The Craft Wine Association is a non-profit, formed in 2016 to advocate for the interest of craft wineries around the Nation.

There are more than 11,000 wineries in America. 80% of them produce less than 5,000 cases annually. Another 16% produce between 5,000 and 49,000. That consitutues 96% of the wineries in the industry. We advocate for those 96%

Our Mission: Support small wineries.

How is that done:

The Craft Wine Association works alongside industry members to discuss and gather information on legislation to ensure the interest of small wineries are being taken into account.

We gather and share important industry news with our producers, while also holding webinars where producers can participate and share their opinions.

We offer the designation of Certified Craft Wine to qualifying wineries and list wineries in our national directory.

Members also enjoy benefits such as the sharing of industry insights and best practices, and participation in our advocacy program. We’re on a mission to help small wineries thrive!
