We met some fellow travelers at the Charleston Tea Plantation who told us we should check out this distillery and ask for Wanda. We've been to wineries in the past but never a distillery so we wanted to check this out. It did not disappoint!

We visited the distillery and winery with a group of WWII Vets and their families. The visit was terrific. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The tastings were very fun and the staff was very knowledgeable about their products. There was a small band that played between the winery and distillery that added to the enjoyment as well. Great... More

We had a great time at Firefly. We got to taste some different and surprising flavors of vodka and moonshine. Our servers were very friendly and funny. They even took video for us of our first time trying moonshine. They also mixed some flavors together for us to try. The only problem is... there is NO FOOD - only popcorn... More

My friend and I had a GREAT time at Firefly Distillery/Irvin House Vineyards. I have had Firefly sweet tea vodka before but was delighted to find out about all their other products (moonshine and other flavored liqueurs) $6 for the tastings at the Distillery and you get to keep the shot glass as a souvenir. I wish I caught the... More

$6 for the fire fly tastings, and you keep your cool shot glass. Friendly staff and good alcohol. We didnt do the wine tasting but it was good time and such a nice area. You can check out their animals and garden. Close to Charleston Tea Plantation so check it both out. You won't be disappointed.

Went last week to sipping Saturday. We are locals and this was our first time. Enjoyed the music and wine tasting. The highlight was Wanda our bartender. She had us laughing the whole time. We will back for more Firefly and Wanda.

My wife, daughter and I enjoy wine and build wineries into our travels whenever possible. Our preference focuses on dry red wines, the kind that sucks the moisture right out of you cheeks. We weren't familiar with the muscadine grapes so in that regard, the sweet wines they had to offer just didn't please our palates. That being said the... More

We drove 3 hours to attend the Festival. Didn't need a reason to, besides the distillery tastings and the purchase of a select few of their Vodka's. They also had several food vendors, one including ChuckTown Mobile Seafood. This is the 2nd time we have enjoyed his food at this spot. He's got the freshest crab cakes and fried seafood,... More

We had just wrapped up another local tour and decided to take the gamble and drop in to FireFly and their sister operation at the vineyard. The staff knew their product and were somewhat attentive to our questions. We have done a number of wineries in VA since there are so many and the service here was just as good.... More
