Solomon's Castle & Rosa Fiorelli Winery
Today we delve deep into the heart of Florida to find hidden treasures so unique, you have to see it to believe it! Our first stop is Solomon’s Castle in Ona, Florida. The castle was designed and built by the internationally known artist and sculptor, Howard Solomon. It houses his home and galleries. Enjoy a private guided tour of the castle and you might find Howard Solomon himself in his workshop or on the patio area, with his great sense of humor and puns. Mr. Solomon will treat you to lunch on the “Boat in the Moat” restaurant. The restaurant is run by Howard’s daughter and family who pride themselves on serving meals that are homemade, nutritious and prepared the old fashioned way! They promise a memorable, humorous and relaxing experience! Before leaving this one of a kind estate, enjoy the nature walk along the banks of the picturesque Horse Creek.
Our day would not be complete without stopping in at one of our local Florida Wineries and vineyards! A rare gem in Florida, Rosa Fiorelli Winery is located in the rolling hills of Eastern Manatee County. Enjoy a guided tour of the vineyard and wine making facility where you will learn about growing season, pruning and harvesting. You will also see how grapes are crushed, pressed, fermented and bottled. And last but not least, enjoy a very special wine tasting demonstration!
