Wine Tasting in Fruit Cove

Select Local Merchants

  • Vino Del Grotto
    Vino Del Grotto harbors wines for sipping by the glass or carting home. Like homesick stomach butterflies, more than 20 wines by the glass flutter down tongues during tasting flights, tantalizing each guest with three 3-ounce portions of grapey goodness in customized selections such as Yosemite View chardonnay or German-imported Valckenberg dornfelder. Peach-apricot chardonnay and green-apple riesling sate fruit-partial palates, and sips of sparkling Belle Jardin brut bubble upon taste buds, giving them the effervescent feeling of flight that ostriches only dream of.

  • Island Grove Wine Company
    When Island Grove Ag Products found that they had blueberries that weren't able to be used for fresh produce, winemaker Chase Marden stepped in and, to the delight of all, started turning the berries into "Kinda Dry", "Sorta Sweet" and a Blueberry Moscato wine. Now, he runs the Island Grove Wine Company at its 10,000-square-foot winery, pressing the fruit of his labor into a lineup of vinos made from blueberries, strawberries, apples, raspberries, blackberries, and peach. While visiting the winery, guests can participate in free tastings held throughout the week, tour the facility, and stock up on bottles filled with wine from tanks just steps from the fields from which they were harvested.

  • Cork and Olive
    The wine connoisseurs at the independently owned Cork & Olive Lake Mary franchise introduce visitors to international wines, most of which originate from small, family-owned vineyards. In addition to pouring samples at a broad, wooden table, Cork & Olive’s team hosts events that range from in-home tastings to the monthly Sip&Dip, where wines come paired with select appetizers. Besides the many bottles of wines, the shelves also display craft beers, sake, chocolates, and cheeses, as well as gourmet olive oils and spices. Specialty services include custom wine-bottle labels for events, special orders for hard-to-find wines, and gifts such as wine aprons and holders and memoirs from picked-over grapes.

  • The Grotto
    The Grotto Wine & Tapas Bar in the heart of San Marco offers a heavy selection of small plates, bruschetta, fromage and desserts to choose from. With unique and shareable bites like a lamb sausage empanada with tzatziki sauce or beef loin skewers laced with a pert horseradish crème fraiche, this upscale tapas bar is a treat for the taste buds. Dozens of wines are available by the glass, and some 300 bottles can be had in full, making The Grotto a great place to try lots of vino while you and a few friends nibble on snacks. The overall décor is fashioned as an Italian wine cellar, complete with tan walls, tall arches and slanted ceilings, while rose wine-colored Italian tile, rusty brick walls and dim recessed lighting makes patrons feel like they are in a hole-in-the-wall Italian piazza sipping freshly crushed grapes.
