"Alabama's First Farm Winery Since Prohibition"


A 50 acre Muscadine Grape Vineyard was established
at this site in 1972 to produce grapes for Bartels
Winery of Pensacola, Florida. In 1979, legislation
sponsored by Rep. John M. McMillan (Stockton)
and Sen. Dick Owen (Bay Minette) was enacted
into law by Gov. Fob James as The Alabama
Native Farm Winery Act of 1979. The Winery was
established September 1, 1979 as Bonded Winery-Alabama-No. 1, the first Alabama Winery since
before Prohibition. Jim and Marianne Eddins,
as owners and winemakers, produced table wines
from the native Muscadine grapes and other fruits
grown in the State of Alabama. In 2002, the
Winery began producing wine vinegars that have
won international awards.
