There are approximately 12 vineyards in South Carolina. While enjoying the Kiawah/Seabrook/Wadmalaw areas, I stopped in at Deep Water Vineyards. Nestled among the majestic live oaks on Charleston's back porch of Wadmalaw Island, this 48-acre winery and vineyard has something for everyone.
Deep Water is a name with many meanings, first and foremost you'll hear the term deep water in the Lowcountry as coveted access beyond the pluff mud of the marsh.
They grow and harvest the grapes as well as make and bottle their wines all on site. You'll find them about 30 minutes south of Charleston, on the sleepy island of Wadmalaw. The vineyard offers walking trails, many animals to get to know, a garden, a large pond, and of course, the winery.
Remaining true to their predecessors Southern roots, they grow muscadine grapes, a fruit native to the Southeastern United States. I just love the wine names…..Low Country Red, Low Tide, High Tide, Deep Water Red and High Tide.
