Description: In Michigan, wine tourism is perceived as increasingly important concept because more and more tourists visit wineries and wine tasting rooms annually. However there have been few studies conducted concerning the economic impacts of wineries in Michigan even though the industry has been recognized as having significant economic impact potential. The primary purpose of this study is to quantify both the economic impacts of winery visitors and wine production in Michigan. The three objectives that guided the design of the study are to: (1) segment winery visitors based on purpose of trip and length of trip, (2) estimate the economic impacts of winery visitors in Michigan using MITEIM, and (3) estimate the economic impacts of the wine production industry in Michigan using IMPLAN model.
