1)Bowman Vineyards

Bowman Vineyards invites you to experience our unforgettable muscadine wines from our family owned and operated vineyard since 2004. Bowman Vineyards spans 2 locations in Round O, South Carolina. On our Augusta Highway location, wine is produced and bottled. Several varieties of muscadines are grown and harvested on our Oakman Branch Road property. From our abundant harvest, distinctive flavors are derived from the sweet muscadine grapes to produce robust white, red and blush wines.



2)Taste Collection Cellars


Chef Rhonda Russell is an Executive Chef of Wine Arts and Winemaker, owner of Taste Collection Cellars. As the only African-American female to carry this title in the U.S. she works tirelessly to not only teach and educate and demystify food and wine lovers on unique flavor pairings and combinations she is also passionate on educating children on the love of good food.



3)Williams Vineyard and Farm

The Williams Farm in Nesmith has a rich history, and one of its goals (besides producing juicy muscadine grapes) is to educate visitors about early African-American farm life in the rural South. The Rev. Gabriel Williams founded the farm in 1924, where he lived with his wife Mary and 20 kids in one crowded farmhouse as the first generation out of slavery. Today, the Williams Vineyard has won preservation awards for keeping their land and that farmhouse so intact. After his fathera��s passing, David Williams converted the farm from tobacco, cotton, and corn production to muscadine. The Williams make muscadine cider, but you have to go to Nesmith (northeast of Charleston, near Georgetown) to get a taste. Visit the farm for a tour and take home a bucket of grapes.


4)Tilford Winery

Tilford Winery is named after the late Sir Tilford Taylor of Utica, MS. Tilford Winery & Farms is a family owned and operated winery located in Kathleen, GA. Tilford Winery grows Organic Muscadine grapes in its vineyards throughout the Southeastern region of North America. Tilford Winery produces wine & juice. All products are organic.
