Wine industry employed 1.7 million people last year

Study 🕔October 23, 2017

Most of the $219.9 billion that the wine industry produced last year came from California, according to a recent study.  

The National Association of American Wineries said that our industry is responsible for 1.74 million American jobs at more than 10,000 wineries across the nation. That represents nearly 700,000 acres of vineyards!

About 43 million tourists visited wineries last year, according to the study.

Mt. Vernon is proud of our industry, the jobs it produces and the joy it brings to millions of Americans each year.

Year round, our guests visit us in Auburn for wine tasting and special events, like our Wine Cave Dinner. The scenic landscape and openness of our vineyards provide the perfect backdrop to a wonderful day of tasting with family and friends. Our guests love the charm of our tasting room, which is an old restored milk house originally built in 1950. But most of all, they love the wine and good company.

When you come to visit Mt Vernon Winery, you will see familiar face of wine members.

The vastness of activity and large number of economic impact in our industry is no surprise. Wine brings people together in a special way as they enjoy family events, important dinners or a quiet evening at home.

We hope you can take the time to visit us soon.
