About the study
Every three years, OWB commissions a comprehensive study to examine the impact of the wine and wine grape industries on Oregon’s economy. It evaluates revenues, jobs and wages derived from sectors ranging from core businesses of grape growing and wine production as well as others like distribution and tourism. It also evaluates the impact of the next layer of related businesses, including suppliers and service providers, and finally incorporates the impact of employees within the complete supply chain spending their earned wages.
