Wine Industry Advisor’s Top Articles of 2023: Viticulture and Winemaking


In 2023, Wine Industry Advisor continued its mission to provide you — our broad audience of professionals and enthusiasts — the latest, most important information about key topics facing our industry. 

As this year comes to a close, we’ve taken a look back on 2023’s most-read articles. Topics span the spectrum, from technological advances and modern marketing to government regulations, viticultural developments, winemaking concerns and even a few journalist profiles. It’s a fair reflection of both the breadth of information WIA strives to deliver, as well as the curiosity and informational savvy of our readers.

Wine Industry Advisor would like to thank its dedicated readership for another year of enthusiasm and support. We look forward to boosting our editorial effort even more in 2024. Happy holidays and Happy New Year from our WIA family to yours. —Alexandra Russell, WIA Managing Editor
