10 U.S. Cities That Love Wine More Than You

There’s really nothing to whine about here because Infogroup, the parent company of Salesgenie, is crunching the numbers for you. We’ve identified the top 10 wine cities in the U.S. by looking at cities based on Metropolitan Statistical Areas (that’s MSAs if you like abbreviations) of 1 million or more people with the most wine retailers and wineries per 10,000 residents.

Portland, Oregon, claimed the top slot in the Pacific Northwest, where cities had nearly one-and-a-half wine-related businesses per 10,000 people. California cities also claimed top spots, and that’s not surprising for the vineyard-filled Western state, garnering the nickname “wine country.”

  • San Jose, California
