OOo the wine:-D
Today being just a nice relaxing day in Orlando, we decided (after sleeping in til 10), to go to a local winery that I had found online, the Lakridge Winery. Wicked cool place:-D The tours included a short movie on growing the grapes, and then we proceeded from there to see where they ferment it and bottle it. They have steel tanks that were just enormous! According to the tour guide, each one holds just over 5000 pounds! That's a lot of wine! They were bottling up a red while we were there, and watching the system was just neat. This being February, obviously the grapes were not growing, but you could look out over the vineyard and see what it would look like.
