The Wine Profit Calculator is a free tool developed specifically for Oregon Wine producers, growers and industry by wine industry educators, Masters of Wine Bree Boskov, education manager with the Oregon Wine Board, and Tim Hanni. This unique tool is the first comprehensive tool of its kind to be designed by a regional board for the economic benefit of its producers. These cost of goods and margin calculators are meant to be used in conjunction with other tools in the suite such as the Wine Portfolio Marketing Sales and Distribution Calculator and the Distributor, Retail & Restaurants Pricing Calculator to give producers accurate forecasting and a complete financial snapshot of production, sales, and marketing and distribution divisions of wine business. The tool is designed to follow the supply chain and value chain decisions that affect the quality and financial success of making and selling wine from the vineyard to the consumer point of sale.
