THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia couple developed a new variety of wine, and they're selling it at their new business in downtown Thomasville.

Renee and Clayton Moss always dreamed of owning a business.  That dream has come true.

106 North Broad Street in Downtown Thomasville is now the new home of Farmer's Daughter Vineyards.

"Farmer's Daughter Vineyards and our tasting room here is the result of many years of passion," said Renee Moss.

And the community is welcoming them with open arms. 

"Thomasville is a great town, we've known since the very first time I came to Thomasville, that this is where I wanted to be," said Renee.

Clayton Moss used his knowledge of southern wine grapes and crop diversification from his studies at the University of Kentucky and came up with a Hybrid Wine. 

"We grow specific grapes that can tolerate the heat and humidity, they're not immune to anything by any means but they're more able to thrive in our environment," said Clayton Moss.

Two years ago, the first grapes were planted and since then The Moss Family has seen an overwhelming amount of support for their wine. 

"We've made some really quality wines that have already won some pretty prestigious awards so we're pretty tickled pink but we're humble," said Clayton.

They continue to work hard in their vineyards and their new downtown business to provide something new for south Georgia consumers. 

Along with some new red wines, Farmer's Daughter Vineyards will be releasing a new secret product later this summer.
