The Vineyard will reopen about the middle of August 2017.

Greetings from Don and Ermida Loftus. We are a small vineyard north of Gainesville, FL specializing in dark Muscadine grapes and dedicated to U-Pick. Our main fresh fruit grape is the Supreme, a very large, thin skinned, very sweet grape. The other grapes we grow are the Ison ( a self pollinating variety that produces a very sweet, slightly smaller berry that ripens early in the season) and Delicious (developed by UF to be a very sweet, smoother tasting grape). These last two varieties pollinate the Supreme vines which are female plants. I have an article about the Delicious variety on the “Links” page.

It turns out that Muscadine grapes have many health benefits and they taste good too. I have listed some of the articles on the Links page. Take a look and you just might want to eat a few more grapes.
