There are not too many places like the Upstate of South Carolina! It is an amazing place and you are missing one of America’s greatest cities if you have never experienced Greenville South Carolina. This is not just our opinion either, Greenville is consistently ranked as one of the top cities in the nation and has received numerous awards over the years. All of this is for very good reason too!

The food and wine scene inside the city is amazing with numerous top rated restaurants (with phenomenal wine lists!) and dozens of wine specific destinations both inside the city or just outside. Greenville also has options for folks who like either sweet or traditional dry wines in addition to a number of beer and cider options.

A Typical Wine Tour…
Depending on the type and style of wine that your group enjoys, a typical tour from Greenville will either stay in South Carolina or it may also visit some of the wineries just over the border in North Carolina. There are two clusters of wineries in North Carolina (Tryon and Hendersonville) that are worth checking out if you enjoy traditional dry style wines. We typically mix these with a few of the South Carolina wineries close to the border like Eagle Mountain and/or Kennington Family Winery. A few things to note about tours from Greenville:
- There is going to be a bit of a commute to get to the vineyards outside the city. This can be 45-50 minutes but is worth the drive as you will visit the beautiful farms with rows of vines. The nice thing is that the vineyards are usually close to each other so once you arrive in the area there isn’t much drive time between the vineyards.
- Food options are available at most of the areas either through food trucks or established kitchens. We can help with this and are happy to make suggestions.
- As mentioned earlier, Greenville has offerings for both sweet and dry wines so we can help create the perfect itinerary for your group!
