Santa Rosa, Calif., April 3, 2017 — Moss Adams LLP, one of the largest accounting and consulting firms in the nation, has announced the opening of the 2017 Wine Industry Financial Benchmarking Survey for input.
The confidential results, available in September, will be a useful tool for West Coast wineries and growers to measure their businesses against industry leaders and prepare their strategies for the years ahead. Survey results will provide insights on a range of topics, from sales and production data to operating and financial metrics by region.
“This survey provides valuable comparative financial information for an industry that has few benchmarks,” said Jeff Gutsch, Wine Industry Group leader at Moss Adams. “Too often this type of information is either difficult to come by or difficult to present in a meaningful way without jeopardizing confidentiality.”
The survey will be open for input from April 3 through April 30. Wineries and vineyards who participate will receive a complimentary copy of the final report along with customized financial benchmarks. Nonparticipants will be able to purchase a copy of the final report for $495.
