Florida’s 4 Finest Wineries
Muscadine grapes might as well be sweet, sweet currency in Florida. Oenophiles will be surprised to learn that in the state recognized for retirees, a general lack of inclement weather, and no shortage of vacation destinations, muscadines are king. These saccharine grapes native to the state are only 1 reason why the wineries of Florida are both refreshingly atypical and visit-worthy.
Wine traditionalists beware. Those diehard wine enthusiasts expecting a full-bodied cabernet or a traditional Italian port and an easy chair to drink it in might be surprised. Anticipate something more modern and a little left of the norm. Expect avocado wine made from the oil’s separation during fermentation. Don’t question the sweet sting of the sparkling citrus varieties as they hit your tongue. This isn’t the place for conventional rule. This is Florida, where wine can be fruit-inspired, grown on the vine, or even personalized. And these 4 wineries are some of the state's finest.
