Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards opened its doors in February 1989 in Clermont , Florida and sits on a 127-acre estate in gently rolling countryside some 25 miles west of downtown Orlando . This area was once the center of the State's grape industry. After years of phenomenal growth, Lakeridge ranks as Florida 's largest premium winery, and remains a pioneer in the development of table and sparkling wines from muscadine and hybrid grapes. Vintage-dated varietals from hybrids such as Stover and Blanc Du Bois are produced and marketed along with blended and sparkling wines from native Muscadine grapes.

More than 110,000 people are expected to visit the winery annually, enjoying its extensive tasting room, festivals and gift shop. With an overall production of over 80,000 cases, that’s over 960,000 bottles. Lakeridge Wines are sold under the Lakeridge and Lakeridge Reserve brands wines at the winery and at major supermarkets and wine shops throughout Florida . Together, these labels have won more than 800 awards for excellence in winemaking.

  • My friends and I tried this on a whim and found it a First Rate Tour & Tasting. The grounds are small and the tour informative. The tasting was phenomenal. The only thing that would make this better i...  more »

  • We came here once before for a wine tasting and I must say every wine is delicious! Only problem is which wines to buy. There are people who come here and leave with carts loaded with wine boxes. Last time Doug did our wine tasting and we really enjoyed talking to him! We decided to come back and asked for Doug and he wasn’t there which left us a bit disappointed. We bought 6 bottles this time not too much so it would give us a reason to visit again soon. Since it’s a 3 and half hour drive for us it’s well worth the trip. There are picnic tables out back and we always enjoy the view and drink a bottle of wine and bring a bunch of snacks! Best of all the wine tasting is free and I love that. We had stopped at island grove and the tasting was 14.00 too steep! We love this winery and can’t wait until our next visit and hopefully get to see Doug next time! If you go be sure to ask for Doug and his bbq recipe!
  • Always have a wonderful time here, live approximately 45 min away and try to come out a few times a year. The tour is always interesting and always learn something new each time I visit. The staff is always friendly, helpful, informative, and knowledgeable! Definitely worth a visit, and the free wine tasting of their many wines is a must! After the tasting, I love buying some cheese and wine at the shop to share with my boyfriend on the patio overlooking the vineyard! Makes for a wonderful afternoon! Thank you Lakeridge!
  • Went looking for a rare find of wine and left with case that they make on site. We also learned that if you bring the empty bottles back you have a discount for recycling. Great environment for rest and relaxation. We will return with no regrets. Prices and the knowledge that they have are great. Jug
  • First time visiting Lakeridge Winery, and like the video in the tour says you'll learn more here than any other tour. I thought I knew what wine I liked but was not drinking wine correctly. I think I like most all wine now. Learned about cleansing the pallet, this made the wine so much better. Our tour guide Cody was the best. I recommend you ask for Cody as your guide if you can. The tasting and tour are free. The gift is very reasonable for all wine drinkers. So head over to Lakeridge Winery tell them Blake sent you.
  • This place is the best. They have the best old school Hospitality, customer service, and their wine is remarkable. I recommend trying their wine tour it is fun and really teaches you a lot about wine. They have festivals that go on throughout the year, they can be a little pricey, however they are great. And last but not least their store has everything you need to get started on your wine game. Must visit this place I recommend this place to everyone.
