St. Augustine’s San Sebastian Winery Faces Voluntary Recall Due To Potential Glass Bits In Bottles

May 30, 2018

Seavin Incorporated, the parent company of San Sebastian Winery in St. Augustine and Lakeridge Winery and Vineyards outside of Orlando, is voluntarily recalling of some wines that may contain small grains or bits of glass.

The recall applies to certain date codes of Lakeridge Winery Southern Red, Southern White, and Cabernet Sauvignon, and San Sebastian Winery Vintners Red and Vintners White.

The precautionary recall comes after the third-party manufacturer of Seavin’s wine bottles concluded there was a manufacturing defect in some glass bottles utilized by Seavin in certain Lakeridge and San Sebastian production runs.

“A representative of our bottle manufacturers involved in the investigation of the defective bottles indicated to Seavin that the number of bottles from its plant actually containing pieces of glass is numerically insignificant, and that the risk to the public is extremely small,” said Seavin in its recall notice.

Seavin is voluntarily recalling certain lots of its Lakeridge and San Sebastian wines. Publix, which is a distributor of the wines, identifies the following batches as being recalled:

  • Lakeridge Cabernet Sauvignon: 052317
