History and Stripes

After living in the sunshine state for almost seven years, I had only been to St. Augustine once and that was a few months ago for a friend's birthday when I was only a few weeks post partum. I couldn't wait to go back with H and explore some more, as well as go on tours at the winery and the distillery.


One of our first stops was at the St. Augustine Distillery, where we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Ice Plant Bar which is in the same building as the distillery. I couldn't get over the beautiful space, which is in an old industrial building from the 1920's that used to make ice for ice boxes before refrigerators became the next big thing.I love how they kept the look of the prohibition era even down to the employees' uniforms.

We also visited San Sebastian Winery which is only a street over from the distillery for another tour and tasting. My favorites of course were the bubbles and blush wine appropriately named Blanc de Fleur and Rosa. They both of course came home with us in bottles. 










After the winery and distillery tours and tastings, we ventured into town for some site seeing and popped into a few restaurants and shops. We stopped at Taberna del Caballo, and I had to try the chocolate brownie trifle. It was absolutely delish!





We capped the day off with driving over the bridge to St. Augustine Beach, and grabbing some drinks at Salt Life Food Shack. The views of the beach from the rooftop bar were gorgeous, and as I sipped on some bubbles and watched people playing beach volleyball I was reminded from the millionth time why life is so much better in Florida.

  9. St. Augustine and Beach are the BEST! My in-laws snowbird to St. Auggie Beach every year...and we got engaged at the top of the lighthouse. <3 Such a special place to us. We have one of the first bottles of vodka made at the distillery, but have yet to visit! Our yearly trip changed once we started having kids, but it'll happen again soon enough. Glad you loved it as much as we do!

  13. So fun! We used to stop in St. Augustine every year on our way to vacation for school clothes shopping but were never able to explore the city itself. That's on my to-do list for another Florida trip because it seems like such a cool place!
