We’re still doing our ‘Alabama Sideways’ tour of wineries here, and this time we went to Wills Creek Vineyards outside Attalla.
They grow their own muscadines, so that wine is local; but they bring in grapes from elsewhere to make the other varieties. Av went in to taste:
Tigers for Tomorrow – the rescue shelter for exotic animals that we went to last year – is not far from the winery, and they have teamed up with Wills Creek, who donates a percentage of certain wine sales to the park. There are three varieties of wine now that have TfT labels. Av bought one of those, called ‘Tigerlily,’ and a Scupperdyme wine:
These are both made with fruit that the winery grows.
Our next place to go is a pick-your-own muscadine farm!
