Looking for a way to make the land productive, he contacted the local Agricultural Extension Service. To his dismay, he discovered that the land was unsuitable for farming. His advisors informed him that the land was only suitable for growing grapes. As Dr. Rawlings had always held a passion for fine wines, he was thrilled to hear that he could have his very own vineyard! He and his family planted the fruitful vines and rest, as they say, is history.
Practices & Techniques
To capture the essence of the fruit, we employ our own unique "freeze-fermentation" method. Where other wineries ferment their wines around 50°- 60° Celsius, our winemaker ferments our wines for approximately 6 months to 9 months at around 40°- 45° Celsuis. This special method allows the fermentation process to slow, preserving the natural fruit flavor. This unique process serves as our mark of distinction and contributes to the remarkable popularity of our wines.
When the wine has completed the fermentation process our winemaker tastes every batch to perfection. Different from other wineries, we add very little water and chemicals. Sulfites are low since our organically grown Muscadines are naturally acidic.
Bottling occurs approximately 1 - 2 times per week. Our wine team continues to bottle, cork, and label each batch manually since this process can be faster and more accurate compared to many low-grade, automatic-bottling machines.
With health being the predominant concern for the trait of Georgia Wines, the winery began taking steps to accomplish and master the organic process in 2001. After earning an organic certification in 2003, our team of farmers has been 100% effective in achieving this goal. Organic fertilizer containing compost press, organic mulch, grass clippings, and coffee grounds, aids in the growth of the vines while, in turn, producing superior award winning wines.
