We enjoyed a large selection of varied wines and free tastings. Our faves were the dry white, the Malbec and the Vintners Blend (we like dry). For something a little sweeter, check out the Peach on the Beach - wasn't syrupy sweet and tasted like fresh peaches. I'd add it to a glass of champagne for an extra powerful peach... More

The wines were pretty ok; the two women working weren't rude but far from friendly. I tried to make a purchase but was ignored at the counter for more than 5 minutes, so no sale for you!

Went to the winery and had a decent time. The wines were good and the fruit wines were surprisingly good. Left with some bottles to take home. The tasting was free. This is a store front selling their own wines but not an actual winery so don't go expecting a full winery experience. Still fun. They also recommended the rum... More

We visited two years ago, and you,d have given them a 5 star for the wine tasting. They have since added a "tasting bar" located as you enter the room. We were forced to stand and sample. Two years ago, we were invited into the cool cask room, which was abuzz with people. It was early Friday evening, and we... More

We apologize that your experience wasn't the same as it was several years ago. Please allow me to explain the tasting bar concept and how it was meant to enhance the experience instead of diminishing it. In the past, you would select 3 wines and go to our barrel room to enjoy those wines with a cheese platter. We felt... More

Tried all their local fruity wines. Delicious, light, & fruity fresh. Great place to spend a couple hours . Must visit while on the island.

It was a dark and stormy.....Monday afternoon, our first full day and not good for the beach at all. Staying at Barony Beach Club, a shuttle took us on the Island Winery Tasting. The drive was just long enough for us to be introduced all around and we easily enjoyed our time together at the Winery. Tasting was nicely done... More

Visitig from northern California wine area (Livermore Valley Wine Country) we were very pleased with the wines, setting and hospitality that Lori gave us. We'll definitely stop in again before we leave the area.

Stopped in today because we have our daughter visiting from Connecticut. The wines we tasted were really good, fruity and served in a quaint room. We didn't go into the barrel room but took a peek and it is lovely. I purchased the Southern Passion (a sangria) and my daughter purchased the Blueberry wine. They have a great peach wine,... More

Being from the heart of wine country in Missouri, we are surrounded by numerous wineries. Most wineries here, while they used to do free wine tastings, now either charge to sample, limit the number of samples or both. So, we were not surprised to see that that we were limited to 6 samples. My disappointment came in the fact that... More
