Too much red, red wine?

Virginia-based Trump Winery was cited by the Arizona Department of Liquor for making too much wine. The winery, owned by Eric Trump Manufacturing LLC, produced 56,609 gallons of wine in 2015.

State law allows a farm winery to produce no more than 40,000 gallons of wine annually. Farm wineries also cannot make less than 200 gallons of wine and there is a 20,000-gallon cap for wineries that ship wine to people's homes.

Trump Winery paid a $250 fine for the violation last month. The winery's website claims that it has no affiliation with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, although, the New York businessman initially purchased the winery in 2011. 

Trump Winery could not be reached for comment.
