U.S. wine exports had a record year, rebounding with $1.14 billion in revenue last year, according to a report from the San Francisco-based  Wine Institute.

90 percent of all exports come from California in the United States.

Biz Journals says this is a 25.6 percent increase over 2009 reports.

"With close to 20 percent of California's wine production being sold in other countries, exports represent an important part of our industry's success. To help drive further growth, we continue to work closely with the U.S. government and the international wine community to remove trade barriers and open new markets," said Wine Institute's International Trade Policy Director Tom LaFaille.
