Vineyards are few and far between in South Florida, but there’s one nestled in Fort Pierce that attracts a loyal following year-round: Summer Crush Vineyard & Winery. The winery came to fruition in 2012 after owner Gary Roberts discovered a love for muscadine wine—the oldest wine in the New World that was first recorded in Fort Caroline near Jacksonville in 1565—and decided to build a vineyard on his land. The 10-acre “sun and fun boutique winery” blends Roberts’ love of history and surfing (his prolific collection of classic surfboards and memorabilia is displayed in the tasting room and pavilion) with Noble, Carlos, and Doreen varieties of muscadine grapes to create flavorful wines. The grapes are harvested and crushed in the summer, hence the name behind the vineyard.
