Wineries Here, There, Everywhere

I noticed a short story in Wines and Vines the other day about the continued growth of wineries in the United States.  It seems that year over year there are 450 or so new wineries in the United States, with about half of those coming from....you guessed it, California.

I've been telling people there are over 5,000 commercially active wineries in the United States, it seems that is a number that I need to adjust up quite a bit as the final American talley is well over 7,000.

For a wine club, more choice is definitely a good thing especially since so many of these entries are going to be small operations for a while and likely will fit the mold of what we're looking for, if they can achieve some really high quality wine.
