In the 1560s, this attracted other Spanish and French Huguenot settlers who were drawn to the prospect of starting a wine industry to rival those in Europe. They had no luck transplanting European varietals, which didn’t take to the moist conditions and were prone to Pierce’s disease, fungus, and rot.

  • The San Sebastian Port and the San Sebastian Vintner's Reserva (Red) are my two favorites that have two types of the Floridian Muscadine Varietal. Sweet, but tasty when your in the mood. Being a Floridian myself, it's nice to have a grape from my home state.
