Open: Year Round
With all those vast choices of wines on the shelves of your local supermarket, package store and local restaurants wine lists, why should you consider buying our wines? Many of their wines sport exotic places and far-away lands. Many of their labels tout whimsical beasts and staid places. Many of their bottles are decorated with the latest and most colorful plastic and foil gingerbread and closures. Many of their labels talk about their wines clarity and blended flavors. Their wines are mostly filtered and produced in the thousands of cases and are available almost everywhere.
Our wines, however, are 'always' in limited supply. Our grapes are locally grown on our own vines and have their roots buried deeply in the sandy soils of eastern Manatee County, Florida. The grapes that make our wines are from an ancient stock that is native to the southeast United States. They sport names like "Noble, Magnolia, Black Beauty, Supreme and etc.". Collectively, they are, all, Muscadine grapes. These grapes grow more in clusters than in bunches and have skins thicker than almost any other grapes in the world. To the uninformed, the wines made from these grapes are considered inferior to the more popular bunch grapes. The truth is, they make a 'World Class' wine! Our single goal is to produce the 'Gold Standard' of Florida wines and to produce 'Only' World Class wines.
We are "NOT" driven by the mantra of wine clarity, but, rather by the taste, bouquet and flavor of the grape. Our grapes/wines are "NEVER" blended! From the vine to the bottle, we never mix or blend a single grape or carboy of wine! "All" our wines are fermented with the 'skins' of the grape. Yes, even the 'whites'! This insures that our wines are imparted with all the goodness and flavor that nature has stored in the skins. Not a single bottle of our wine is bottled until it is, at least, one year old! Wine needs to rest in order to mature and to stabilize the bouquet and flavor. "All" our wines are "UNFILTERED"! By using the natural force of gravity, we are able to achieve a remarkable level of clarity to our wines. This labor intensive process will take a year to reach maximum clarity. It will entail manual racking's of from three to six times for 'each & every' carboy of wine. Because our goal is to protect the integrity of the taste, bouquet and flavor of the grape, we consider this traditional method vital to creating our wines.
