The States With the Most Wineries in 2023 [MAP]

While it sometimes seems like American wine is solely synonymous with California wine, there are wineries in every state — and some are having serious glow-ups. While California still far and away has the leading number of bonded wineries in 2023, this list provided by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) proves that there are several up-and-coming wine regions to watch out for.

States like Washington, Oregon, and New York, which have long been recognized as high-quality wine regions, have shown steady growth into 2023. For example, 53 new bonded wineries have opened in New York since 2021, demonstrating that winemakers are continuing to invest in the region.

Additionally, states with emerging wine regions like Michigan, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Texas have seen a boom in winery openings. Michigan has seen an increase of 232 wineries since 2017, with 41 of those popping up since 2021. And the state that shows the most impressive growth is Texas, gaining 382 wineries since 2017, with 89 of them opening after 2021.

This all goes to show that the U.S. has no shortage of producers, and there are a lot of underrated wine regions to explore. So no matter what state you’re passing through, there is always potential to stop for a tasting!
