Hmm, that kind of distinction makes life even more complicated. You
can have vineyards that don't make wine (eg, I have a friend whose
family grows grapes that they get turned into wine on contract), and
thus wineries that don't grow grapes (or at least, grow a small
portion of their own grapes).

Wish there was an agriculture=* tag. Life could be simple:


This location grows grapes, produces wine, is a tourist attraction,
and sells wine.

(Note that for tourism purposes, you only care about the last two.)
