Three new Florida wineries were licensed in August 2021.

Monthly Highlights

Florida Wineries: Every manufacturer of alcoholic fruit wine, cider, perry, mead or kombucha is required to be licensed as a winery in Florida. 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.

The New Wineries: Tropical Winery (Lake Placid), Three Hands Mead Co. (Plant City), Green Bench Brewing Co. (St. Petersburg).

Total Number of Wineries: In August 2021, the total number of licensed wineries stood at 126. Of those, 123 wineries reported taxpaid sales for the month.

Monthly Performance: Month-to-month taxpaid sales fell by 6.33% in August 2021. Total taxpaid sales during the rolling last-twelve-months (LTM) increased by1.59%.

Average Monthly Production: For reporting wineries, the average taxpaid sales per winery in August 2021 was 97.96 gallons, a monthly decrease of 6.62 gallons per winery.

Distribution: In August 2021, Florida wineries’ taxpaid sales accounted for 0.18% of all wine gallons sales in Florida (1.8 out of 1,000 wine gallons sold).
