The Bowman Vineyard began its journey in the late 1800s when Adrian and Laller Henderson purchased the Oakman Branch Road property where tobacco was harvested. This bountiful property was passed on to their children in the late 1960s and, in the early 2000s, this property was passed on to third and fourth generations of the Henderson family – the Bowman family.
Bowman Vineyards cultivates and harvests several varieties of muscadines and muscadine products such as Muscadine Jelly, Syrup, Muscadine Cider, 100% Grape Juice and Muscadine Barbecue Sauce.
Muscadines are indigenous to South Carolina. The sandy soil and hot weather make for the ideal environment to farm the many varieties of muscadines.
