Wineries in the US
Operators in the Wineries industry engage in at least one component of the winemaking process, which includes growing and harvesting grapes, crushing pressed grapes into unfermented wine and fermenting the wine. Operators in this industry also make wine blends and brandies. Over the five years to 2018, the Wineries industry has experienced robust growth. Much of this growth can be attributed to shifting consumer preferences. Millennials in particular have expanded their palates toward domestic wine, moving away from standard light beers. Over the five years to 2023, the Wineries industry is forecast to grow at a slightly slower pace. Though consumer spending is projected to continue rising, regulation over the alcoholic beverage sector is also expected to increase. Continued legislation against direct-to-consumer sales, often led by major distribution companies, will stand to threaten this new market. Still, most economic factors are anticipated to favor industry operators.
