American Winery Guide (AWG) is an online compendium of wineries in the United States.[1][2] Founded by Jim Finley and Tim Donahoe in 2007, American Winery Guide catalogues and maps American wineries by state and viticultural area.[3][4] The guide lists the address, owner, winemaker, founding date, hours of operation, tasting fees, and production statistics for over 7,500 wineries.[5][6] Additionally, American Winery Guide employs correspondents who write articles about wineries in an area.[7][8] In 2013, American Winery Guide partnered with CellarPass and VinoVisit, two winery reservation services, to allow customers to search for wineries on American Winery Guide's website, and then book a wine tasting or winery tour using the reservation companies.[9][10]
