Located in the small South Georgia town of Wray, Paulk Vineyards is a family-owned winery that has been a legacy in the muscadine industry since 1970. Stop by for some old-fashioned Southern Hospitality and great muscadine wine.
Explore Georgia’s rich history of wine-making with a visit to Paulk Vineyards in Wray, Georgia.
Located in the rural countryside of South Georgia, Paulk Vineyards offers Southern charm and a homey setting that make it the perfect destination for an afternoon of wine-tasting.
The Paulk family has farmed this land for six generations. They planted their first muscadine vine in 1970 and have since grown that to over 600 acres of muscadines and scuppernongs, which they sell as fresh produce, juices, jellies, supplements, and wine.
Fresh muscadine grapes are available seasonally in August and September. The vineyard’s Purple and White Muscadine Juices won the 2015 and 2016 Flavor of Georgia contests.
Paulk Vineyards began making and bottling their own wines in 2017. They have 11 award-winning muscadine and other fruit wines, as well as the Sweet Tree line of fruit-infused wines.
Their original line is named for members of the Paulk family, grandparents and great-grandparents, as well as roads on and around the farm and their iconic A-frame cabin.
Paulk Vineyards offers wine tastings for $5 per flight of 5-6 wines, depending on the group you choose to taste. There’s no need for a reservation. Just come in and take a seat at the bar.
Their tastings are split into three categories: the Family of Muscadine Wines are all the wines named for Paulk family members; the Farm are all fruit wines and specialty muscadine wines named for locations around the farm; the Sweet Tree (my favorite) are muscadine and scuppernong wines infused with natural fruit flavors. You can also Pick Your Own and create a customized tasting.
Since their tastings are so cheap, you can easily try all 19 of their wines — it would only cost $20! This is what we did, and it was well worth it. Then we knew exactly which bottles to take home.
