I was on a recent vacation on Anna Maria Island. This was my first trip and I was not sure what to do. I stop by the Chamber of Commerce, I figured I could get some ideas from there. so after gathering some infomation and headed out to explore the Island I came accross this little cute shop. The gentleman that was there was very helpful, even offered a FREE wine tasting of the local wines. The wines were great, so great I bought a mixed case of wine. He also said that there was a new wine Candy Apple Red that I fell in love with. These wines by far are the best wines that I have had and I think I just might have found a new wine to start drinking. I can't wait to tell my family and frends that will be down the weekend.
Thomas was a great host to my wife and I and very knowledgeable about the wines they carry, which were all from Florida wineries, which interested us. We brought my parents and my sister and her husband as well. We purchased 8 bottles and will definately return next Thanksgiving when we visit the island next year.
We visited Anna Maria Island back in March and came across a beatufully laid out small shop that sold the most fantastic wines, sweets, holiday gifts, but a very classy establishment, not one for buckets and spades!The Service from Patty & Larry was exceptional, Larry was only too happy to let us sample various fruit wines, which i must say were suprising good wines! As a wine buff myself i certainly appreaciated the concept of 100% fruit based wines, and really liked every one that i tried!Patty was a sweet heart and gave us sweets to try whilst we were drinking, which again are fantastic.We spent a very lovely 30-45 minutes in their shop and was made to feel exceptional at home, I would certainly recomend a trip here near the start of your holiday so you can enjoy your wine and maybe take some home with you. I know we did!Right now they cannot ship abroad, which is a real pity as i would most definately order from them all the time. But all in all a truely unique concept and fantastic flavours! well worth 20 minutes of anyones time!Enjoy!
I loved the wines (complimentary tastings) and chocolates. The owner was very nice, but I didn't catch his name.
My husband and I came to visit the island from NY for two weeks. So, I got online to see what was all in the area. My husband and I both have a bit if a sweet tooth and decided to visit Sweet Peas. I must say our experience was very wonderful. We got to sample wines that were sold in the store all for free which was a shock. The wines were very pleasing to the taste, so much so we had case ship to our home in NY. The selection of chocolates were great si many choices we took a little of all the chocolates. This little gift shop is for sure a must visit when you visit Anna Maria Island.
Nice little shop, opened up to us after closing time. Nice selection of fruit wines.
Very pleasant gift shop with local wines available to taste! The lady owner is very friendly and has lots of info about the island and the wines are great too, especially the pinot noir. Well worth a browse.
We are sad to see this place is closed. I wish the owner well, he was very kind to us last year and we enjoyed our visit.
