Florida Wineries and Vineyards

A century before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, wine was being made in Florida. "Florida" was the name given by Spanish explorers in recognition of the state's beautiful fruits and flowers. Among that rich vegetation, native grapevines were discovered on Florida's east coast. Spanish settlers harvested the wild grapes and, applying the same traditions of their homeland, converted Florida's wild muscadine into the first American wine.

Through the centuries, Florida's rich soils and rolling hills have supported both vineyards and winemaking. The success of muscadine wine is the byproduct of Old World traditions and new world production methods. Smooth, aromatic and nostalgic muscadine wines are a southern specialty. For 75 years, University of Florida researchers have developed varieties that flourish in Florida's subtropical climate, well-suited to the state’s soils and perfect for winemaking.

Visiting a winery or vineyard in Florida is a fascinating experience for the whole family. It's a part of Florida beyond the beaches and amusement parks. Florida's vineyards, wineries and flavorful wines are interesting parts of Florida history that few people know about, but one which more and more people are discovering. You can stroll through a vineyard, view a harvest, watch the winemaking, corking, bottling and labeling processes, and sample the wonderful and distinctive varieties of delicious Florida wines.
