Sea Oats Motel digs romance.

Florida Wine

Smooth and aromatic muscadine wines evoke memories of sleepy afternoons in the Deep South and are a specialty produced here like nowhere else on earth.

Fruit wines (citrus, tropical and berry) are enjoying a breakthrough in quality wine production, and consumers everywhere are not only filling their glasses but bringing Florida wines into the kitchen.

When talking about true Florida’s finest, tropical fruit wines have always been the favorite.

Florida wine flavors and styles cover the range of very sweet to bone dry, so they can be successfully used in any application. Try a Florida port wine for a sweet and robust sauce with beef or a sparkling tangerine wine in a tart and tangy marinade for seafood!

The Sea Oats Motel’s fully equipped kitchens give our guests the opportunity to experiment with fresh local Florida products, from the comfort and privacy of their suite, steps from the remarkably white shoreline.

Visiting a winery or vineyard can be a fascinating experience for the whole family. They are scattered throughout the state of Florida, with some special ones only minutes from the Motel.  A perfect afternoon outing for the whole family!

After your visit, be sure to bring back some of that phenomenal wine to Sea Oats, to experiment with one of our favorite marinades.
