Elite Heart-Healthy Wines
It has been documented that the typical American consumes only two or three servings of fruit and vegetables a day. A single 1-cup serving of muscadine grapes would more than double the average person’s antioxidant intake! That positions Muscadines and Scuppernongs as the elite among a list of powerful antioxidant foods that includes blueberries, pomegranate, blackberries, cranberries and raspberries.
Wine is the perfect host for preserving the unprecedented levels of antioxidants found in Muscadines, Scuppernongs and blueberries. By preventing oxygen exposure, the antioxidant compounds are protected from disintegration by CO2.
WoodMill Winery wines are made from 100% sun ripened Muscadines, Scuppernongs, and blueberries. Each bottle of wine contains the essence of these magnificent fruits, fermented without diluting, to create the ultimate “heart-healthy” beverage. It is like drinking pure fruit!
To satisfy a wide range of palates, WoodMill Winery has developed four residual sugar concentrations that include Sweet, Semi-Sweet, Semi-Dry, and Dry. Our sweet Muscadine and Scuppernong wines are light and fruity with intense bouquets similar to ice wines. The sweet blueberry wines are full bodied and robust with oak and tannin overtones similar to typical dessert wines. Please refer to wine list below for more details.
Note from Winemaker
I am often asked by wine novices, what types of foods go well with Muscadine wine? This is a perplexing question to a native North Carolinian who thinks that sweet Muscadine wine goes well with everything. The problem is, as Southerners, we don’t typically make wine to go with specific meals. Therefore, the best way I know to describe Muscadine wine is that “It’s a front porch sipp’n wine”…in other words, after a long day at the office, in the field, or around the house, we don’t typically wait on food to be served to start enjoying our wine.
Unlike most Vinifera style wines grown throughout Europe and the United States, all Muscadine wines are best served chilled. Also it a good practice to allow the wine to breathe (allow the wine to be exposed to air) for fifteen-to-twenty minutes after opening a new bottle. This will allow the wine to stabilize and will enhance the fruity Muscadine flavor. Please keep in mind that sweet varieties of Muscadine wines are best when consumed within six-to-eight months of purchase.
Muscadine wine is a heart healthy product often recommended by Doctors to improve cardiovascular health. Most Doctors recommend one glass of red wine per day. However, due to the unique Muscadine wine processing used at WoodMill Winery, both red and white Muscadine wines have essentially identical Resveratrol (antioxidant) concentrations.
Please drink responsibly
