  • The Tasting Tours offers three flavorful holiday experiences during St. Augustine's Nights of Lights celebration, beginning on Saturday, November 20, 2021, and continuing nightly through January 31, 2022.

    Wine and Carriage Ride tours are a wonderful way to experience this world-renowned festival of lights in the Nation's Oldest City. Guests can experience the festival lights on the horse-drawn carriage and enjoy some excellent wine and great company. Two versions of the Wine and Carriage Ride tours are available each night — a group tour for up to 12 people or a private tour for two to four people. Both 45-minute rides require reservations and include VIP boarding, a complimentary bottle of wine (red or white) and souvenir wine glasses (one per guest).

    Rolling Cart Ride tours feature a costumed character leading the tour on an electric vehicle. This year, the Un-Merry Grinchmas Ride is a 45-minute fun experience geared toward the whole family. This tour does not include wine, but great holiday music and lots of Christmas cheer is available. The Un-Merry Grinchmas Ride can accommodate up to seven adult guests (10 guests of the same party).

    Please note: This is an open-air/outdoor experience and a group event. Face masks are to be used at the guest's discretion. Drivers are not required to wear face coverings.
