The Fruithurst Winery Co.

The Fruithurst Winery is nestled just north of the town of Fruithurst, AL.  Its name comes from one of the original wineries in the state.  Surrounded by fifteen acres of muscadine vineyards, now owned and operated by two cousins, it carries the elegance and culture of what was then and will forever be the vineyard village.

Wines that are to be produced include but are not limited to: Red and White Muscadine, Strawberry, Blueberry, and Peach. There will be dry, sweet, and semi-sweet varieties available. The Fruithurst Winery operates in conjunction with Laminack Vineyards, offering an array of different table wines.  Laminack Vineyards offers three different types of Muscadines: Noble, Carlos, and Albermarle.  Laminack Vineyards also offers “you pick” portions of the Vineyard.  Also located on the property is a small 1/4 acre patch of strawberries.  There are currently plans to expand the Vineyard, adding approximately 30 more acres of Vineyard.
