Product Description

Grow a Vineyard in Your Own Backyard!

Many people love wine, but have you considered the pleasures of making your own at home? With a few tools, a little know-how, and of course, a backyard vineyard, you can soon be enjoying wine with home-grown grapes!

Want a duo of two of the best wine-making grapes? Consider our Wine Lover’s Kit, which comes with:

  • One 2-gallon Carlos Muscadine Grape
  • One 3-gallon Summit Muscadine Grape

Planted together, these grapes will have you producing your signature wine in no time!

If muscadine wine is your favorite, the Carlos Scuppernong is a great choice - 90 percent of all muscadine grapes grown in North Carolina are of this variety! The grape is a beautiful bronze color and fruits plentifully each year. A single vine can produce 100 pounds of fruit! It also doesn’t attract disease or pests, and can withstand periods of extreme heat or cold.

And you'll love our Summit Muscadine Grape for its low maintenance and consistent harvest. Known as the "beginner's grape vine," Summit Muscadines require nearly no maintenance after planting - and you'll get a huge harvest of juicy grapes year after year! The grapes will be smaller, with a slightly tougher skin, but still packed with flavor.

Producing your own wine may seem like a dream, but it’s a lot easier than you think. All you need are wine-making tools, a few kitchen ingredients, our Wine Lover’s kit, and a bit of patience, and soon you’ll be showing off your homemade wine to family and friends.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Carlos Muscadine and Tara Scuppernong grapes in a location that offers full sun and moist, well-draining soil. Avoid shaded areas. These grapevines will require some type of trellis to grow properly.

2. Watering: Water the roots directly at least once a week the first year, but watch out for leaf drop as it could be a sign of overwatering. Once your grapevines are established, they will not need much watering.

3. Pruning: Pruning maintains the vine’s form, size, vigor, and the next season’s fruiting. Prune your Muscadine and Scuppernong vines when they are dormant in late winter or early spring.

4. Harvesting: Taste is the best indicator of whether your grapes are ripe or not. When grapes begin to appear on the vine, pick a few and test their sweetness. It is important to note that they will not ripen once picked, so make sure not to pick them too early.

5. Pollination: Most species of grapes are self-fertile, but it is a good idea to plant them in pairs to increase pollination and fruit yield.

Both the Carlos and the Tara Scuppernong Grapes are self-fertile - you will get fruit with just one plant. However, additional plants will increase your yield.
