Traditionally, Georgia's grape and wine industry has been known for the state's native muscadine grape. In fact, Georgia leads the nation in its production of these grapes. Georgia's climate is well suited for growing muscadines, which are traditionally used for making jams, sauces and wine.

In addition to muscadines, modern fungicides have recently been used in the successful production of the European bunch grape and French-American hybrids in North Georgia, leading to interest in these varieties.

UGA Extension provides both growers and home gardeners a variety of information to help have the best output with the least amount of labor possible.
