Welcome to Spring Garden Vineyard, the home of U-Pick muscadines in DeLeon Springs, Florida. We are your go-to source for U-Pick grapes in Central Florida. We have made it easy for you to enjoy the native muscadine grapes’ unique taste and health benefits, and it’s our pleasure to welcome you to learn more about our vineyard.
Our Vineyard will be closing for the season on Sunday afternoon, September 18, 2016
Spring Garden Vineyard will be officially closing this coming Sunday afternoon to picking, there are very few grapes left in the field. We do have a few bags of frozen grapes and a small supply of Southern Home and Carlos jelly in different size jars. This will complete our first year of having the public pick grapes in our vineyard and unfortunately the unusual weather pattern cut the picking season short. The extreme heat, wind and then the excessive rain were the main reason for losing a significant amount of grapes. We did not anticipate closing the vineyard this early. We expected to be open until the end of September or possibly to the first week in October. We will have a few rows of Late Fry in production next year which will mature in late September early October.
Wanda and I really appreciate everyone who came out to our vineyard and picked grapes this season. We hope you enjoyed the grapes, had a good experience and will come back to see us next year. If you have any suggestions for improving our operation, please let us know. We will announce the August 2017 opening date of the vineyard as soon as it is known, and look forward to serving you in our newly constructed area for displaying jellies, jam and other homemade muscadine items. Have a great year!
