Ridgeback Winery
Ridgeback Winery is not a vineyard; however, we use grape juice and juice concentrates from both domestic and foreign vineyards. Wines at Ridgeback Winery are made under a different concept than that of traditional wineries. Our winery follows a pre-designed process that is performed as the owners work through the entire wine making cycle, on small different wine batches of the same varietals. We also produce small quantities of Reserve Wines that under - go a second malolatic fermentation that results in a smoother taste.
Wines produced by the Ridgeback Winery are only available at its tasting room.
Tasting Room Hours:  Wednesday – Sunday, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.
The wines offered by the Ridgeback Winery are well balanced, dry, medium priced and hand crafted in small batches. Our wines are made under a different concept than that of traditional wineries. 
The winery will open at 9 am on the designated day. You will enter by the door in the hallway across from Café Attuare, bottles and boxes in hand. A tasting sample will be offered while we sanitize your bottles with a solution of citric acid and potassium metabisulfite. Then, with your assistance,  your bottles will be filled and corked. A table will be set up where you can apply the pre-printed labels to your bottles. You will then proceed in the regular tasting area, pay for your filled bottles, and be on your way knowing that you have taken part in a history-making occasion for Lake.
We are recently notified that six of their wines were awarded medals at the Florida State Fair International wine competition held in Tampa in February. At the competition, the Ridgeback Winery took home a silver for its Cayuga Zanta Wine and bronze medals for two other Zanta wines, the Pinot Noir and Seyval.
The Breed. The Rhodesian Ridgeback, named for its distinguished marking down the back, is one of only a few breeds of dogs that originate in Africa. A sturdy breed, the Rhodesian Ridgeback was used in packs to hunt lions and hold them at bay until the lion was killed by the hunter. The pictures of the two Ridgebacks, Rosco and Zanta, are on every bottle of wine produced by the winery and you can carry home with you wines such as Smelly Sneaker, Puppy Love, Lion Hunter, or Chewy Wine. 
If you are interested in making your own wines, the Ridgeback winery has available all the equipment and concentrates you would need to either begin or continue your personal wine-making hobby.
The satisfaction of the customer is our main goal!
