Licenses Required For Importing And Selling

Good day everybody, I am trying to start a business of importation of spirits from South America. I have found as much information online as I could about the licensing process and requirements, secured the rights with the producer, who is already registered with the FDA, but now I'm facing a dilemma. I know I need an Importer License from the Federal Government. Do I need one from the State Government too? (my business will be based in Florida) I've read conflicting comments on different websites about that, ranging from yes to no to only needing the Federal import license and a Wholesaler license at the State level. Could you help me clear that one please? Thank you

How To Preserve A Bottle Of Wine.

I use a vacuum pump system to preserve a open bottle of wine. My problem is that there is different size bottle openings. When the bottle is a little bigger at the opening the vacuum stopper is too loose and the vacuum doesn't have a good seal. Is there different size stoppers to fit different size bottles?
