Dakotah Winery
Dakotah Winery is a family business operated by Rob Rittgers and his father Max Rittgers.
At the heart of the Dakotah Winery is the vineyard. The grapes grown in Dakotah's vineyard are muscadine, a native Florida grape that was first used for wine-making by the French Huguenots and early Spanish settlers nearly 100 years before wine was made in California.
A visit to Dakotah provides not only an opportunity to buy Florida wine but an opportunity for self-guided innovational wellness walks through the grounds while viewing the grapes, sheep, geese, wood ducks, koi fish, and other species.
The authentic antiques found throughout the building and grounds provide decor and suggest a link to South Dakota origins. Among them is a collection of mule-drawn plows, all over one hundred years old, which is of special interest to our senior visitors.
The roof of the wine cellar serves as a patio, and it offers a vantage point for observing the pond and the bird life. A sun shade covering the area is adorned with two varieties of spring and fall blooming wisteria, both of which are beautiful purple. This wisteria arbor is included in the state of Florida's recent brochure that lists the state's botanical wonders.
The antique windmills offer more than decoration. One of them pumps water for the winery pond. A solar array on another provides light to illuminate the front of the winery. Its is powered by a distant star.
Your observations will reveal that the winery is a therapy leader for both the heart and the mind and a conservation leader for both the soil and the spirit.
Dakotah wines for your sipping pleasure:
- Chardonnay. A dry white wine with a bright, clean taste.
- Merlot. A dry red wine cellared and bottled at Dakotah
- Cabernet Sauvignon. This favorite dry red wine is the newest addition to Dakotah's selections.
- Carlos. A slightly sweet white wine with an incredible grapey taste. Loved by Southern people who enjoy it with grouper or chicken. Made from Muscadine grapes.
- Blush. Another slightly sweet wine that combines the Carlos and Noble grape. Great with sandwiches and salads.
- Noble. A Muscadine grape semi-sweet red wine. Goes well with Italian or Spanish cuisine.
- Blueberry. From Florida blueberries, it's a good dessert wine and is delicisous as a topping for ice cream or cheese cake.
- Port. A smooth, hearty red dessert wine. Has a higher alcoholic content and is sweet but very gentle.
- Cream sherry. An amber full-flavored dessert wine with a slight almond taste that is almost buttery.
- Muscadine juice. This non-alcoholic drink is bottled fresh from the vine with no sugar added. It's refreshing taste reminds one of the actual grape it comes from.
