Old South Winery, Natchez, MS, was founded in 1979 by Scott O Galbreath Jr, DVM, and his lovely wife, Edeen. Dr. Galbreath, Doc, remembers helping his Grandmother Vic make muscadine wine when he was a teenager; right across the street from the winery’s present location! Doc and his favorite cousin, Louise, went to the woods, shook the vines and brought their juicy bounty home to learn at the feet of their German grandmother.
Many years later, Doc decided to drink wine for his health and remembered how good Grandmother Vic’s muscadine wine tasted. Edeen encouraged him to start another career in the city and come home from the farms, so they decided to open a winery that specialized in muscadine wines. They continued to operate the winery by themselves for 16 years, with occasional help from various family members – whether they wanted to help or NOT
