Winery opening continues segment expansion

By Larry Dreiling

Over 100 years ago, Kansas was home to over 5,000 acres of wine vineyards. That number shrank to next to nothing by the end of Prohibition, but with the passage of the Kansas Farm Winery Act of 1995 came measured growth in the viticulture industry.

Kansas currently is home to 19 wineries, which combine to produce more than 67,000 gallons of wine and host thousands of visitors each year. Using locally grown grapes, berries and other fruits, these Kansas winemakers produce a wide variety of delicious favorites, including some not found anywhere else, according to the Kansas Department of Commerce.

Kansas' vintners have received more than 300 international awards for their wines in recent years, often drawing comparisons to the celebrated wines of California's Napa Valley and the Finger Lakes region in New York.
