What are Muscadines? 

Muscadines (vitis rotundifolia) are native to the American South, and have a distinctive aroma and flavor unlike other wine grape varieties. Wines made from Muscadines are described as grapey, cotton-candylike, fruity, piney, even ambrosial.  POST’s are finished in a sweet style. POST makes 100% Muscadine juices as well as four Muscadine wine styles. The most popular is our Red Muscadine, followed by blue Parachute, a softer, juicier Riesling-styled white.

Is your wine vegan-friendly?

Wine is made with yeast, considered off limits by some vegans. Otherwise, we don’t use animal by-products in our wine production.

Is your wine gluten-free?

Yes! 

How many grape varietals does Post grow?

We have grown some varieties for over a hundred years. Campbell’s Early, once used for red table wine, is a fresh-eating grape we still grow. Most of our wine grapes come from Ives, Niagara, Cynthiana, Seval Blanc, Vidal Blanc, Delaware and two new University of Arkansas varietals, Enchantment and Opportunity. The bulk of our vineyards is now planted in several Muscadine (vitus rotundifolia) varieties.
