We’re pleased to provide you with the results of our 2015 Wine Industry Benchmarking Survey. 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 abbreviated survey, conducted at the close of 2014, gives growers and wineries a collective sense of what winery and vineyard managers are thinking as they gauge the impacts of three consecutive record to near-record harvests, sales trends, inventory balances, future grape supply, the economy, and other factors that come into play as they face important planning decisions in 2015 on where to best invest company resources.
In all, we had 305 survey participants comprised of growers, wineries, and negociants based in California, Oregon, and Washington. We’ve presented the information by state, by subregions in California, and by overall winery production. For inquiries regarding the report data or additional benchmarks, please contact Bill Vyenielo 707-508-3821.
The goal of the survey? To bring you valuable, insightful data and analysis to help you benchmark your business against industry leaders.
The continued success of this survey depends on increased participation by wine business throughout the West. We encourage you to participate in our future surveys and urge others in the industry to join you. We’d like to thank those of you who did participate in the survey. Your participation is what made this report possible.]]>
