The Ohoopee River, noted for coarse, ivory sands bleached and tumbled in tannin-stained waters, serves as an ecological sanctuary depositing vital nutrients on its path to the massive Altamaha. Cradled between these two rivers, Watermelon Creek Vineyard draws inspiration for its Muscadine wines from many of their qualities.
The cool, easy sweetness of Ohoopee River White is reminiscent of a slice from the river-chilled watermelon while on a hot summer evening’s escape to the ivory sands of the Ohoopee. Enjoy Ohoopee River White and conjure your own diversion to an enchanting place where you sense the river’s warm white sands and its rhythm to the sea.
- This golden, very sweet white made from the bronze Carlos Muscadine vents a fruity aroma and silky disposition. It provides a juicy, medium-to-full bodied flavor with a hint of spice for the indulger. The Ohoopee River White is a very sweet dessert style wine; close your eyes and you're drinking that big bronze grape.
- Perfect in a fancy aperitifs glass as the beginning or end to a great southern meal- pour atop fresh fruit and chill for 30 minutes then spoon this luscious mixture on cake or ice cream- splash in fresh cream as you are whipping for a topping like no other!

I don't really care for wines. They taste like sour grapes,but this does not. It actually tastes good.
Wines are exceptional and service was great. I received my order and will be ordering again
