Muscadine wine. This was a fun visit. We learned a lot. Around 9 different flavors to try. Free tasting. Bring cash or checks. They don't accept credit, debit, or PayPal type payments.

The tasting room was just a tiny little shed that you definitely are not really allowed in. They offer three varieties of wine types, Carlos, Magnolia, and Florida Red. Magnolia they told us was very rare in this area and no one did it, until...More

This is worth a stop when driving through Monticello. The tasting is free and all wines are organic. The tasting shed is very small but had AC. The vineyard iswithin steps of the shed. Not a huge variety of grapes/wines but enough that everyone should...More
