Washington State Wine Industry

A study commissioned by the Washington State Wine Commission highlights the effect that the state’s wine industry has on the economy. Washington’s wine industry is the second largest in the county behind California. According to the study, the industry contributes $8.6 billion and nearly 30,000 jobs to the local economy. This is nearly three times the amount that was revealed in a similar study in 2007. Read articles discussing this in the Seattle Times and at KOMO news.
