Pairs Well With Life

April 13, 2016


Posted in: Shell Creek

“Fermentation may have been a greater discovery than fire” David Wallace once said. Never has there been truer words, except Carl Worner, who said “Who does not love beer, wine...and song remains a fool his whole life.”

Beer and wine are great accompaniments to conversation and music, and most important of all, food. All of which make for a great afternoon or evening out. Beer pairs so well with a light-hearted evening on a patio, taking in the beautiful Florida weather while you laugh with your friends and family about the trivial moments of the week. But wine; she’s a bit more subtle and mysterious. She pairs well with dinner and a lovely night with the one you love, basking in each other’s company and deep conversations about life. To summarize, beer and wine pair well with life. Enjoy a little more adventure by sampling some craft beverages.

Venture to these locations:

Gilded Grape Winery

The Gilded Grape Winery has an eclectic little tasting room full of treasures to keep your mind occupied while you sit and sip on some flavorful vino. The Gilded Grape is a “Do-It-Yourself” winery, helping people step-by-step to produce their own wines. It’s a great hobby to take up and a rewarding one at that. If that’s not really your thing, that’s okay. They have a wine bar offering samples and glasses of some flavorful, full bodied wines and snacks to accompany them. This place makes for a low-key, relaxed date night.

Fat Point Brewing

Fat Point Brewing is a one-of-a-kind brewery in Punta Gorda, Florida. They’re tasting room is open seven days week to be more accessible to visitors. Fat Point is one of Florida’s fastest growing breweries and they often host beer pairing events with some tasty treats. Try the Chorange Stout.

Nestled along the banks of Shell Creek, this resort is a 55-plus community that provides a relaxing retreat in Central Florida. We work hard to make your life easy.

We also have a dock on the creek perfect for casting a line or simply enjoying the view. While the alligators and snakes make the creek unsuitable for swimming, our heated pool and hot tub are open 24/7.
