Lu Mil Vineyard sits on the family farm site of the late Lucille and Miller Taylor, on Suggs-Taylor Rd, in Dublin, NC. The vineyard was named in their honor. The Taylor family has been a leader in agricultural equipment development for many years; the family farm site has served as a testing ground for their innovative creations. As a way to test their ideas for new machinery for the growing viticulture industry, their Muscadine vineyard was born. The vineyard has grown to over 58 acres in the last five years.
With the grapes producing well, the first estate wines were produced from Lu Mil Vineyard’s 2005 Muscadine grape harvest, and, in December 2005 the vineyard’s Gift Shop and Tasting Room officially opened to the public. Lu Mil Vineyard offers Muscadine wines as: Old Cumberland, Taylor Divine, Bladen Blush, Harmony Hall, Cape Owen Red, Sir Walter Raleigh and Merry Christmas, a limited production seasonal wine. Additionally, jellies, jams, alcohol free wines, juices, ciders, sauces, syrup and grape seed extract pills have been produced from Lu Mil’s vines.
