Miller Cellars LLC's chief vintner and CEO Lynn Miller concocted her first batch of homemade wine in 2008, when she found a recipe for dandelion wine in Southern Living magazine. Ever since, she's worked tirelessly to improve her skills, and today, she shares them during hands-on classes that teach students how to make batches of wine and alcohol from scratch. Her business also provides yearly memberships, which grant aspiring vintners access to unlimited classes and discounted supplies.
With a fleet of kayaks and standup paddleboards, Bay Paddlesports gives guests a chance to glide across the coastal waters of Destin under their own steam. The coastal company rents out 12' Bote-brand paddleboards, which offer a sturdy perch on which guests can stand as they propel their vessel through the surf. Those who wish to sit back as they roam the tides can do so in one of Bay Paddlesports' Old Town–brand kayaks.
Helen Back believes a meal should be about more than just food. That's why its menu serves up the right portions to enjoy while watching a golf game or lounging on an outdoor patio. Try a white-sauce pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, and black olives or down a bowl of nachos covered in spicy meat and jalapeños, while washing down your meal with one of the frequent drink specials from the full bar. Weekly specials include free pizza for members of the military and motorcyclists, and the restaurant's connection to the community also extends to fundraising for local youth and the Special Ops Warrior Foundation.
