This area was once the center of the State's grape industry. After years of phenomenal growth, Lakeridge ranks as Florida's largest premium winery, and remains a pioneer in the development of table and sparkling wines from muscadine and hybrid grapes. Vintage-dated varietals from hybrids such as Stover and Blanc Du Bois are produced and marketed along with blended and sparkling wines from native Muscadine grapes.More than 110,000 people are expected to visit the winery annually, enjoying its extensive tasting room, festivals and gift shop. With an overall production of over 80,000 cases, that's over 960,000 bottles. Lakeridge Wines are sold under the Lakeridge and Lakeridge Reserve brands wines at the winery and at major supermarkets and wine shops throughout Florida . Together, these labels have won more than 700 awards for excellence in winemaking. Complimentary Winery tours and wine tasting are offered 7 days a week; Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. – 5 p.m. « less

The tours start with a movie, giving the background into this local winery. Then you take a short tour of the storage and bottling areas. Then down to the bar/store area where they educate you on proper wine etiquette, while you sample most of their wines. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.

One of the major producers of wine in the area. Great wines at a good price. Take the tour and do a free wine tasting of about 7 wines. All are locally made between two distilleries.

Small winery with good tasting wines. They have mostly white wines and some ports. It was about a 45 min drive from Orlando and not a lot of things to see on the drive there. Not sure I'd go back again.

The tour of the winery is brief but maybe that is okay. It starts with a video that gives you the history of the owners (and their move from the panhandle into central Florida) along with the history of the site of the current vineyard. It also contains information about some of how they make their wine, including their sparkling... More

Though it can be a distance to get there from Orlando, we had a blast at their annual Harvest Festival where we stomped grapes for free (very messy but so much fun, don't ear nice clothes it gets everywhere), did the wine tasting tour that was free and took home a few goodies from the gift shop. I also loved... More

The winery is easily located right off the highway. Tours are free and short but, they are also informative. The wine tasting is also free. The prices in the shop are very reasonable. Overall it's a very charming place.

Great place for short day trip, easy to get to off the interstate or turnpike. Good tour but it starts with a movie in one of the upstairs room, difficult to reach for some folks. Great wine tasting experience, guide very knowledgeable and entertaining. Will go back for one of their many festivals.

This is another of those places we've been going to go to for quite some time. Pretty vineyard in the rolling hills of Clermont. The tour starts with a short video of the owners and the how they came to start this vineyard and winery. Very interesting and well done. Then the tour guide, Doug, took us to see the... More
