Wine Tasting in Lakeside

Select Local Merchants

  • 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.

  • The Corkscrew Winery
    Amid hanging lamps, rustic wooden tables, and exposed brick walls decorated with antique corkscrews, patrons of The Corkscrew Winery learn what it takes to make their own wine. Owners Kelli and Joe Carvalho walk participants through the process, in which students pick from hundreds of varietals before fermenting their concoction, which yields up to 30 bottles of anything from riesling to malbec. Clients can customize their labels to produce a memorable gift, a house blend for a restaurant, or a special wine for a wedding reception.

  • Cork&Olive Lake Mary
    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.

  • PRP Wine International Palm Beach
    Traveling to homes across Illinois, California, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, and Wisconsin with an array of hand-selected bottles in tow, the knowledgable consultants of PRP Wine International save their customers the time they would spend searching stores and the jail time that could result from trespassing on private vineyards. The staffers of this private wine company spend almost every day of the year unearthing the best bottles across the United States, Europe, Australia, South America, and South Africa, and then present their selections to eager palates at homes, private clubs, and hotel suites during private tastings and special events. As the wine spills forth into glasses, the consultants impart background information on the wines, share pairing ideas, and encourage guests to ask any questions they might be embarrassed to ask at restaurants, such as, “How do you pronounce pinot noir?” or “Where is the giant laser that transforms the grapes into wine?” As the evening progresses, conversations will also cover grape varieties and facts about specific growing regions.

  • 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.
