Conducted annually since 1990, this survey is recognized as the premier source for compensation data for the wine industry. The labor market for wineries and vineyards is distinctly different from the broader consumer product and agricultural world, thus is not captured by the broad general-market compensation surveys.As a participant in the Wine Industry Compensation Survey you will have access to the information and tools necessary to make data-driven decisions to support the compensation programs for your unique industry.
The 2023 edition of the survey contains data from 214 participants representing 400+ wineries/vineyards. Data was submitted on 287 jobs, with over 17,900 individual employee pay rates.
We would like to thank the members of the Advisory / Design Team for their support and assistance in designing this survey.
