We love to drop in on a Sunday (or any day for that matter) to enjoy a bottle of wine while sitting outside under the umbrellas. We love the atmosphere and have met so many nice people there. It's also a great place to watch Georgia football on a Saturday. The wine tasting once a month is another favorite thing we do. You get to taste a great selection of wines and if you want to purchase any, they are on sale! We highly recommend you drop by. It's very relaxing way to spend your time. And if you like to shop, the stores next door are fun to browse through. I always find something I can't live without!

Whether you are a local or a visitor Mike, Russ and the girls make you feel like family. Very knowledgable about the wines and craft beers they carry without being snobby.

I love coming to this place! Come on down and see what it has to offer (in addition to great wine, beer, coffee, cheeses and meats). Mike, Russ, April and Bridget will take great care of you! AND Darien is a cute little town to go explore as well...

Stopped in for the second time in 3 months and the experience is consistent. It's a nice change of pace to hang out instead of your run of the mill dock bar(s). Nice wine selection with limited choices for food/cheese pairings. They also have beer for those who choose to have them instead. They carry the domestics plus Fat Tire and Sweetwater. For me, those two will get me in again.
The front of the shop has a wide variety of wines, food and cheeses to purchase from. However, we went to the rear where the Wine Bar was. Live music is offered and check to see when they'll have it. It's not too big with tables for couples and one large table surrounded by sofa style seating. You can order by the glass or bottle and they have suggestions for appetizers on a little chalk board. Both times we've opted for the cheese and fruit plate - Grapes, crackers, green olives and three cheese varieties. It went well with our wine choice.
The staff is friendly and attentive. The hostess even remembered us from our 1st visit.

Discover in the tiny town of Darien the Waterfront Wine & Gourmet. Here you'll find quaint shops, good dining and fine wines. Worth stop and the view of river is great.
