Complimentary Tours and Wine Tasting are offered seven days a week. Tours start at 10:15 am Monday - Saturday, and 11:15 am on Sundays. Last tours are offered at approx. 3:45 p.m. everyday. Tours usually run every 30 minutes and begin with a 15 minute video presentation which shows the growing of the Florida grapes to the wine making process and the finishing with the bottling and labeling. Your personal Tour Guide will then show you the production area and the spectacular view of the vineyards where the grapes are grown and harvested. The Wine Tasting is held at the large tasting counter. A selection of award winning wines ranging from dry to sweet with sparkling are usually offered. The winery tour and wine tasting lasts approximately 45 minutes.
During our festivals and special events, our wine tasting operates differently from our standard tasting. The number of visitors we have during our festivals and special events exceeds our capacity to accommodate everyone at our standard tasting bar, so we switch to a walk-through style tasting. The walk-through tasting begins with a quick ID check where you will receive a wine sample tasting cup, and wine list. You will then wind through our production area to a number of stations where you will receive samples of our top selling wines. The tasting ends inside our large wine shop full of our wine products and specialty wine gifts.
