This family run tropical fruit winery from St. Petersburg, Florida has been making wine from Florida produce for upwards of 13 years. With more than 37 varieties it's showcasing some truly unique flavors that are worth giving a try. The "Key Limen" Wine highlighted at last year's Food & Wine Festival was a light and refreshing glass of fruity sunshine that cleared the palate and made way for guest to keep tasting all the festival had to offer.

At the 20th Annual Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, Florida Orange Groves Winery will be showcasing their "Hot Sun Tomato Wine" and "Blueberry Blue."

How fun! Have you ever tried a vegetable wine before? We're told that the tomato wine is a "very smooth dry white wine with a slight tomato taste and a hint of peppers in the finish." Disney Chefs have picked it to pair with an exciting dish of "Shrimp and Stone Ground Grits with Andouille Sausage, fresh Zellwood Corn, Tomatoes and Cilantro" being featured at the Florida Fresh garden marketplace. Spring at Disney has just gotten so much more flavorful!
