Welcome to the Northwest Winery Cost-Of-Production Calculators, an online resource for Washington, Oregon and Idaho current and prospective winery owners that can help calculate initial investment and annual operating costs of small wineries.
Users are encouraged to develop a complete business plan of which pre-estimated costs from this calculator are only a first step to encourage the user to refine the estimates.
There are six Calculators based on winery size (annual case production): 500 cases, 1,000 cases, 2,000 cases, 3,000 cases, 5,000 cases and 10,000 cases.
Each Calculator has a section on initial equipment and investment costs, operating costs, and cash flow. The cash flow is over a 10-year time period and can be exported to a csv or excel file.
Before You Begin
The Cost-Of-Production Calculators require you to enter your actual costs into the numerical fields. In some instances, the calculator provides industry average figures as default costs, in case you don’t know your actual costs. It is best that you have an idea of cost of production prior to using the calculator.
For the most accurate results, it will be helpful to have your costs on-hand before you begin.
Please review the Calculator FAQ to answer questions about the Calculators.
