About

Schnebly Redland's Winery & Brewery is an unexpected and hidden retreat. See the mix of sun dresses, sandals and black leather jackets merely added to the mix of festivities and unity over spirited drinks. The most challenging part of the whole experience is trying to leave without buying a single bottle; not just for the flavor of the wine, but also to keep a memento of the place. It's perfect for hosting group events/birthdays, but also good for adventurous visitors wanting to try something wonderful. We make wines and beers crafted from tropical fruits unique to South Florida.

History

The Schnebly Redland's Winery & Brewery team is a constantly growing and hard working family.

The owners Peter and Denisse Schnebly have been living and working in South Florida for over 25 years. They are dedicated to improving South Florida and especially the Redland's area. Peter and Denisse Schnebly set a goal for themselves of starting an agro-tourism business based from their farms in the Redlands of South Florida. Their vision was to provide tours to visitors of their 96 acres of exotic tropical fruits and gourmet vegetables that they grow and market fresh through their produce company Fresh King, Inc.

In the spring of 2003 the couple invited Peter’s friend, Bill Wagner the owner of Wagner Winery (Lodi, New York) for a visit. Wagner Winery was the second small farm winery founded in 1977 when New York State changed the laws permitting wineries with production of up to 250,000 gallons of wine. During the visit Wagner inspired the Schnebly’s to start a winery with wine made from exotic fruit. This provided the answer to their longing for agro-tourism.

In the fall of 2003, the Schnebly’s began experimenting with the fruits, making wine out of their garage in the evenings. Friendship played a strong force once again when Doug Knapp, a friend for more than 2 decades and the former owner of Knapp Winery (Finger Lakes of New York) provided guidance in the process of making wine from tropical fruits.

Thus a winery was born.

Practices & Techniques

Sustainable farming became a top priority as Schnebly wines are made from only the finest fruit. Each mango, lychee, guava, passion fruit and Carambola is personally picked for fermentation.
