So, I found a BUNCH of muscadine vines growing on my inlaws back property in the woods. Im from up north so Im totally unfamiliar with this wild grape variety. Anyone with experience willing to lend me some knowledge? Is it worth the effort to make some wine? Or should I just turn them into jelly!!

I just googled it and it seems that there are quite a few brands of wine made with it.

They are pretty yummy to eat. Very thick skinned though.

Considering I have several empty carboys for fermentation, and 2 different wine yeast strains at my house right now, I would make wine with those grapes in a heartbeat!

If you don't have the equipment and knowledge to make wine, maybe the added expense wouldn't be worth it for you.

Yes! If you have the capacity to do so, make some wine! It produces a very drinkable wine with an incredibly unique flavor....  Can't walk you from A - Z on a post here, but search the forum if you need, no different process than from regular grapes...  Good luck  :cheers:    Well worth the effort if you have the means...
