Scuppernong

(MUSCADINE, V. ROTUNDIFOLIA)

Scuppernong is a historically important Native American Muscadine variety. This bronze-skinned grape is a member of the Vitis rotundifolia family, which includes the first native grapes to produce wine. Scuppernong, which has a typically grapey, musky flavor, has been cultivated since 1809. However, wine is said to have been made from wild vine fruit by French immigrants in the mid-16th century.
