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.
