When you think about states that offer great wines, you usually think Michigan, Ohio and Missouri. What you don’t think is Florida. But Florida has some nice wineries and wine shops that offer a great experience. Winey Wench is located inside the Florida Mall in Orlando. I’m from the Midwest and had never seen wine sold in a mall before, what made it better is that they serve wine slushes. I didn’t take pictures of the shop, but it’s nice. They also sell nice glasses, gift sets and other small gifts.
Name of Wine: La Montebello, Sangue Di Guida
Description: This red wine sangria is sweet, with a slight fizz that makes it light on the tongue. The best way to enjoy this is to have it very well chilled. It’s bubbly and refreshing. You can also take some diced fruit and make wine slushes with this.
Taste: Crisp grape
Pair With: Cakes, fruit desserts or spicy cheese.
Where Did I Get It: Winey Wench located in Orlando, Florida
Rating (1-5 with 5 being the highest): I’d give this wine a 4.5, it’s a good wine, I wasn’t expecting it to be as sweet as it was. I’d buy it again and pair it with some spicy meat and cheese.
