Mus­ca­dine Wines

About the Mus­ca­dine Grape

Often called “America’s First Grape,” mus­ca­dine grapes thrive in hot cli­mates of the south­east­ern United States. This unique envi­ron­ment makes them spe­cial in their abil­ity to heal them­selves from dis­ease, bac­te­ria, and fungi that often plague Euro­pean grapes.

Many nutri­tion­ists have found mus­ca­dine grapes are loaded with more healthy com­pounds than other much-​touted foods such as blue­ber­ries, goji berries, green tea, red wine, and dark choco­late. Mus­ca­dine grapes and their seeds are one of nature’s best sources of antiox­i­dants and pos­sess anti-​inflammatory prop­er­ties. Com­pared to other grapes, mus­ca­dine grapes have 40 times more resver­a­trol — the polyphe­nol found in red wine that is proven to ben­e­fit car­dio­vas­cu­lar health, blood sugar lev­els and the aging process.

Mus­cadry: From the mus­ca­dine vari­ety called CAR­LOS, this wine is entirely made from Geor­gia grapes. The bou­quet is exotic, intense, and com­plex; the taste pro­file is vibrant, full, and ele­gant. It is an excel­lent expres­sion of the char­ac­ter of our state’s grape! Made in a style never seen before, it was aged in French bar­rels for 4 months to become an off-​dry white wine that can be sim­ply sipped on the patio as well as paired per­fectly with fish, sushi, and other light style foods. 12% Alco­hol, 2% Resid­ual Sugar.

Pink Mus­cadry: This rose ver­sion is made from the mus­ca­dine vari­ety called NOBLE: dark berry that cre­ates a wine with the same aro­matic pro­file as the clas­sic mus­ca­dine. It went through the same process as the MUS-​CADRY, with only a vari­ance on the sweet­ness level. This Pink ver­sion has 2.5% of resid­ual sugar, just slightly higher than the Mus­cadry. The bou­quet is very fruity with accents of trop­i­cal fruit, and it tastes deli­cious. Per­fect in sum­mer with fish, pizza, and fresh sal­ads. 12% Alco­hol, 2% Resid­ual Sugar.

Dun­can Creek: Made with the same high stan­dards of our clas­sic dry white wines, this light bod­ied sweet wine is from 100% Geor­gia Mus­ca­dine Grapes. The bou­quet has notes of fresh grapes, pineap­ple, apri­cot, and mango with accents of lemon grass. Sweet and crisp, it’s a true clas­sic and exotic Geor­gia Mus­ca­dine Wine. 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

NEW: Dun­can Creek Red: Dun­can Creek Red is our ruby red sweet wine crafted from the red mus­ca­dine vari­ety called NOBLE. This Geor­gia grown grape under­went a metic­u­lous wine mak­ing process to cre­ate a pre­mium wine with an exotic bou­quet and is the ideal com­pan­ion for your next cook­out. Serve chilled and enjoy! 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

Sum­mer Wine: The same pre­mium pro­file as Dun­can Creek, this pop­u­lar and excit­ing mus­ca­dine wine has a clean and clear essence of peach nec­tar. A charm­ing sweet wine to be enjoyed any­time of the year! 12.5% Alco-​hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

Spring Blos­som: The same pre­mium pro­file as Dun­can Creek, this rose mus­ca­dine wine will enliven your senses with the unique essence of fresh straw­ber­ries. A nice clean and crisp taste to be enjoyed any­time of the year! 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

Autumn Blush: The same pre­mium pro­file as Dun­can Creek, this delight­ful light bod­ied wine exudes a light red hue as lovely as its clean and crisp taste. It fills your mouth with del­i­cate and pleas­ant rasp­berry notes. A per-​fect wine for any­time of the year! 12.5% Alco­hol, 6% Resid­ual Sugar.

Chardon­nay Reserve 2013: 100% from Chardon­nay grapes, fer­mented in stain­less steel and aged for 6 months in oak: 50% in new French bar­rels and 50% in neu­tral bar­rels.

Ele­gantly oaked, it shows all the nuances of the Chardon­nay vari­eties with a back­ground of toasted sweet vanilla.

Pinot Gri­gio 2012: Pinot Gri­gio is one of the most famous and pop­u­lar white wine, my ver­sion is very aro­matic, with fla­vors of lemon grass, arugula, and cit­rus. Crisp and refresh­ing, it is dry, very min­eral, with a medium body. From grapes grown in Yolo county in Cal­i­for­nia, it pairs beau­ti­fully with seafood dishes, pizza, grilled chicken, and lob­ster, as well as light cheeses or pasta. 13.8% Alcohol.

Brut Reserve: Our Brut Reserve is a method char­mat sparkling wine made from 100% Chardon­nay grapes har­vested in 2013. It really tastes like the famous Ital­ian Pros­ecco! Light, fresh, very fruity, and per­fect for all occasions.

Red Wines

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve: This is seriously good Cabernet! A classic expression of the varietal with dark berry fruit on the nose followed by a depth of cocoa and black pepper in the background. A perfect balance of oak on this wine rounds off the profile for an exacting complexity found in only the most premium cabernets.

Pinot Noir 2013 Reserve: 100% from Pinot Noir grapes, it is medium gar­net in the glass; it smells of green herbs, bright flow­ers, and wet dirt with a hint of red berries under­neath.

Bar­bera D’Asti D.O.C.G. 2011: An incred­i­ble new Chateau Elan red wine com­ing from the Pied­mont region of Italy, where our part­ner win­ery is pro­duc­ing it exclu­sively for us under the direc­tion of our wine­maker, Simone Bergese.
