Feliciana Cellars:

The stately Spanish Mission-style structure that houses Feliciana Cellars opened its doors in 1994 when the winery made its debut. Two of the founding partners, Leroy Harvey and Rupert Thompson, had been instrumental in passing the Native Wine Law which allowed for wineries to operate in Louisiana. Not long after that law passed, Harvey, Thompson and Jim Hendrickson founded Feliciana Cellars. Feliciana Cellars today produces 9 different varieties of wine, and also features special occasion wines from time to time. The sparkling wine, Esperanza, has received rave reviews and a limited amount of this product is available each year in December. Most of the wines are produced from the native Southern Muscadine, a hearty grape that thrives in the heat and humidity of the South. The muscadine produces a light, crisp and fruity wine that pairs well with spicy Louisiana cuisine. Many people enjoy it as a dessert wine, while others find it refreshing for sipping on a hot summer afternoon. In addition to three varieties of muscadine, we also grow two varieties of hybrid bunch grapes - Blanc du Bois and Norton Cynthiana - which produce wonderful wines. The winery produces some 2,000 - 4,000 cases each year, making it one of the largest in Louisiana. All of the fruit is grown locally in our two vineyards, one of Highway 10 and another on Highway 68, just a few miles from the winery. Read less
