Florida Guide > Other Activities

Lakeside Vineyard and Winery is situated north of Clermont on Highway 27 and provides a great opportunity to taste the wines produced locally. Despite the problems of grape growing in Florida where the climate includes extreme heat, drought, humidity and occasional hurricanes and tornados, this winery has flourished. The vineyard is full of Native American grapes and Florida hybrids which can tolerate the hot humid weather of Florida. You won’t find Pinot Noir or Chardonnay here but there is plenty to enjoy if you treat it as an adventure. Free tours of the vineyard and winery, including free wine tasting, are available seven days a week at this, one of Florida’s largest premium wineries. If you have the time it is well worth a visit.

However, wine tasting is not all that Lakeside Vineyard has to offer. Throughout the year they hold a variety of events which are either free or are charged a $2 donation or entrance fee.

In 2008 these are the events which were held, and which are likely to be repeated in 2009, so if you are in the area, and you enjoy wine and music then do try to go along to one of these events:
