2023 MWC Specialty Crop Block Grant Survey Results
The Michigan Wine Collaborative (MWC) received a MDARD / USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant award for 2021-2022 to increase the competitiveness of Michigan Grape and Wine Producers. As a part of this campaign the MWC collected information on a specific outcome indicator that measured the change in Wine Grape Sales from 2021 to 2022. The results of two industry surveys indicate that Michigan grape and wine producers assigned a total value of $22.5M to their grape crop in 2022, an increase of 78% over the 2021 crop value of $12.6M. The total number of cases of wine sold across all sales channels was 950K, an increase of 58%. It should be noted, an additional 39 responses were collected in 2022 and an additional 1,000 acres were represented in the 2022 survey results when compared to the 2021 results.
