Yes, there are a LOT of wineries

The number of North American wineries grew by over 400 last year to a total of almost 9,500. California grew by 140 to over 4,000, or 43% of the total, with Washington and Oregon in a distant 2nd and 3rd place. Oregon closed the gap on Washington by adding 57 wineries whereas its neighbor to the north added just 14. Why the bigger growth in Oregon? Pinot Noir is hot.
