History

The Winery operation began with the first crush of muscadine & scuppernong grapes from our own vineyards in August 2003. Handpicked, and toted with care, the grapes where crushed into the primary fermenator boxes to await careful analysis and recipe completion.

Our first vats were bottled in November 2003. We produce seven styles of country style wines celebrating the taste of the south. The winery is housed in a converted agricultural grain bin. The metal bin has been outfitted with heavy timber beams, a second floor, guest viewing area, and an outside crushing porch.

Practices & Techniques

Muscadines & Scuppernongs were one of the most pleasant surprises found by the early colonists that settled the Southeastern United States. Native to the region and adapted to the climate, they are vigorous performers and steeped in southern tradition.

The big, fat grapes have a “musky” aroma and a thick honey taste. It’s hard to keep the nectar from dribbling down your chin. Many a southern conversation reminisces hot summer days amidst enormous canopies of vine and sweet fruit. Picked, crushed & fermented, we proudly celebrate this tradition, offering wines for any occasion

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Our Vineyard was planted in 1999. Today we have the best of "Big Fat White" & "Big Fat Black" fruit available for wine making and picking.
