You've not lived until you've tasted watermelon wine — or orange, tangerine, mango or pineapple. This unusual business even stocks bubbly wines made from grapefruit and tangerine, and a creme sherry made from strawberries. With 28 different flavors, many based on Florida's specialty — fabulous seasonal produce and citrus fruits — this local business has carved an unusual niche for itself. Our favorite is a cranberry variety, which goes great during the holidays with roasted turkey. Or try some of the hundreds of other Florida-focused edibles for sale in the St. Petersburg shop, like Key lime cookies, mango butter, guava jelly and coconut patties.
