This quiet gem of an attraction offers classic southern charm in abundance. Well worth the drive to get to.

A tasting is $5 for five wines. You have to wait for specific times, and if a bus comes, you may get bumped. The wine is all made from muscadine grapes, so the wine is sweet and for the most part tastes like grapes. Great if you like that, but it's not for everyone. The winery shares a property with...

The staff was very friendly and the family ran winery atmosphere was wonderful. We enjoyed a lovely picnic on the garden tables and got to try a fair amount... More

We had a really nice time checking out this vineyard and distillery even though it was in March. The wines were really great and we were able to learn about the health benefits of this wine as well as how the owner's got started during our wine tasting. We also tasted some vodka's, whiskey's and more at the distillery. All... More

I want to start by saying that this vineyard is gorgeous, especially during the fall. I've been before and was very impressed by the location. However, I attended the Oyster Roast this past weekend and experienced probably one of the least organized events I've ever attended. There was no one directing traffic and parking, so there were cars parked randomly... More

Thank you for your review. Due to county law, since the event wasn't considered a "festival" we had to sell tickets. We agree with you that the lines were way too long and there wasn't enough signage to get the points across. This event is only in its infancy and next year, we are making it a festival so we...

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.
