Moss Adams LLP, the Farm Credit Alliance, and Turrentine Brokerage are committed to continuing to serve as thought leaders in the wine industry, and we view the report as an opportunity to provide wineries, grape growers, and negociants with comparative and insightful information. This survey builds on the results published by Moss Adams in 2009 that analyzed a range of topics including general industry trends, sales and production data, viticulture data along with operating and financial metrics by region.
The goal of the survey? To bring you valuable, insightful data and analysis to help you benchmark your operating and financial results against industry leaders.
In 1973, the year Turrentine Brokerage was founded, California crushed just over 1 million tons of grapes for wine. Today, that number is rapidly approaching 4 million. Over these 40 years, we have witnessed extensive change within the industry while passing the torch from Dan Turrentine to Bill Turrentine and now on to Steve Fredricks. The company has grown from one employee to 21 in that time continues to expand. With great appreciation, we thank all of you who have worked with us over the last 40 years and look forward to the next 40. Cheers!
