We traveled through a bit of South Florida on a recent road trip. I have many more spots to share, but will start with the most unexpected stop that we took. We were driving north after an overnight stay in Juno Beach, and while in the Ft. Pierce area, I saw a tiny road sign with grapes that said “winery,” and I immediately turned the car around. We were on an adventure, so it seemed like the right thing to do.
We ended up at Summer Crush Vineyard & Winery.
This is about as Floridian as you can get.
The exterior was lovely.
These wreaths are perfect.
We got inside and found ourselves in a tasting room/store.
Local products, and you can see ribbons for a few of the wines they produce.
There was a larger number of wines available than I would have expected.
Here is the tasting menu. What was the most surprising was that they make actual grape juice! It was intensely delicious.
The wines were good, but the muscadine grapes do seem to run sweet, and so a lot of the wines skewed that way. The ones we enjoyed the most were Webejammin’ and Not Starboard, the second of which is their version of Port. We purchased a bottle of each, along with some for friends.
It was a delicious and unexpected stop on our day. We love visiting wineries in New Jersey, and I will admit to not even realizing that wine is made in Florida.
If you’re ever traveling in or around the Fort Pierce, Florida area, I definitely recommend a stop at Summer Crush Vineyard & Winery. If you aren’t a drinker, the grape juice alone is worth a visit!
