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.

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.

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.
