During tastings at Tarpon Springs Castle Winery's European-style confines, guests rub elbows with the winemaker himself inside the winery's bonded vat room. After learning about the wine-making process and sampling a few of the winery's fine vintages, guests choose a take-home bottle and personalize it with a hand-applied label signed by the winemaker. A celebratory glass of their chosen wine accompanies guests on strolls through the botanical gardens and courtyard.

Tarpon Springs Castle Winery is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday–Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Tarpon Springs Castle Winery is closed Monday and Tuesday. Tarpon Springs Castle Winery recommends that purchasers make their reservations as soon as possible, as sessions can fill quickly. Please call only during the listed business hours.

Tarpon Springs Castle Winery

The joint vision of husband and wife team Joseph and Diana Marks, Tarpon Springs Castle Winery, nestled in the heart of Tarpon Springs' national historical district, transports visitors to Old-World Europe, where each bottle of wine is handcrafted, from the crush to the label. Modeled after an 1820 federal building to look 97 years old and conform with the historical district's regulations, the winery's New Orleans-style, private botanical garden and courtyard, fountains, and wrought-iron gazebo take visitors back in time, but then quickly send them forward again before they have time to un-invent electricity. Trips to the homey and spacious tasting room give visitors a chance to sip wines that range from a clean, fruity blush to a dry, oaked cabernet sauvignon. The winery also features a gift shop.

Customer Reviews

small place with a lot of character
Carol R. · March 6, 2014
After visiting many wineries in several different states, I was a little skeptical about visiting a winery in a building without a vineyard. I was pleasantly surprised! This was one of the best, most informative winery tours I have ever been on. The folks that own the place are delightful, and I will definitely go back again.
