Mom got a Groupon for 2 wine tastings and 2 drinks at Irvin~House Vineyards on Wadmalaw Island, SC so we went to check it out. We weren’t in it so much for the cheap wine (although that is rarely a bad thing) as we were for getting to check out the entire atmosphere of the place.
|Winery & Firefly Vodka Distillery|
|The buildings were gorgeous. |
They had an old country barn look about them.
|You know it is a cute place when you even want to take a picture of the bathroom.|
|The tasting room inside was not as nice as the outside.|
|Our free wine glasses.|
The Muscadine wine itself was a bit sweet for me so…
|after the tasting we opted for a frozen Winarita instead of choosing a glass of wine.|
|Wine slushee = Delicious.|
My theory is everything in moderation, so I didn’t feel guilty just having one.
|I love the look of grapes growing in wine fields – beautiful.|
|The grounds themselves were great.|
|More Live Oaks with Spanish Moss. |
(You know I love it.)
|The place really was out in the middle of nowhere.|
|Some of their outdoor plants.|
|You have to read this in your goat voice.|
|A little pulley system delivered food you bought (for $0.25) to the goat.|
|The cow couldn’t decide if she wanted to eat her food or lick me.|
|Well hello, funky looking chicken thing.|
Overall it was a great afternoon and I am glad we went. The grounds and wine slushee were by far the best.
Had any of you ever heard of a wine slushee before? It was a great summer drink.
What’s your favorite summer beverage?
