Island Grove Wine Company is a division of Island Grove Ag Products (IGAP), a major supplier of fresh organic & conventional blueberries harvested throughout Florida. Producing over 2 million pounds of fresh fruit a year, IGAP founders were looking for a new way to use their grade "B" fruit. While all the grade "A" fruit goes to the fresh market, the grade "B" fruit goes to making value-added products like juice, jams, and other bakery items.
After years of searching for the best possible way to use the fruit, a premier wine maker, Chase Marden, entered the scene. His extraordinary wine making reputation in Florida preceded him and he became a perfect fit for the IGAP family. A keen eye for detail and commitment to quality represent perfectly the Island Grove theme and the Island Grove Wine Company was born.
We are proud of our healthy, antioxidant rich wines that have the same wonderful health benefits as fresh blueberries. Our family of wines are delightful and fruitful, with selections for the sweeter wine lovers and the dryer ones alike. We make two 100% Blueberry Wines: Kinda Dry and Sorta Sweet, as well as many other delicious fruit and grape wine blends such as our Southern Strawberry Riesling and Rustic Raspberry Zinfandel. From our clean Crisp Green Apple Gewurztraminer to our Bold Blackberry Merlot, our wines excite and portray an excellence that you can taste and enjoy.
We are located in beautiful Island Grove, Florida amidst the large oak trees and quiet country roads. Our winery has a state of the art 10,000 sq. ft. facility located right on the farm, guarantying the consistent quality Island Grove Ag Products stands for. With free tours and tastings, come on out and experience all we have to offer. Open Monday-Friday 10-4, then on Saturdays with reservations needed.
