Fun, Food, and Free Wine Tastings

Just 25 miles west of Orlando lies a Florida jewel: Lakeridge Winery and Vineyard. You may have seen the labels when perusing the local wine selections at your favourite shop, but were you aware that it's so close?

And this is no boring vineyard, either. Not only are there free wine tastings and winery tours seven days a week, but they also host special events year-round. Every Saturday in July, for example, there will be live music provided for your enjoyment as you snack on cheeses and sip wines in the vineyard. The 18th Annual Grape Stomp is coming up in August (the 18th and 19th), in December, there's a Wine & Chocolate Festival, and that's just a small taste of all this local vineyard has to offer.

If you're looking for something to do on a leisurely afternoon, head to their website, take a drive to visit them at 19239 U.S. 27 North, Clermont FL 34715, or call 1-800-768-WINE.
