Did you know that there is a wine oasis in South Florida?
Ever wanted to try a wine made with avocados? How about coconuts? What about beer made with mango?
I recently went with a few friends to Schnebly Redlands Winery & Brewery just south of Miami in Homestead. This family friendly venue (oh yeah, we brought the kids!) holds varied events throughout each month where you can enjoy the the tastes of the locally grown and crafted from tropical fruits that are special to South Florida.
Yup. Tropical fruits in wine. Can you say yummy??
This enchanting winery is equipped with a grand tasting room where you can try the varied flavors of wine that they offer, as well as buy cold bottles to enjoy on the premises. There is also a bar on the end of the grounds where they offer the many flavored beers. The large tiki hut is a wonderful place for celebrations and dancing.

My favorite wine? The Cocovino. This wine exhibits an oaky nose and refreshing hints of coconut and lemongrass on the palate, with a long buttery finish. Mmmmmm!
The next time you want something interesting and different to do in South Florida, head on down to Schnebly Redlands Winery & Brewery. I promise, you won't be disappointed!
And if you can't make it to the winery, you can order bottles online from their website or purchase these tropical delights from Florida Publix Supermarkets or Walgreens.
