Fruit-forward wine found in South Georgia
A new wine for a different pallet is on the market in Southwest Georgia.
Farmer's Daughter Vineyards and Winery is a third-generation family farm that produces three varieties of French-American hybrid grapes and eight fruit-forward wines.
Once the grapes are harvested and bottled, it takes about ten months for the bottles to hit the shelves.
Right now, the grapes are grown, crushed and bottled in Pelham at the vineyard and winery and the bottles will then go to the tasting room in Thomasville.
Owner Renee Moss says that "people should taste and not feel like they need to know anything about the wine when they come. We want them to come in and kinda put all their preconceived notions aside and let us teach them about what it is that we're doing and taste it all."
All eight wines have earned medals from different competitions across the country. The most recent awards came from the Taster's Guild in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Five of the eight flavors received either a gold or silver medal, including new flavors that will soon head to the shelves.
The late-harvest Bombshell was released the first week of May. On May 19, Daredevil will be released and in the beginning of June, the new Knockout wine will be poured.
Moss adds that they're honored to be a part of the variety of what the Thomasville community offers tourists and residents.
