It doesn't require any type of special occasion to drink wine, especially when you're on vacation. Whether you're a wine aficionado or just enjoy a few sips now and then, you can't go wrong deciding to add a few wine tastings to your itinerary. This is particularly the case when staying on Isle of Palms in South Carolina. Though outdoor recreation may be the main draw to the island, the Lowcountry is also known for offering some of the finest wines you've ever tasted. The region is brimming with a number of opportunities to satisfy your palate with both local and national offerings. Below are a few places well worth checking out if you're in the mood for a good glass of wine.
Ardoa Wine Bar
Ardoa Wine Bar is a comfortable spot in Mt. Pleasant to try an exclusive selection of wines. You have the option of choosing your serving size by the glass through interactive wine dispensers, or you can opt to purchase a whole bottle. As the perfect compliment, an assortment of gourmet meats, cheeses, desserts, and other snacks are available.
Mira Winery brings California's wine country to the South Carolina coast. Located in downtown Charleston, the tasting room offers samples of wines produced at the boutique Mira Winery in Napa Valley. Flight tastings include three options from a long list of whites and reds. Wines are limited production so releases vary, and you must make an appointment for a tasting.
O'Hara & Flynn Wine Bar
At O'Hara & Flynn Wine Bar, you'll be whisked away on vacation all over again amidst the collection of animated artwork and hand-selected wines. The quaint Charleston venue pours wine by the glass, which can be paired with different food items that are offered, while listening to live music on Thursday and Friday nights.
Charleston Winery is a wine shop situated in the heart of Charleston that specialized in fruit-based wines. It's a unique selection, unlike what you would find at a typical winery. Open all day, this is a great place to come on the weekends when they supply guests with free tastings. Staying in a vacation rental with Exclusive Properties makes it easy for you to continue enjoying your wine long after the tasting has ended. Bring home your favorite bottles and have a relaxing night in lounging on the couch or on your private deck overlooking the ocean.
