Regulations concerning alcohol are established by the State of Florida, not by our winery. Any alcohol, other than Summer Crush's, is STRICTLY PROHIBITED on the premises. Any guests found in violation will be asked to leave immediately.
Please know we do not encourage or discourage children at the winery. We have, however, learned from several customers who are parents of young children that they have been more relaxed and enjoyed our venue and amenities more when they were able to get away for an adult experience. We are an adult entertainment destination and are not designed for young children. So in the spirit of children's safety and the enjoyment of those around you, we have developed some rules and recommendations, which the parent(s) or guardian(s) is responsible for, if you choose to bring young well behaved children to our venue.

Please also remember that we are an agritourism establishment with the inherent WARNING that comes with being in the country:
Agritourism properties have inherent risks such as surface and subsurface conditions of the land, behavior of poisonous or dangerous insects or animals, and the ordinary dangers of structures and equipment. Visitors entering the property understand and accept these inherent risks.(Florida Statute 570.961 - Agritourism activity)
No Pets Allowed In Pavilion. If it rains please stay at the east end of pavilion during rain and be prepared to return to the outdoor patio seating when rain quits.
In association with National Dog Bite Prevention Week and leading insurance companies, including our own, we have adopted their lists of dog breeds they consider dangerous to NOT be allowed here at the winery, and according to their rules can result in denial of coverage. This list is drawn from research studies including the U.S. National Center for Injury Prevention and Control and include any with mixes of any of the below with any other less dangerous breeds: Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Presa Canarios, Chows Chows, Doberman Pinschers, Akitas, Wolf-hybrids, Mastiffs, Cane Corsos, Great Danes, Alaskan Malamutes, and Siberian Huskies.
Although these animals often have therapeutic benefits, they are not individually trained to perform specific tasks for their handlers. Under the ADA and Florida law, we are not required to allow emotional support animals in the tasting room or pavilion, only service animals (including psychiatric service dogs).
You are welcome to bring your own folding chairs to set out under the Oaks trees on event day. We do have seating under the pavilion and picnic tables on the patio, and on the dock and usually our seating is enough for everyone.
All our events are RAIN OR SHINE, as the pavilion has sides that can be pulled down and the band and food are all here Rain or Shine as well. Many customers like rain days because they feel like they have their own personal little party. We do reserve the right, however, to cancel an event or ask everyone to leave if there is dangerous weather conditions approaching.
Our facilities are all handicap accessible, including the tasting room, pavilion and restrooms.
If you have handicap needs for one of our concerts, please be sure to let us know when buying your tickets so we can accommodate, as seats are assigned for most concerts. For our free music events with open seating there is no need to inform us.
There are handicap parking spaces closest to the tasting room and over flow near the entrance for larger events.
