We thought we'd be the only people at this remote vineyard, that no one else would trek this far out of Charleston, SC, to taste this wine. But we were mistaken! There was a... read more

Every Sat is sipping Saturdays and they offer up tastings, local music and food via a local food trucks with delicious choices. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and fun! About 4 times a year they will have festivals that offer: several bands playing through out the day, various food vendors, local vendors offering their wares for you to look... More

We visited the vineyard and Firefly distillery in a rainy afternoon. All the staff was very friendly. Just wish we could buy all the options at home!

We had ventured out to find the Firefly Distillery, but we weren't disappointed at all to find a winery too! They were terrific to us and even accommodated my kiddos with delicious homemade grape juice. My super picky 9 yr old loved it so much we bought a bottle of juice too. I am not a super sweet wine drinker... More

Taken several out of town guests here (formerly inver House Vineyards), and all have been pleased with the experience. The wine sampling is a must. Make sure to have a designated driver...they are always generous with the samples

This is a working winery, so if you have ever wanted to see how wine is produced, this is a great place to visit. The tasting was fun and informative, and the whole place is beautiful. We will definitely go back.

We thought we'd be the only people at this remote vineyard, that no one else would trek this far out of Charleston, SC, to taste this wine. But we were mistaken! There was a pleasant-sized crowd enjoying the wine, the spirits from the adjacent Firefly Distillery, a local BBQ food truck, and live entertainment. The wine tasting was casual, but... More

Visited the winery on our last full day in Charleston. It was an enjoyable experience, viewed a winery video on how the grapes are harvested and changed into wine. Most of the wines leaned to sweet but there were a couple dry varieties which I liked. All in all an enjoyable visit.

I enjoyed the wine tasting. Our guide was knowledgeable and gave great recipe tips. All the workers were very friendly. We started with tasting at Firefly Distillery which was excellent as well. Everyone seems to be happy to see you. I would have sworn I did not like Moonshine but one trip to Firefly Distillery proved me wrong. Just wish... More

The Irvin House Vineyards (along with the Firefly distillery) made for an excellent and fun stop on our tour of the Charleston area. My wife and I were looking to escape the usual tourist traps in town and opted to head out on a little day trip. As a tiny disclaimer, neither my wife nor I are wine snobs. We... More
