Eden Winery, operated by the Kiser family, is located in the tiny
town of Alva about 10 miles east of Fort Myers. In 1986, Eden Vineyards
became the southernmost federally licensed, bonded winery and vineyards
in the United States.
This is a great day trip out to "the country" from the Naples
or Fort Myers area. Taste the wines and explore the countryside.
Some of the wines available at the vineyard:
LAKE EMERALD - Fermented at cold temperatures
in French oak barrels to achieve the elegance and complexity
of a truly fine wine. Extremely
dry, with an underbody of ripe fruit. Very dry.
ALVA ROUGE - Mildred Kiser's spaghetti wine.
Created in the Beaujolais Nouveau style; fresh & fruity;
marvelous with pasta and light meat dishes; superb with roast
chicken. Medium dry.
ALVA WHITE - A marvelous wine to sip and enjoy
with friends. Crisp yet fruity. Excellent with seafood, pork & poultry.
CORAL BELL - Their version of the ever popular
California "Blush" but
not quite as sweet. Mouth-filling grape flavors with a
bright, clean finish. Lightly sweet.
EDEN STARS - Made from "starfruit" grown
in South Florida. Eden's tropical alternative to the California
Blush. Serve chilled
or as a complement to lite lunches, salads and picnics.
A perfect match to seafood, light meats and poultry. All-around
EDEN SPICE - A very special, very popular wine
just brimming with exotic flavors. Most people buy it "cause
it just tastes so good." Sweet.
The reception room at the Eden Winery is open every
day (except major holidays) from 11 AM until 4 PM for tasting
