Wineries In The Greater Citrus County

Didn't have a chance to get away this summer? There's still time to visit a place that might seem very foreign: Florida's wine country.  


Vintners and growers are working to make wine across Florida, from Fernandina Beach to Destin across the Panhandle and as far south as the Fort Myers area.

Occasionally they bring in chardonnay or merlot juice from California or Chile. More often, they make wine from what grows here, hybrid grapes, native muscadines and fruits from carambola to blueberry. And with each vintage, they get better.

Let's take a look at a few of the wineries that are in the area of the Villages of Citrus Hills.
