About Florida Orange Groves Winery
Armed with determination and a dream reminiscent of many Florida pioneers, our family started development of our unique wines in 1991. Realizing the importance of striving for exceptional quality, our Florida winery opened its doors in September of 1997 - only after the secrets of making exceptional wine from fruit other than grapes had been discovered. Producing Florida's only ultra-premium tropical, citrus and berry wines, our Florida Farm Winery is proud to say that our tropical, berry and citrus wines have won over 260 medals in international competitions. They are also the only Florida wines ever allowed at Disney's Epcot International Food and Wine Festival held each year beginning in October and our citrus wines are the only Florida citrus wines allowed to display the Florida Department of Citrus' official mark of superior quality - the Florida Sunshine Tree. We are licensed as a winery, wine distributor and a retailer of unique, culturally significant Florida fine wine and premium wine products. We currently produce 43 different varieties of wine. All of our premium specialty tropical, berry and citrus wines are made 100% from the juice indicated by their labels. They are not infused, flavored or blended grape wines, but 100% pure tropical fruit wines. Each individual variety of our wine tastes like the juice that it is made from. So, if you like mangoes, you will love our mango wine! If you like red raspberries, you will love our Eleganta (red raspberry) wine. If you...well, you get the idea. It can take upwards of nine pounds of fruit to give us enough juice for just one bottle of our Mango Mamma, mango wine, Key Lime wine, Pineapple wine or Tangerine wine. Using a special process of fermentation, aging and bottling we produce Florida's only true to the flavor wines. As our customers say after tasting our wine -- "Finally, wines that taste good!"

- 12 BEST OF SHOW AWARDS (9 Florida State Fair, 1 Indiana State Fair, 2 Wines of the South)
