The promo implied an orange grove setting but it's just mostly a wine gift shop on a busy road with a winery attached. The tour is sub par and the wine is terrible. I drove 2 hrs because of the Trip Advisor rating and regretted it.

Especially since you went out of your way to see us, I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your tour and tasting when you stopped by, Paul. We always hope that our promotional material in the "About Us" section of our website and in other sources fairly represents the experience our guests will have when they visit.

Definitely a taste of Florida! We stopped here on the way to the airport, and it was a great way to end our trip. The employee offered us a free wine tasting and was knowledgeable and friendly. He offered us both dry and sweet wines so we could experience both. It's fun to try things that you normally wouldn't find... More

My boyfriend and I did the tour with Kelsey. Kelsey spoke well, was very personable and energetic, not robotic or annoyed. She was very generous and patient, answering our questions and making knowledgeable suggestions. We didn't feel rushed to finish or pushed to buy. They have a tasteful variety and really, every kind is great! I can't say enough good... More

My sisters and I were driving around St. Petersburg Florida and saw the signs for the winery. We decided to check it out. What a nice surprise! The wines are all fruit based and pretty sweet, so if you like sweet wines, these are the ones for you. It is a nice store with a lot of unique wine gifts.... More

I'm glad you enjoyed the gift shop and friendly service, Angie! While we're famous for our fruit wines, we also offer smoothies, slushies, champagnes, and other items, so I really believe everyone can find something they like. I hope you'll consider returning at some point in the future as we continue to learn, grow, and improve as a business. Until... More

We moved to Florida almost a year ago and have been exploring the wine scene. This place is pretty cool and we look forward to coming back to take the tour. We got to try 8 different wines free of charge and ended up buying some to bring to Ohio with us to share with our out of state friends.... More

They say they have wines people like right away and they aren't lying. The wines are great!! Fun history and quite an operation, putting out LOTS of choices. If you can't find a wine here you like then you just aren't trying.
