REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (May 27, 2014) –The Ohio wine and grape industry today released its 2012 Economic Impact report, which finds that Ohio’s grape and wine industry has a significant impact of $786 million on the state’s economy, a 34 percent increase from the 2008 economic study released in 2010.
“Ohio’s wine industry is growing and represents a significant segment of the state’s $105 billion food and agriculture industry,” said Ohio Department of Agriculture Director David T. Daniels. “Ohio grape growers and wine makers all over the state are creating quality, award-winning products that rival those produced in well-known wine producing areas like California and Europe. The newly released 2012 Economic Impact Study is a great illustration of their success.”
Highlights of the report include the following:
The Economic Impact report was commissioned and funded by the Ohio Grape Industries Committee. A copy of the complete report can be found at http://www.tasteohiowines.com/economic-impact-study.aspx. The committee was created in 1982 and operates in-part through the Ohio Department of Agriculture, providing marketing and research opportunities to Ohio’s wineries and vineyards. The committee helps increase consumer awareness of Ohio’s modern, high-quality wine industry.
