows in the following chart, among the states with the most wineries, Colorado and Texas lead the way in the number of new wineries added over the past two (2) years. All 12 states saw growth in wineries and none come close the numbers found in California. Washington moved ahead of Oregon and Pennsylvania passed Virginia during this time period, but their numbers are so close it is likely they will occasionally swap positions back and forth for some time. Cheers!
