Around Town - Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards

Pin It Back in July, a friend and I went and toured the Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards, located at 19239 US 27 North, Clermont, FL  34715.  On the day that we visited, there was free blues music out on the lawn.  Here are a few pictures from that afternoon.  Enjoy!

The front of the winery

Some shots of the vineyards

Some of the people out enjoying the live music

A very cool carved door

A potted plant.....whose vines and leaves make for an interesting ceiling

Some antique wine making supplies

Each barrel served as a tasting table for a different type of wine

This machine is used to shake the grapes off the vine

Florida is so humid that they can't make wine in oak barrels...

...instead they used large stainless steel vats

An amusing mouse pad available at the store

Corks in a cork cage

The tour is free and takes about 45 minutes and is extremely informative and educational.  It also includes free tasting samples of 8-12 different wines!  I highly recommend spending an afternoon there!
