East Coast Winery | Wine Tasting in Melbourne, FL

Thank you for sharing!

Florida has some really great wines! Though Florida doesn’t have a huge abundance of wineries around, the ones that do produce wine are spectacular. The Melbourne, Florida area does not have a wine producing winery, but they do have the East Coast Winery. East Coast Winery is a small wine shop in the downtown Melbourne area.

My husband and I love tasting new wines and like trying them before buying. Being frugal means that I try before I buy. Who really wants to spend $20+ on a bottle of wine only to discover that it is not to their liking?

Though the Melbourne Beach Market, close to Tuckaway Shores Resort, has 5 isles of wine to choose from, I can’t try any of them and their selection of local wines is not that big. My husband and I went on a hunt to find a place to try some local wines. The East Coast Winery was perfect!

It is a small shop, but very friendly. The owner was very knowledgeable with the wines that they sell. I liked learning about the different wines and how they are processed here in Florida. My husband and I picked out a few wines to try and the owner guided us through the tasting process. I do like that they offered water rinses and pretzels so you could fully cleanse your palette before the next wine.east-coast-winery-tasting

The East Coast Winery carries wine from all over Florida. My favorite Florida Gulf Side wines were available, but I was looking for something from the Florida East Coast.

Royal Manor Mango Wine

Our pick was the Royal Manor Mango Wine. It was sweet and a tiny bit peppery, just perfect. The winery is located in Gainesville, FL which isn’t on the east coast but isn’t too close to me either. I see another staycation in my future to visit the Royal Manor!
