South Carolina Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of South Carolina? Then look for a a South Carolina Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local South Carolina wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. South Carolina has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Spartanburg, Seneca, Myrtle Beach
and Bennettsville, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of SC wines. Many specialize in fine SC wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like April Wine Festival in Myrtle
Beach, Annual Int'l Festival of Wines & Food in Columbia in
February, or Charleston Food and Wine Festival in March, you may
find wines from Victoria Valley Vineyards, Carolina Vineyards Winery,
Irvin House Vineyards, and many others at South Carolina wine festivals.
In addition to wine, these events can include excellent food to
sample, prepared by local restaurants and chefs. And often you can
expect music too. After all, nothing pairs better with wine than
a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music. Local musicians are out playing
their best music to accompany the wine tasting. Whether you're visiting
Columbia, Aiken, Charleston and Hilton Head you can find a local
wine, food and music festival that will perfect your SC vacation.
The most popular time of year for these festivals are the Fall and
Summer months, but they are also scheduled during holiday months
as well. Imagine sipping some great wines while watching the annual
Christmas Tree lighting ceremony! So although, you may not have
time to visit all of South
Carolina's great wineries, you can taste their wines at these
great events. So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries
is here to help you find exciting wine, food and music festivals
