About Us:

Nestled in between the majestic live oaks on Charleston's back porch of Wadmalaw Island, this 48-acre winery and vineyard has something for everyone. Irvin~House Vineyards is the only domestic winery in Charleston, South Carolina and should be on the top of your list when visiting the Lowcountry. A local and visitor favorite, we grow the grapes, harvest them, make the wine and bottle our wines on site. About 30 minutes south of Charleston, the vineyard offers walking trails, a petting zoo, a garden, large pond, winery, Firefly distillery and gift shop. Prepare to spend some time enjoying self-guided tours through the vines or take advantage of our affordable and informative wine tastings. Whether you're a large group or intimate couple, the vineyard has plenty of things to do.

A great place to hangout with friends. Entrace is a little hard to find so keep your eyes open when driving down the road for the gate. Two types of tasting options including liquor and wine. Plenty of places to sit and relax. Come early because the lines get long. There is no real tour of the distillery just tasting rooms. You can walk around the vineyard and check out a variety of farm animals that they have. An interesting place to check out and popular with bridal showers.

What a great way to spend an afternoon! They have vendors and events on Saturday’s. The staff are all very friendly and personable. They all make conversation as you taste test. Pet friendly!

Spent the day touring Charleston events. However, I was disappointed in the Deep Water Winery which is adjacent to Firefly Distillery. This was a special event day for May 5. It was like going to a dog park. The wine tasting was overpriced for what it was. Perhaps I'm jaded from going to vineyards in Napa Valley and expecting too much for a South Carolina winery but...$10 for parking and $7 for the uninteresting tasting doesn't make we want to return. I was interested in going to the distillery but opted to leave after the wines. I've managed special events for many years and was attracted by the ad online, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Went here with a bachelorette party and had a fabulous time! We had reservations for both tastings which certainly cut down on wait times. The atmosphere is great with a friendly staff, live music and food carts. The liquors were delicious and our pourer Bert the flirt (he earned this nickname) was hilarious. I will have to say that the wines are mediocre but this probably is due to the region they are growing in. But this did not hinder the experience. I would highly recommend this to any friends visiting the Charleston area!

We planned on visiting this on May 5th, unaware theat we would have to pay entrance fee due to an event going on. We were VERY disappointed by this, gate attendant could clearly see we didn't have dogs with us, told her we did not want to stay the whole day, just do a quick tasting of wines and liquors. After some conversation, and attendant trying to get manager on the phone, she decided to just let us in for free. We were happy about that, however, I feel that their website should say that if you plan on visiting during an event, you will have to pay an additional entrance fee, in addition to the tasting fees. If we had known this, we would have planned our visit for another day, especially since it's quite a drive out here to just go to this place. We were only there for about 1.25 hours, did our tastings, and purchases some wine and liquors. Management, PLEASE update your website to let people know about extra fees during events so you don't make your tourists or potential customers mad.
