The venue offers three inviting locations that are perfect for your wedding ceremony: the Courtyard with its existing paved

"runner” leads up to a beautiful trickling waterfall, the Grand Tiki, and the Waterfall Tiki, are cozier spaces that overlook

the waterfall on to rock below. Each setting offers breathtaking views of the winery. In addition, the winery can accommodate

receptions both large and small. The 5,000 square-foot Grand Tiki serves the most guests, while the 900 square-foot Waterfall

Tiki, or the Grand Tasting Room are ideal venues for more intimate gatherings. Consider a weekend winery tour or tasting for your

The Winery, which began in 2003 by owners Peter and Denisse Schnebly as a means to improve South Florida and begin an

agro-tourism business, is known mainly for its dessert wines. Their wine is derived from mango, guava, passion fruit, and lychee,

all grown on the farm.

There is even an avocado and coconut infused wine called Cat 2 Hurricane White named after -- you

guessed it, dramatic Florida precipitation. Conversely, Cat 3 Red is similar to red sangria. What is unique is that each mango, lychee,

guava, passion fruit and Carambola that goes into these wines is personally hand-picked for fermentation. This reflects Schneblys'

sustainable farming practices.

In addition, the Schnebleys recently embarked on a microbrewery on the property -- a first for Miami. Described as high flavored beer with

character, the brew infuse Florida flavors into to its craft beer aptly named Gator Tail Ale, Big Rod and Shark Attack. Shark Attack, for example, is

a light-to-medium bodied wheat ale with the aroma of lemon citrus and a smooth mango finish. The Speedway IPA, however, is straight

up beer with no fruit in the mix for the traditional beer lover. Visit the distillery for a unique adventure with its four 30 barrel fermentors that

contain up to 3,720 gallons of beer.
