Compliment your succulent shrimp with flavorful wine tastings provided by South Florida's favorite wineries.

Summer Crush Vineyard & Winery is a small, family owned sun & fun boutique winery started by owner/vintner Gary Roberts. It is the result of the blending of Gary's love of history, surfing, and native muscadine and fruit wines. Gary discovered that muscadine wine is the oldest wine in the new world, first recorded being made at Fort Caroline, Fl. (near today’s Jacksonville) in 1565 by the pirate captain John Hawkins, cousin of Sir Frances Drake. Gary also learned that in the later 1500's Franciscan monks at Mission San Luis, near todays Tallahassee, planted the New World's first vineyard, further encouraging him to follow this storied history with the creation of his own Sunshine State vineyard and winery.
