I was able to taste some of the wines at the local grocery store a few years back.....My first and only visit was because they were selling beer....the wine is not good at all, at least not what I would consider trying again. I went into the bar and asked the bar tender about the beer offerings. I mentioned I did not want anything with a lot of hops. He stared blankly back and said nothing. Again I asked him if there were any lagers that were not overly hopped. He turned and ask another customer if he would like another, completely ignoring my question. It was 6pm on a weeknight and there were more employees than customers, so he was not busy, he was not interested. I got a bottle of one of their beers, which I paid 15$ for and left with it, as it was apparent to me I was not welcome. The beer was not bad but not worth the money. I was very underwhelmed with the experience, the place did not meet my expectations and I did not expect much based on the size and location. As soon as I entered the parking lot I could tell the placed was built on a tight budget, as the metal warehouse type building, clearly annunciated. If you decide to plan a visit to this .....place (not a winery by any ones definition), keep your expectations low and dont make a special trip. Check it out the way to someplace fun, or on your way home, because I dont think your going to want to stay long

I love this wine!!! I saw it at WalMart in Plant City and decided to try it. $10 a bottle is a bit steep for me, especially since most wine I try makes me sick. This wine is WONDERFUL. I cant believe it. I have drunk 7 or 8 bottles of this stuff and it is perfect. I am not a wine connoisseur, but I have drank a lot in my time (6 decades). My dad brewed it, and that was better than most. His beer was better, but that is another story. This Keel and Curley wine is delicious and totally enjoyable. I can drink a fifth and no headache, no acid stomach, just sweet aroma and fruit blossums. My taste has been German white wines, Liebfraumilche, Reisling, and Portuguese roses like Lancers, Mateus and Pombal. These new wines are an explosion of flavor. I like sweet wines and these are delicious. If you dont like sweet, the Dry Blueberry is Heaven. I have tried every one except the Key Lime, and it is next. Everyone in my family likes these wines, and they usually dont like wine. Sour grapes attitude.
Decided to stop and check it out on the drive back to Tampa from Orlando and was very disappointed.. When we entered the store/bar we were not greeted by anyone. It was a little confusing as to where to go for a tasting when you first walk in. There was a small chalkboard on the bar to the right that said $6 for a wine tasting but no one was behind that bar or the one that had beer behind it. The bar to the left was full with one bartender working who didnt try to help us at all. As the only empty seats were being "saved" my husband and I hung off to the side waiting for a seat to clear up or at least for the bartender to ask if we wanted to do a tasting, but she seemed like she could care less that we were there. After being completely ignored for ten minutes, we finally decided to just leave. I will be taking my $6 to my local liquor store where I know the clerk will be friendly and buy an entire bottle of better wine than anything I could have gotten there.

My wife and I were to be married here a few years back, but the Keel and Kurley wedding planner had made us several promises that they could not fulfill. As we were unaware, we put a deposit down and settled on the venue. A short time later, we were notified that she was let go and that we would not get much of what we were promised. I simply asked to be refunded our deposit, and pointed out that everything was so unorganized that we never even signed a contract (which was true). I had to speak directly to Joe Keel, who, with much venom, told me I would not be getting my money back and he would like to see me try to come and get it from him by any means possible. DO NOT support this greedy business.
This place is going downhill fast. Sure the wine is decent and the beer is good. But the way they handle their entertainment is ridiculous. Always double-booking acts that people want to come to see. You can probably blame the ever changing manager position and the incompetency of the owners for these fiascos. I mean, why do they change their managers around so often?? Not a good sign. These "double bookings" not only disrupt the livelihood of professional musicians, but the plans of friends and fans of the musicians that were to play there. Think about it, if they handle their business as they do relationships with their entertainers, this company will not be around long and that will be a shame..
I am in love with Keel & Curley! I love the fruit infused wines they have. They are pretty tasty and not your traditional wines. They now also have beer & ciders as well! I love the cider! They do a lot of fun events (blueberry festival, mud fun, etc.) On the weekends they have bands playing which is nice, especially on a nice evening when we can sit outside! Delicious wine & fun times!
This was a good spot to go to. If possible, take the tour. Very informational and lots of history to digest. Our guide was very helpful. We also had dinner at the restaurant. Now, its not your typical sit in restaurant, more like a cafeteria type of place. Very wonderful and the family enjoyed our experience there!
First time out here on our way to Tampa. We had a blast. Lots of fantastic ciders, beer, and wines. Every single thing we tried was great. Food left a little to be desired but we didnt go for that. The ladies and gentleman who were there were great.
Excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful and there was quite a selection to choose from. Even if youre not a wine drinker I recommend the blueberry sangria slushie. Its amazing.

Have stopped in wine shops all over and was shocked to see a charge for such bad wine would not recomend this place to anyone,better shops elsewhere in fl.
Went here in the afternoon for lunch. The food was not that great but the beers and ciders were delicious. I will definitely be coming back for more.
Fun way to spend a few hours. Could become a monthly thing. The wines would make great gifts for friends out of state.
Fantastic place to go out wit friends or even throw an event/fundraiser! I have done both and they were both amazing!

Great setting for a unique Florida experience. The people are great and the wine is excellent.
Went there with my friend. At the begining it didnt look like much, but it grows on you.
Excellent tour of the facilities and wine tasting afterward. And the wine is fantastic
If you like sweet wines, then this is the place for you. Pet friendly
