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!

Booked a wine + distillery tasting for a bachelorette party back in August - had an awesome time! It was better than anything I could have even imagined. The setting is gorgeous, a beautiful, relaxed vineyard in the summer. We booked transportation from downtown Charleston with the vineyards recommended Holy City Transportation. This was a fantastic decision - the driver,... More

We've toured numerous vineyards over the years, and normally you get a tour of the operation, then a small tasting. Here it was just the tasting: $5 for five wines, and you keep the souvenir wine glass. All their wine is from the muscadine grape, so even their "dry" wines are a bit on the sweet side. Right next door... More

While this place is definitely far from downtown charleston, it was a fun stop. The wine tasting is cheap but I would have liked a more personal experience rather than just watching a movie with a group of people. The wine is good though and inexpensive!

This a great little trip off the beaten path to take while in Charleston. It's a very small and cute distillery and vineyard that takes about 30 minutes to get to from downtown. I loved that my friend and I could go and visit and enjoyed everything there was to do and it didn't eat up an entire day. I... More
