Dakotah Vineyards and Winery is a father-son business, started in 1986 as a producer of fresh Muscadine grapes. Over the years, as the vineyards grew, we found ourselves following in the footsteps of the great French Huguenots. In the 1500's, the French Huguenots began the rich history of wine making in Florida. We at Dakotah are honored to be one of the many Florida farm wineries continuing this tradition today.
