It’s been a good last few years for U.S. wine exports, as it surged 64% since 2007.

While most of the nation’s wine comes from California, Florida and New Jersey are also getting up there.

In Florida, $17 million were made from exporting wine in 2012; up from $11 million in 2007. In New Jersey, $12 million was earned from exporting wine in 2012; up from $8 million in 2007.

The top overseas destinations for U.S. wines are in the U.K. and China. Wine experts say this is because consumers want unique products that aren’t yet sold in other countries.
