We enjoyed a wine tasting after a visit to Charleston Tea Plantation and Firefly Distillery. The wines were unique and different, and we all really enjoyed them! The lady who served us for our tasting is a South Carolina native, and she shared lots of interesting information about the wines and the area. This is a nice place to visit,... More

We wanted to do the wine tasting but found out that they had ram out of their white wine selections and only had red. The gift store had some cute items but was disappointed about the wines.

My husband and I stopped at the Irvin House Vineyards in October on our way out of Charleston to Georgia. It's about 21.5 miles/35 mins from Charleston. We both like wine, but were hesitant because we thought the muscadine wine would be too sweet. We were pleasantly surprised to find some very nice drinking wines and even purchased some to... More

A neat little winery. They make the wine out of a varietal that only grows here in SC and GA. Very interesting taste. Don't expect a bold Napa Cabernet, but really neat to experience. Also the Firefly tour is right beside here, great day out.

When we got there they were closed ( don't go on Monday). We got lucky in that they were preparing to do a private tasting and we were early enough and enough of us to do a special tasting for us. We love visiting wineries where ever we go and this one was no different. Different areas of the country... More

We visited here last Saturday, there were seven of us. Wanda was assigned to us. Her friendliness and enthusiasm made our tasting awesome. Although we loved everything, we only bought several of the favors so we can return soon to buy more!

On same property as Firefly Distillery so you can visit both (and sip there too!). About a 45 minute drive from Charleston. Fun to gather a bunch of girlfriends and spend the afternoon. Nice gift shop too!

I was a bit disappointed in the wines which are made from Muscadine grapes. These wines are not as sweet as others I have sampled and I am a sweet wine gal. Learning about the grapes, the process, and the folks who made this dream a reality was very interesting.

We did the wine tasting and it was fun. They make 5 wines out of the local grapes. This is a great thing to do if you have some down time. Its about 40 minutes away from Charleston, but worth the drive!
