    I make a batch of homemade wine every year from muscadines and scuppernongs and this year was a very good year for the fruit! I have a 3 gallon churn worked of the second time and ready to bottle now. I am so pleased and excited [​IMG]
    Does anyone else on here make their own?

    My dh did try twice, two different kinds. The first time was muscadine, it was okay, strong to me [​IMG]

    The second was watermelon wine. Watermelon did so good he thought he would try it. It was [​IMG] to say the least!

    Robin, We do. DH makes Concord every year except last year, even the grape vines froze in the Spring. He makes it in a 55 gal. plastic wine vat.

    Quote:You'd be in trouble if we lived closer...cause I would be at your house quite frequently!! I LOVE scuppernongs and scuppernong wine. I married Midwestern fella that didn't even know what a scuppernong or muscadine was...he doesn't care for them by the way, but that's fine because it's more for me! [​IMG]

    Quote:They are a wild variety of grape that has been propogated and domesticated for comercial use as well now. I use the wild variety [​IMG]
    They seem to have a richer more pleasing flavor.
