Gary's wife Susan, and sons, Bud and Allen encouraged the pursuit of the winery and the winery opened in July 2012. Summer Crush Vineyard & Winery grows the Noble, Carlos, and Doreen varieties of muscadine grapes for their wines in their 10 acre vineyard and also makes a few specialty fruit wines.
Florida is truly a place with a Crush on Summer and Summer Crush blends the rich history of muscadine wine with the tropical Florida lifestyle to create a memorable winery experience like no other.
(John Anderson)was amazing. He absolutely rocked it. The audience went wild. Kudos to Gary and gang, and of course Mr Anderson! You all did a really fantastic job and love the venue. My wife and I also enjoyed the "Meet and Greet". Big treat for my wife.
