" [Grapes are] the most noble and challenging of fruits."
~Malcolm Dunn, Head Gardener to the 7th Viscount Powerscourt, c 1867
About Fox Hollow...
Located near beautiful Lake Seminole in the northwest Florida town of Sneads, Fox Hollow Vineyard features four varieties of muscadine grapes. Fox Hollow is a 4-acre estate vineyard and is meticulously maintained by owners Susan and Bruce Paul. Susan founded the vineyard in early 2003, with the help of her family and a small group of friends lending hardworking hands to the vineyard layout, placing of trellising and manually planting each vine. Since then, she met and married Bruce, gaining not only a “best buddy” but a partner in the year-round maintenance and upkeep of the vineyard.
By the 2006 season, Fox Hollow was open for business as a U-Pick vineyard as well as selling grapes at wholesale to local vendors. Over the past few years, Fox Hollow has become a local favorite U-Pick destination. We have loyal customers who return every year and we have been delighted to meet visitors from all over the Florida Panhandle area, central and south Florida, southern Alabama, Georgia and as far away as New York--we even have customers who have shipped our grapes to family members across the United States!
Guests love that our vineyard is clean and free of weeds and underbrush, making the picking easy and worry-free. We do not use pesticides or other dangerous chemicals on our vines and work hard to minimize our impact on Mother Earth.

What's New at Fox Hollow?
Updated August 1, 2013
What a crazy Spring and Summer we've had so far! Well over a month of torrential rains and a couple of windstorms have had us working harder than usual to get the vineyard ready for the 2013 season. We will officially be open Saturday, August 3rd, but we are about a week behind where we usually are this time of year where ripeness of the grapes is concerned. The grapes are plentiful and FAT from all of the rain, but not quite ripe. If you live in the area, feel free to come see us, but if you plan on making a longer trip, the weekend starting August 9th will be better and worth your drive. We will also be selling jellies and preserves made with our grapes and figs.
Check out the progress in the Vineyard Gallery and see pictures of our visitors and the scenery here at Fox Hollow as the season progresses. Come visit us and you might see yourself in the Gallery!
Fox Hollow is proud to be associated with a tri-county (Jackson, Washington, and Holmes) Tourist Development Council effort to bring increased agri/eco-tourism to our area. We've even made the paper!
