The Royal Wine Limited – Island Grove Wine Co. @ Tavares Union Station
Sep 29 @ 4:30 pm – 5:45 pm
Our Wines (We will sample 5 of the wines in the list below, final list TBD)
Here at Island Grove we specialize in fine blueberry wines using the freshest blueberries from our own Florida plantations. Along the way we began making different wines and now several years later, we have a whole portfolio of fun, fresh and exciting wines.

Our family of wine consists of a few categories. We specialize in wine that is made from fruit – preferably our loved blueberry, as we have been growing them for over 30 years now.  Our Signature Berry Wines, our Fruit & Grape Blends, and our 100% Fruit Winesmake up our list – ranging from dry & sophisticated to sweet & flirty.

Island Grove Wine Company is a division of Island Grove Ag Products (IGAP), a major supplier of fresh organic and conventional blueberries harvested throughout Florida. Producing approximately 2 million pounds of fresh fruit per year, we were looking for an innovative way to use our quality berries that were not sold to the fresh market. In 2010, the Island Grove Wine Company was born, where we could use our fresh fruit to create exceptional fruit wine. Along with our skilled winemaker, Chase Marden, the team at Island Grove has grown the winery since then, with over 16 different wine offerings and more to come.

 Our main location is in the tiny town of beautiful Island Grove, in North Central Florida amidst the large oak trees and quiet country roads.Our newest location is just a few miles from Disney in Kissimmee, Florida, where every day is a celebration.

We are proud of our healthy, antioxidant-rich berries and the wonderful wines that we have created. We offer a full selection of sweet and dry, 100% fruit and fruit-infused grape wines that we hope you enjoy.

Cheers!

 Our Kinda Dry Blueberry wine is a medium-bodied, fruit forward wine of dark purple hue and generous mouthfeel.  Rich aromas of blueberries, dark red fruit and spice are followed by flavors of black cherries and blueberry jam that bring to mind a fine Merlot.  This 100% blueberry wine is fermented on its healthy skins for up to 30 days in controlled batches to extract the unique tannin structure of blueberries.  It is an excellent complement to any meal, and is especially delicious paired with grilled steaks and chops.  Best served at room temperature.

  

Our Sorta Sweet Blueberry wine is a light-bodied, fruit forward wine with enticing aromas and flavors of fresh blueberry pie.  This 100% blueberry wine is fermented on its healthy skins in batches to extract the unique tannin structure of blueberries.  Because this delicately sweet wine is easy to love, it is a crowd pleaser at casual gatherings with friends.  Try serving it with barbecued chicken and grilled fish, or paired with desserts.  Best served chilled to highlight its fresh fruit flavors.
 Sweet and exotic with its distinctive honeysuckle nose paired with fragrant blueberry aromas taken straight from our Island Grove blueberry plantations, our Blueberry Moscato is a perfect blend of 90% California Muscat Grape wine and 10% of our Sorta Sweet Blueberry wine.  This wine is a perfect poolside sipper and is guaranteed to liven up any occasion.  Best served chilled.

Sweet & luxurious Vidal ice style grape wine blended with our sweetest blueberries of the season.  Best served chilled.
 Full fruits and sweet blueberries will take you mentally to a tropical island, as you casually sip this light – bodied, semi – sweet, blend of fruity deliciousness.

  

 Our Crisp Green Apple is a clean, refreshing wine that combines Gewurztraminer grapes with the light, fruity aroma of green apples.  It has a distinctive fruit character married with a nice fruit-forward palate and medium body.  Sweet and crisp, the clean finish lingers with a touch of tropical fruit and citrus.  Best served chilled.
Fruit-forward, light in body with a crisp Chardonnay dry finish, our Backporch Peach will fill the room with the unmistakable scent of fresh peaches.  This wine pairs well with chicken and seafood and can be enjoyed before,during, or after dinner.  Best served chilled
 Our unique pomegranate and berry blend is a fruity and sweet, medium-bodied wine with a slight tang on the finish.  This extraordinary combination of Zinfandel grapes, mixed berries and pomegranate is delicious on its own, or served with rich holiday desserts.  Best served chilled.
Our Bold Blackberry Merlot is powerful and rich wine with warm berry aromas and intense fruity flavors of ripe blackberries.  Sweet and medium-bodied, this blackberry and Merlot blend is the perfect wine for picnics and casual gatherings.  Its soft silky tannins and long balanced finish will capture your attention with your first sip.  Best served chilled.

 Our Southern Strawberry wine is a fruity sweet blend of Riesling grapes and the essence of fresh strawberries.  This light-bodied wine will make you sit up and take notice.  Clean and pleasant, its beautiful blush color, fruity aromas and hint of sweetness make this the perfect wine for any outdoor occasion.  Best served chilled.

 Vine – ripened raspberries and rich Zinfandel grapes provide this wine with its delightful fruity aroma.  Perfect in balance with remarkable drinkability, this light – bodied semi – sweet wine is delicate and inviting.  It’s perfect for casual entertaining and pairs beautifully with fruit desserts.  Best served chilled.

 Sweet and exotic with its distinctive honeysuckle nose paired with fragrant blueberry aromas taken straight from our Island Grove blueberry plantations, our Blueberry Moscato is a perfect blend of 90% California Muscat Grape wine and 10% of our Sorta Sweet Blueberry wine.  This wine is a perfect poolside sipper and is guaranteed to liven up any occasion.  Best served chilled.

 Sweet & luxurious Vidal ice style grape wine blended with our sweetest blueberries of the season.  Best served chilled.

  

 This is a medium – bodied wine made 100% from mouthwatering blackberry fruit.  Drier in taste than our “Black & Blue” wine, with subtle hints of charred oak and blackberries, this wine is a favorite among “cab” drinkers.

 Our Black & Blue wine offers the smooth taste of two flavorful fruits.  This semi-dry, heavy bodied wine, is a mix of 85% blackberries and 15% blueberries, a match made in heaven for those that enjoy a dry, fruit forward wine.
