Sons & Daughters Farm and Winery
Out in Lake Worth is a vineyard that truly embodies Florida’s spirit. Made out of the ruins of a commercial nursery after a series of storms, the staff at this vineyard recognized the land’s ability to make itself fertile again by gaining nutrients from the land and growing the fruits that were naturally inclined to grow in it. Growing produce that grows exponentially in Florida’s climate, such as hibiscus, pumpkin, and citrus, leads to bold flavored wines with an unmistakable flavor profile. The staff here is more than excited to show off their process, and is constantly inviting guests over to enjoy live music by local artists and some of their wines and kombuchas over an open campfire. Food trucks have also been known to make an appearance on occasion, as well.
St. Andrews Country Club
Exclusively for the members of this well-established country club, the culinary team at St. Andrews works tirelessly to pair wines with a variety of foods ranging from cheeses to chocolates in order to draw out the full flavor profiles of the vinos. Whether part of a standalone series or as a part of the Epicurious series of events, guests can expect to be treated to a whole array of wines from across the globe, ranging from reds made in Italy to whites from California. Even if there isn’t a tasting event going on, members can enjoy the extensive list of wines featured at the Club’s onsite restaurants. The Club’s commitment to wine is so prominent, that in 2017 they received the Merit Award from the Club Managers Association of America International Wine Society for creating and updating one of the finest wine menus, along with the running of wine programs for Club members.
Far more than a luxury destination, St. Andrews Country Club is a cultural experience; full of ways to enjoy what life has to offer. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy playing across the golf course, or getting training from a tennis professional on one of the multiple Har-Tru courts that St. Andrews owns. Gourmands can indulge themselves on the high-quality ingredients featured at the Club’s restaurants (with some of the herbs coming from the on-site chefs’ garden), or meet with friends and family at Club and private events to enjoy good food, good times, and great wine.
You’ll find far more than exceptional facilities and social programming at St. Andrews. You will uncover a peaceful, private and unpretentious lifestyle that is beaming with comfort and elegance. Its distinctions include a “Distinguished Club of the World” and a “Top Ten Healthiest Clubs in America,” and its world-class amenities make life a permanent vacation.
