~ ~ 100% Muscadine Juice - Locally Grown ~ ~

Farmers' markets ~ great time to share the taste of our 100% naturally sweet muscadine juice. Muscadine juice is sweeter and not as heavy as other grape juice, all natural, no sugar added. And we sure like to hear your comments when tasting the juice for the first time, makes us smile ~ “I remember eating muscadines, and the smell and the flavor, at my grandparents”… “a very distinct, sweet and earthy muscadine taste”… “good tasting and good for me”.  

There are many varieties of muscadines, and we grow two varieties right here in Rockingham County. Our black 'Noble' muscadine makes our red juice, and our Carlos ‘bronze’ muscadine is an improved scuppernong variety. The scuppernong was the first grape to be cultivated in the United States, and comes from the oldest vine in the nation, the 400-year-old Mother Vine growing on Roanoke Island. Scuppernong was also made the state fruit in 2001.

The muscadine skin is usually too thick to eat, and some people spit it out along with the seeds. But this is optional!  Great taste, heart-healthy, with over seven times the concentration of resveratrol than other bunch grapes. Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant that may fight cancer and prevent heart disease, and a one cup serving of muscadines can double your daily intake of antioxidants.

Our family has worked hard to harvest this year's muscadine crop for the best juice yet. Naturally sweet - wholesome - 100% muscadine juice - Riverbirch Vineyards & Farm.
