Your Ultimate Guide to Greenville's Wineries, Tasting Rooms & Bottle Shops

Wine(d) Your Way Around Greenville County. First Come, First Served.


 


 

Wineries with Vineyards


 

A small craft winery in the southern Greenville County countryside, City Scape Winery focuses on producing high-quality batches of local, innovative wines. Its dry white muscadine wine was named the “Best Estate-Grown Wine” in the 2019 Palmetto Wine Competition, and no visit is complete without saying hello to Pinot, the winery’s resident pot-bellied pig.
589 Dunklin Bridge Rd., Pelzer


 

Victoria Valley Vineyards’ 47-acre site in northern Greenville County was chosen for its elevation and soil structure, which was perfect for growing and producing its popular Vinifera wines. The European flavors and French-style chateau make for a perfect escape and an excursion you’ll never forget. Enjoy lunch on the terrace, get a group tour of the winery, and try a wine flight.
1360 S. Saluda Rd., Cleveland


 

Wellborn  Winery

Located just north of Travelers Rest, Wellborn Winery was looking for a way to distinguish itself among South Carolina wineries, and it found one. By blending French-American hybrids and native American grapes, it produces a distinctive collection of wines that tastefully articulate the history and nature of the Upstate region’s climate and soil.
254 Mush Creek Rd., Travelers Rest

Eagle Mountain Vineyards & Winery

Scheduled to open in the fall of 2020, Eagle Mountain Vineyards & Winery’s Director of Winemaking, George Bursick, once produced the #1 wine in the world, as rated by Wine Spectator. In addition to growing grapes on its estate in northern Greenville County (along Scenic Hwy 11), the winery also sources grapes from the finest vineyards in California.
2330 SC-11, Landrum


 

Urban Wineries


 


 

For a unique experience without leaving downtown, head over to Urban Wren Winery. With an in-house fermenting and aging production (using grapes sent over from Italy), a creatively paired menu, and even a Chef’s Table Experience, you can savor all that this winery has to offer—no vineyard required.
116 N. Markley St., Greenville (Markley Station)


 


 

[ elevation966 ] Winery

Greenville's first urban winery, elevation966 boasts unique, handmade small-batch wines. This relatively-new-to-the-scene winery is located in The Junction at Greenville Downtown Airport, so you can pair your wine with tacos from the second (and larger) location of White Duck Taco Shop. 
301 Airport Rd. Suite H (The Junction at Downtown Airport)

Winery Tours


 

You could drive yourself around on a self-made winery tour OR you could book a 6-person luxurious SUV or a larger, comfy 11-passenger van and let the Van in Black (who specialize in winery tours) do the driving for you. Wine tasting is a lot more fun with a group and when you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving. Cruise around in style as your knowledgeable driver takes you to all the wineries you desire—and stores all your wine purchases (and sides of cheese?) in the extra storage space. [Cue Music: "Here come the Van in Black... " 🎼]

Let your guide, Steven Leslie, show you his vast wealth of knowledge about the history of Upstate South Carolina. This all-inclusive, all-day upscale tour does provide you with wine and cheese in the mountains at Victoria Valley Vineyards, as well as lunch at The Lighthouse Restaurant on gorgeous Lake Keowee! The Blue Ridge Wanderer Tour is about so much more than just food and wine, though—learn all kinds of history, visit cool small towns, see beautiful panoramic views at area lakes, waterfalls, state parks, and other natural attractions, and end the evening at one of Greenville's oldest (and yummiest!) restaurants.
864.712.0509; This tour is held on Thursdays, once or twice per month. ​


 

Tasting Rooms & Bottle Shops

 

Greenville's local wine shops and wine tasting rooms offer a vast selection of vino that would make any wine lover fall head over heels (but just be sure to get an Uber if you get too head over heels).

 

At Northampton Wine + Dine, one of downtown Greenville’s mainstays, you can buy wine, drink wine, and get a meal to accompany your wine. And if your selection is unavailable? The knowledgeable staff stands ready to recommend an alternative that may well become your new favorite.

Sweet Sippin'

Sweet Sippin’ is all about local. In Simpsonville, Sweet Sippin’ is part-winery, part-brewery, and part-gift shop filled with items crafted by local artisans. Throw in live music and events, and you have a unique and memorable local gem.​ At Gather GVL, Sweet Sippin' specializes in wine flights, mimosas, and desserts!

Wine House

What do you get when you pair a seasoned sommelier and an avid wine collector? Wine House, a shop and tasting room on Haywood Road that offers a creative and relaxing environment to savor a glass of wine, sit and enjoy a bottle with friends, or discover a new favorite to take home.
475 Haywood Rd., #8
 

The Tasting Room of Travelers Rest

The entire premise of The Tasting Room of TR is to make artisan wine more accessible and less intimidating. It does so by providing a place where people can not only buy wine (and craft beer), but also learn about it through educational wine tasting events.
164 S. Main St. Suite C, Travelers Rest

With an eclectic and extensive selection of wines by the glass, a wide tasting menu, and the ability to buy any bottle of wine on their shelves at retail prices (with no additional corkage fees or restaurant-level margins), downtown’s Foxcroft Wine Co. takes the risk out of trying something new. When combined with their from-scratch kitchen, Foxcroft offers an ample variety of items to tempt your tastebuds!
631 S. Main St.
 

SIP Whiskey & Wine Bar

SIP Whiskey & Wine Bar offers an unrivaled combination—a lively, full-service bar with wine by the glass and an impressive view of the center of downtown from its rooftop location overlooking ONE City Plaza.
103 N. Main St., #400
