Certified Florida Farm Wineries – What are They, Where are They?

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has created an agritourism designation called “Certified Florida Farm Winery.” There are currently 23 of these throughout the state, a little more than half of the total number of Florida wineries.

This certification has nothing to do with the type or quality of wine made, but rather the amount, and a few other factors. Certified wineries are required to produce and sell less than 250,000 gallons of wine per year, 60% of which must be made from Florida agricultural products. They must maintain a minimum of 5 acres of vineyards in Florida, and be open to the public for tours, tastings, and sales at least 30 hours a week.

Happy Wine Trails!
