Wine & Distilleries
Good conversation and a glass of wine is the perfect way to start or end an evening. With several wine bars in the area, you’re sure to find a welcoming atmosphere that encourages you to relax and appreciate your surroundings. There's even a winery in the area which not only produces signature vintages, they offer visitors the opportunity to craft their own, as well. Time for some tastings!
Speaking of producing sensational things (and tastings), Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach also boasts a “Cane to Bottle” rum distillery. Using locally sourced Florida molasses, this family-run small-batch craft distillery produces an entire line of award-winning flavored rum and a clear corn moonshine whiskey that’s unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Complimentary tours are offered 6 days a week and can be booked online.
