Abstract:
Currently there are fifty-three wineries in the state, with ten more expected in 2006, and another twenty in 2007. State winemakers face a formidable array of challenges: Pierce's Disease, grape root borers, Ph factors, Supreme Court rulings, the weather, budgeting, and marketing. Still, 600,000 gallons of wine, valued at $34 million, were produced and sold in 2004, making the state the twelfth largest wine producer in the country. Vineyards and wineries create around 835 jobs and have an economic impact of $79 million.
