How the Book is Organized
I’ve arranged the Northwest Florida Wine Tour to cover the seven wineries in Northwest Florida as either a loop tour or a line, beginning with the western‐most winery in Okaloosa County, which is also the state’s newest winery. If you do the tour as a loop, you can start anywhere and end up back where you started. If you take the linear approach, you’ll begin with Florida’s western‐most winery and travel east, south, north, and east again, where you end up at Florida’s only certified organic winery. From here, if you choose, you can continue onto the Florida peninsula and visit all 33 wineries.
Of the seven wineries, Monticello is the only one in the Eastern Time Zone and that is noted on the opening times. All of the others are in the Central Time Zone. If you did the tour all at once it would take you a weekend to visit all seven wineries, which I think is a great way to spend two or three days, but you can also split the tour into sections and complete it in several trips.
So if you're ready to start Exploring the vineyards and wineries of Northwest Florida and enjoy a Florida wine tasting,pick up a copy of the book and start traveling. We'll see you there.
