mississippi wineriesThe muscadine grape is king in the South, and apparently always felt right at home in the Mississippi warmth.

Early Southern settlers described them as growing on the sand, hills or plains - or anywhere else the vine could plant its hardy roots.

Today, a handful of Mississippi wine growers are supplying the demand for sweeter tasting wines throughout the state with the all-purpose, disease-resistant muscadine. Drinkers can also take heart in recent research that points to the muscadine grape lending one of the highest concentrations of health-giving resveratrol.

Find out more about the muscadine, how it's used to make wine in Mississippi, and why it's come to be called "the passion fruit of the South..."
