Wine and Spirits grow like crazy in 2006

Wineries and Spirits both grew like crazy in 2006, new studies show.

In California alone, there were 460 new wineries setup last year bringing the total market cap in the U.S. to an amazing US$11.4 billion. Of course, this is still no match to California's production, by itself, of $13+ billion in marijuana.

Spirits grew at a steady clip as well, showing a 7% increase over the year before.

I'm looking forward to see A.A.'s membership numbers and see how well they did too.
