What You'll Get
Having a partner turns bouncing a ball into a tennis match, a monologue into a conversation, and a bear attack into a slightly longer bear attack. Experience the power of pairing with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a sparkling-wine-tasting package for two at Schnebly Redland’s Winery in Homestead (up to a $54.90 total value). The tasting package includes:
- Admission for two to a Friday-night event (a $10 value each)
- Two tasting flights of your choice (a $9.95 value each); choose any two of the following:
- An ultimate tasting, which includes five Schnebly wines and a complimentary glass
- A dolce and sparkling tasting, which includes five dessert and sparkling wines and a complimentary flute
- $15 toward any wine purchase<p>
The oenophiles at Schnebly Redland’s Winery craft creative beers and eccentric wines made from mangoes, avocados, and other nongrape fruits, helping the bottling establishment to garner a 2008 Best Winery award from the Miami New Times. Amid Schnebly’s enchanting tropical escape, complete with a coral water fountain, tiki huts, and lush tropical plants, vintage sippers soar through still and sparkling wine flights that lavish taste buds with five fermented masterpieces. Sparkling lychee wine ($29.95 for a bottle) combines citrusy pear and lychee with a tropical nose, and mango dolce ($35 for a bottle) balances sweet and smooth like a toddler singing “Let’s Stay Together.” The ultimate tasting allows palates to sample avocado ($15.95 for a bottle), star fruit ($13.95 for a bottle), and coconut and lemongrass ($18.95 for a bottle) vintages. Once tongues have completed the taste-testing portion, they can decide which wines are their favorites and which receive the Miss Congeniality award.
After the tasting, guests select a favorite sip to accompany them to a Friday Night at the Winery party, a live-music and dancing extravaganza. Past entertainment has included Iko Iko, Xpresso, and bluegrass groups distinguished by their danceable songs and innovatively landscaped lawns. Most concerts start at 6 p.m., and guests can bring a picnic dinner to fuel up for a night of cutting tiki rugs.

About Schnebly Winery & Miami Brewing Company
Though they had long been interested in starting an agro-tourism business on their 30-acre farm, Peter and Dennise Schnebly might never have considered a winery were it not for a fortuitous visit from Bill Wagner of Wagner Winery in Lodi, New York. During his stay, Wagner took a look around at the farm's exotic fruits and vegetables and planted an idea in the couples' imaginations: why not draw upon their harvest to create exotic wines? The idea took root, and the couple soon began to experiment in their garage, crafting wines with the help of their friends while sticking to their shared belief in sustainable practices. Five years later, these eccentric wines—infused with mangoes, avocados, and other nongrape fruits—helped their newly opened winery garner a 2008 Best Winery award from the Miami New Times.
Many of the winery's varietals have gone on to win accolades since then, and tours and tastings allow visitors to join in the celebration and gain insights to the process of winemaking in a tropical environment complete with a coral water fountain, tiki huts, and lush plants. Table wines include Guava, a rose wine, balanced with integrated aromas of plum, black berry, blue berry and exotic herbs. Wines pour freely during weekend events that feature live concerts and karaoke. Past entertainment included Bryan Gonzalez, TreeHause Band, La Linea, and bluegrass groups distinguished by their danceable songs and innovatively landscaped lawns.
While their main focus has always been wine, the Schneblys have branched out to craft brews and culinary experimentation. In 2011, they opened Miami Brewing Company, the first commercial brewery in Miami. They take their inspiration from Miami flavors, incorporating different fruits and spices in their beers. In late 2014, the team started The Redlander Restaurant at Schnebly Winery, which offers farm-to-table dining for lunch, dinner, and events focusing on local ingredients and fresh flavors.
