Producing wineries in the U.S. 2020, by state

California is the wine capital of the United States, and by no small margin. In 2020, the state had over five times the number of wineries of the next closest state and was home to nearly 50 percent of all wineries in the nation. Unsurprisingly, California also produces the bulk of the country’s wine, nearly 600 million gallons in 2017. In fact, if California were a country, it would be the fourth largest wine producer worldwide, behind France, Italy and Spain.

An ideal location for wine making

California’s climate and landscape make it particularly well suited to growing wine grapes. The state receives year-round sunshine and its varied landscape supports a variety of wine grapes. The coast mixes the warm inland air with cool ocean breezes ideal for cooler climate varieties such as Pinot Noir, while sun-loving varieties like Merlot find their home on the drier hillsides. Chardonnay was the most crushed grape variety in Californian wine production in 2017, accounting for 14.5 percent of all wine grapes. Paradoxically, red wine grapes were overall the most crushed type in the state, with around 2.2 million tons of red wine grapes crushed in 2017.
