Exotic tropical fruit wines and beer are for sale at Schnebly Redland's Winery, featuring such local delicacies as mango, guava, lychee, passion fruit and carambola. The tasting room is open daily, so stop in and be amazed at these treasures of the Redland region.
Schnebly Redland's Winery is the first winery in Miami-Dade County and holds the distinction of being the Southernmost winery in the United States. No tour of the Redland area is complete without a stop here.
Peter and Denisse Schnebly set a goal for themselves of starting an agro-toursim business based from their farms in the Redlands of South Florida. Their vision was to provide tours to visitors of their 96 acres of exotic tropical fruits; such as carambola, mango, lychee, guava, passion fruit, and gourmet vegetables that they grow and market fresh through their produce company Fresh King, Inc.
In the spring of 2003 the couple invited Peter's friend, Bill Wagner the owner of Wagner Winery (Lodi, New York) for a visit. Wagner Winery was the second small farm winery founded in 1977 when New York state changed the laws permitting wineries with production of up to 250,000 gallons of wine. During the visit Wagner inspired the Schnebly's to start a winery with wine made from exotic fruit. This provided the answer to their longing for agro tourism.
In the fall of 2003, the Schnebly's began experimenting with the fruits, making wine out of their garage in the evenings. Friendship played a strong force once again when Doug Knapp, a friend for more than 2 decades and the former owner of Knapp Winery (Finger Lakes of New York) provided guidance in the process of making wine from tropical fruits.
Sustainable farming is a top priority as Schnebly wines are made from only the finest fruit. Each mango, lychee, guava, passion fruit, and carambola is personally picked for fermentation.
The tasting room is impressive. It features a strikingly beautiful tasting bar, shadowed by a tree-like glass rack. As you enter the grandiose double doors of Schnebly’s winery, the lush courtyard and natural coral waterfalls provide a great backdrop for an afternoon wine tasting. It's a beautiful place to enjoy tropical wines and the natural wonder of South Florida.
