THE FLORIDA WINERIES REPORT – OCTOBER 2021

The Florida Wineries Report reflects their taxpaid sales of these products. The Data: The Florida Wineries Report reflects data published by the Florida ABT, which is available online here. The ABT monthly publishes the taxpaid sales for each winery and distributor. Unfortunately, the ABT does not publish wineries’ sales to distributors. This means that the Florida Wineries Report reflects only wineries’ taxpaid sales, which are generally made in their tasting rooms. Each April and October, wineries with lapsed licenses and no taxpaid sales within the past 12 months are purged from the Florida Wineries Report. A total of 14 wineries with inactive licenses have been purged in this report. The New Wineries: Bowigens Beer Company (Orlando). Total Number of Wineries: In October 2021, the total number of licensed wineries stood at 114. Of those, 56 wineries reported taxpaid sales for the month. Monthly Performance: Month-to-month taxpaid sales rose by 1.03% in October 2021. Total taxpaid sales during the rolling last-twelve-months (LTM) increased by 0.25%. Average Monthly Production: For reporting wineries, the average taxpaid sales per winery in October 2021 was 95.19 gallons, a monthly increase of 0.97 gallons per winery. Distribution: In October 2021, Florida wineries’ taxpaid sales accounted for 0.16% of all wine gallons sales in Florida (1.6 out of 1,000 wine gallons sold). Would you like The Florida Wineries Report as an Excel spreadsheet? Reports for this month and all months back to July 2021 are available at this link: https://brwlng.co/FLWineries FLORIDA WINERIES REPORTS FOR THIS MONTH Our first table shows each Florida winery’s taxpaid sales volume for the month. Not every Florida winery makes retail sales in a tasting room or taproom. Our next table shows retail sales by each winery for the last 12 months (LTM) ending this month. Our next table looks at the change in each winery’s LTM taxpaid sales from last month. This provides an estimate of a winery’s growth rate from one month to the next, at least to the extent of retail sales. The rightmost column identifies wineries that have less than 12 months of reported taxpaid sales. Each month, a number of wineries report no retail sales or other taxable activities. The next table lists the licensed wineries that reported no activity for the twelve months through this month. Because we’re attorneys: Disclaimer.

The Florida Wineries Report – July 2014

Retail sales are up for the month of July at Florida’s wineries. Notes About this Edition of The Florida Wineries Report All beverage manufacturers holding a AMW (manufacturer or bottler of wine) or a BMCW (manufacturer of wines and cordials) are included in The Florida Wineries Report. This includes cideries, meaderies, vineyards, make-it-yourself wine shops, ready-to-drink alcoholic beverages, and negociant winemakers. They’re all in The Florida Wineries Report, which makes direct comparisons a bit difficult. This edition of The Florida Wineries Report reflects information about each winery’s reported taxpaid sales, as reflected on the ABT’s monthly wholesale reports for July 2014, the most recent information available. Taxpaid sales includes all activities for which the winery itself (rather than its distributor) is required to report and pay Florida’s alcoholic beverage tax. Full production numbers (including retail sales and other production) are not publicly available for wineries. This means that these reports only reflect the wineries’ own tasting room sales and other taxpaid activities, and only if they are no reported by a distributor. We’re working with the ABT to get full production numbers. While the ABT does collect full production numbers, it does not compile the numbers the same way they do the retail sale numbers. All volume numbers are expressed in cases. One case consisting of 12 750 ml bottles contains 2.38 gallons of wine. A handful of Florida wineries have reported no taxpaid sales during the last 12 months. There are many reasons why a Florida winery might report no taxpaid sales. Because we don’t have a basis for ranking these wineries, they are collected in the No Reported Activity table below. Based on taxpaid sales, monthly sales at Florida’s wineries increased a quarter percent (0.25%). However, annualized sales for the winemakers’ was down by 0.97% compared to the prior month.
