Sandon Dennis made wine as a hobby in 1997. When the local Lutheran Church in Albemarle began using it for communion, parishioners started to meet Dennis in the parking lot after the service to buy bottles. In 1998, Cornell University researchers discovered the wine had the fourth highest levels of the antioxidant resveratrol that they had ever tested. Dennis soon left his job in computer consulting to become a full-time winemaker. Dennis Vineyards produces 26,000 gallons of wine a year, all produced from the sweet Muscadine grape native to North Carolina.
