  • Irvin House Vineyards
    Beneath the shade of oak trees bearing Spanish moss, Irvin~House Vineyards' owners Jim and Ann Irvin concoct five award-winning wines from four varieties of muscadine grape grown and harvested on their 48-acre property. Each batch fills bottles adorned with labels crafted by local Charleston artists before visitors sample their muscadine-rich flavors during tastings and tours. In addition to weekly winery sessions, the Irvins enthrall community members and wine connoisseurs alike with varied events, such as bluegrass and grape-stomping festivals, held on land that shelters a renovated party barn, flower and vegetable garden, chicken coop, and outdoor picnic area. The Irvins' acreage also accommodates Firefly Distillery, which supplies tastings of its Firefly vodka and Sea Island rum to curious visitors and marooned pirates bemoaning their empty flasks.

The curators focus on artisanal?producers such as Giuseppe Quintarelli. For an insight into their selection process, simply head to the the dark wood tasting bar at the center of the shop. Here, patrons can sample wines alongside Mediterranean foods?maybe the locally-made ravioli of the week, a shareable plate of smoked duck breast charcuterie, or a hoardable plate of five-year aged gouda.
