For a truly unique wine experience at your next gathering with friends consider one of the growing wines coming from vineyards made with muscadines instead of traditional grapes. While still grapes these native fruits to Southeast United States are growing in popularity for those who want a local experience. These fruits thrive in warm and humid climates and for those in the south are a real treat.
Wineries in Arkansas and other parts of the south are taking advantage of a traditional crop that has been cultivated since the 16th century and are turning more and more into wine. The demand has been growing to the point many cannot produce enough muscadines for the needs of their wineries. As more people outside of the south discover this version of the grape and as scientist begin to discover its benefit to the body demand is only going up.
For those looking for something new to bring home in their wine carriers from the store consider trying a muscadine wine for a truly American experience. As more wineries set up shop in the region expect to see more of these offerings on your store shelves in the future.
