Muscadine

Muscadines (Vitis rotundifolia) are a grapevine species native to the present-day southeastern United States that has been extensively cultivated since the 16th Century. Its recognized range in the United States extends from New York south to Florida, and west to Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. They are well adapted to their native warm and humid climate; they need fewer chilling hours than better known varieties and they thrive on summer heat. Muscadine berries range from bronze to dark purple to black in color when ripe. However, many wild varieties stay green through maturity. They have skin sufficiently tough that eating the raw fruit often involves biting a small hole in the skin to suck out the pulp inside. Muscadines are not only eaten fresh, but also are used in making wine, juice, and jelly.

  • Let me add my welcome, Sarah Kate.  Muscadine is something that is pretty hard to find outside of the Southern Atlantic States.  I had my one and only experience with it about a year ago during a visit to North Carolina.  Regarding your husbands not liking alcohol, if it is not a health issue, then maybe he can be converted.  I know that my enjo...

    If you love muscadine & scuppernong grapes like I do, then you will love uncorking this bottle and getting a good whiff of that Southern sunshine. A sweet, succulent, and unassuming wine. Great to use for making a summertime sangria! Read More

  • Duplin Winery Muscadine Hatteras Red NV

    Snoothrank:

    After lamenting the loss of availability in my area for Croft Pink, I'd been searching for a suitable substitute to sweeten my senses without submerging into sugarcoating. Duplin's Hatteras Red looks vibrant, smells slightly floral, lavishes the tongue with opulent sweetness, and yet throws in an air of mysterious character. What is that sensu... Read More

  • Lu Mil Vineyard Bladen Blush Sweet Muscadine Wine NV

    Snoothrank:

    This is vitis muscadinia and I really do not have much experience with muscadine wine. It is sweet "blush" but not as sweet as a dessert wine. Ripe peaches and ripe melons with lots of sugar. Not much of a finish to speak of. Read More

  • Childress Muscadine NV

    Snoothrank:

    We tasted this at the winery last Friday. I had never had a Muscadine, before--or even seen it on a store shelf. So, I was not going to miss this opportunity to try one. Overall it is a fun easy to drink wine. The Childress example is sweet, although I understand that it is not uncommon for Muscadine to be fermented dry. Lots of fruit flavo... Read More
