Wineries in Florida--a beginning list

In my search for Florida wines I have gone as far south on the East coast to Redland for Schnebly's Tropical Fruit wines, and as far north as St. Augustine for San Sebastian wines (some muscadine and some mixed with other grape juices).

In the interior of Florida I have been to: Lakeridge Winery & Vineyard in Clermont (muscadine wines), as well as Henscratch Farms Vineyard & Winery in Lake Placid (muscadine wine and one mixed with Cabernet).

On the West coast, I 've been to a winery near Everglades City located inside a shopping mall. I don't remember the label name because the wine needed more work.   Then most recently, I went to Eden Vineyards & Winery in Alva (using a grape vine called Venifera hybrid they produce Chardonnay, cab sav...etc).
I look forward to the day when I can find these wines in local Florida restaurants instead of just at the wineries.
