Florida wine is a growing industry


What’s growing in Florida? A billion-dollar wine industry.

WUSF News recently interviewed three individuals from the wine industry about how wineries started in Florida, challenges that wineries face, as well as the future of an industry that employs 100,000 people.

Listen to this broadcast to learn how early Spanish explorers brought grapes to Florida. While original grape stocks succumbed to Florida’s heat and humidity, muscadine wine flourished.

Creative entrepreneurs began crafting wines with Florida’s tropical fruits, berries and even avocados. You can sample guava wine, grapefruit wine, or Florida dry blueberry at The Naples Winery at Tin City.
