WINE AND FLOWERS

While Wine and Orchids are the perfect gift, they are also the perfect TRIP! Board your deluxe transportation at your clubhouse or other convenient pick up location. Meet and greet your onboard Tour Concierge who will accompany you for the entire trip – A FloridaTours.com exclusive feature. We will travel first to the famous Schnebly Winery in Redlands.

.
Owners Peter and Denisse Schnebly have been living and working in South Florida for over 25 years. They are dedicated to improving South Florida and especially the Redland’s area.  In the spring of 2003 the couple invited Peter’s friend Bill Wagner, the owner of Wagner Winery (Lodi, New York), for a visit. Wagner Winery was the second small farm winery founded in 1977 when New York State changed the laws permitting wineries with production of up to 250,000 gallons of wine.  During the visit, Wagner inspired Peter and Denisse to start a winery with wine made from exotic fruit.
.
In the fall of 2003, the Schnebly’s began experimenting with the fruits, making wine out of their garage in the evenings. Friendship played a strong force once again when Doug Knapp, a friend for more than 2 decades and the former owner of Knapp Winery (Finger Lakes of New York) provided guidance in the process of making wine from tropical fruits.
.
Today the winery is a popular destination for locals and tourist where wines are made from only the finest fruit. Each mango, lychee, guava, passion fruit and Carambola is personally picked for fermentation.
.
After a chance to sample and purchase some of the local products we are off to RF Orchids for a fascinating conclusion to our day.
.
R.F. Orchids opened its doors in the fall of 1970 on a portion of Fred and Louise Fuchs’ 1921 homestead property. Fred, Sr. and Louise ran their nursery together until 1969. In 1970 grandson Bob graduated from Florida State University, and after graduation returned to Homestead and began a massive cleanup and renovation of the nursery. He brought in plants from his own collection and R.F. Orchids opened for business in December of that year.
.

1984 brought the attention of orchid growers around the world to Miami, for the 11th World Orchid Conference and its prestigious orchid show. Much of that attention focused on R.F. Orchids when their plants won 12 individual medals and the exhibit won a Best In Class trophy. And most important of all, R.F. Orchids’ plant Vanda Deva ‘Robert’ was honored as the Grand Champion. This award catapulted RF into international recognition and acceptance as one of the leading vandaceous orchid firms in the world. R.F. Orchids celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2010. In the years since the nursery’s founding, it has won more American Orchid Society awards than any other nursery or individual grower.
