Keel and Curley Winery complements Florida’s warm evening breezes with a trio of outdoor concerts, which funnels the sounds of three diverse performers into the thirsting ears of music fans. As the finale to an all-day festival at the winery, veteran ivory tickler Jim Witter and The Piano Men lead off the series on February 25 with a tribute to Elton John and Billy Joel. Equipped with a repertoire of chart-topping hits, such as “Your Song” and “Just the Way You Are,” the band shuttles listeners on a euphonious voyage through the 1970s while a rear-screen projection displays some of the decade’s most popular images, people, and newspaper headlines about subliminal messages found in Alpha-Bits cereal.
Channeling the passionate riffage of the Black Crowes, Neil Young, and The Band, soulful Southern rockers Thomas Wynn and The Believers rattle amplifiers on March 3 behind their latest album, Brothers and Sisters. Finally, on April 7, guitar guru Les Sabler melts away stress and 10-gallon hats made of butter with spellbinding jazz arrangements, drawing from several internationally acclaimed albums and more than two decades of ultra-smooth guitar licks. These concerts take place on Keel and Curley’s general-admission deck.
Keel and Curley Winery
Starting from humble roots in his farmhouse kitchen, Keel and Curley’s founder, Joe Keel, started his winery in 2003 with just 10 gallons of homemade blueberry wine, made from the leftover crop of that year’s berries. Today, the company has grown to produce more than 20,000 cases of fruit-based ambrosias, including blueberry, blackberry, and seven fusion wines forged from a blend of fresh fruit and classic grape-based red and white varietals. After touring the winery's facilities to learn about the winemaking process, guests may sample vintages crafted from strawberries, key lime, and peaches while perched on tall wooden stools behind the bar area of the tasting room. They may also steal away to the outdoor wooden deck, which offers panoramic views of the green vineyards, tree-lined pond, and white gazebo, which plays host to wedding ceremonies and re-enactments of wedding ceremonies. The after-hours wine bar keeps guests entertained throughout the night with UnCorked events featuring live music, appetizers, and happy hour specials.
