Meet your guide at a centrally-located meeting point in Orlando, then make the 30-minute trip to Lakeridge Winery in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Learn about the remarkable history of Florida wines, and hear why historians call Florida the birthplace of American wine production. Follow the locally made wines from grape to glass on a tour of the wine making process and the picturesque vineyards.
See hybrid and muscadine grapes ripening in the Florida sun, and find out how these varieties thrive in the hot, humid climate. Taste your way through Lakeridge Winery’s bottles, with samples of seven to ten varieties of local wines, including less familiar varieties like Blanc du Bois and Crescendo.
Before returning to Orlando, join your fellow wine lovers for a classic Italian lunch, then finish the day with a gift: a bottle of local wine. Note: minimum age is 21 years with valid photo ID. Please advise of any dietary restrictions at the time of booking.
