Ruby Red

Ruby Red Wine Details

Description: The Ruby Red is a sweeter wine made from red muscadines fermented on the hulls. Its sweetness is a favorite of the southern customers who prefer it over the dry wines. Its deep color matches its name.

Varietal Definition
A species of native American vines that were first discovered by European explorers, who found them growing along the low lying Southern coastal regions. Most Muscadine wines (reds and whites) are blends, usually given proprietary names by the winery (e.g., "Vintners' Blend"), and vinified in the sweet or semi-sweet style. Muscadines and blends are usually sweet and foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky).
