We have visited the Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards located in Clermont, Florida. It sits on a 127-acre estate in gently rolling countryside some 25 miles west of downtown Orlando. Lakeridge now ranks as Florida’s largest premium winery, reported as 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.
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.
This June brings the 22nd Annual Harvest Festival and with it the opportunity to give some money to charity and do some grape stomping! The small entry donation of $2 will benefit Cornerstone Hospice of Lake & Sumter . As well as the grape stomping there are lots of other activities for all ages plus over 80 local Artists and Crafters displaying their work. There is also live music over the whole weekend and you can buy wine, beer, soft drinks and a variety of food.
Sounds like a great way to spend a half day for very little money and for a lovely break from the hectic theme parks.
