Welcome to Rosa Fiorelli Winery
Rosa Fiorelli Winery, Inc. is a family-owned and operated business located just south of Lake Manatee in the rolling hills of eastern Manatee County. Rosa and her husband Antonio moved to this area from Casteldaccia, Sicily, and were struck by the similarities here to their native land. Soon there were five rows of bunch grapes in the backyard with the garden, and a corner of the garage closed off for making wine.
The vines were only the beginning! As more grapes became available, Rosa and Antonio expanded their wine making activities as well. Today the Winery has its own building for fermenting and bottling, and a separate building for tasting and sales. We have recently expanded to 10 acres of vineyard and a 3000 sq. ft. winery. Mature grapevines allow for u-pick fresh grapes bronze or black Muscadine grapes in early August to September. After being in business since 1998, we have already earned over 100 awards in the commercial international wine competition; from the prestigious gold, as well as the silver and bronze.
