The American wine industry has gone from erstwhile underdog to $20 billion international power player. The Judgement of Paris played a large part in our development, putting California on the global stage and providing bragging rights to generations of star-spangled wine lovers.
Today, California has the most wineries of any state in the U.S., clocking in at more than 4,800. West Coast wine hubs Washington and Oregon follow closely behind.
We used data from the American Association of Wine Economists to plot the states with the most wineries in America. (The full list is below.)
