I visited the Island Winery during a recent visit to Hilton Head. While I had heard about the winery before, this was my first visit. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a little hard to find, but I'm glad I did! Great little tasting bar with up to 5 free tastings. My favorite was the Harvest White, but I also... More

Stopped by to sample some of the local wines. Very enjoyable. Sampled 6 reds. My husband and I ended up enjoying a glass each and bought a bottle. They need to do something about the mosquitos in their "dining" area though. Got several bites.

We visit Hilton head often and love to stop by the winery. We enjoy the variety of tastings. This year we enjoyed the merlot. We purchased a bottle and had a plate of cheese and crackers. Fun

Very friendly, knowledgable employees. Good wines for a small facility. A bit pricier than other small wineries we've visited in other locations. Enjoyed the cheese plate and wine after our tasting and enjoyed visiting with some other couples there for a tasting as well!

Very relaxing and enjoyable, I really enjoyed the Merlot and the Zinfandel. Generous pours, friendly staff and reasonably priced wine for a small operation.

They import grapes from mostly southern growers, and crush and process them on site. Free tastings are offered (you can try up to 5), and you are free to visit the barrel room. We bought a bottle to have with dinner.

Great place to taste some great wine. They don't have a 'tour' but Kathy was fabulous and gave lots of information about the winery and their process. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Lorie was great also. Definitely stop by and sip some wine.... I bought a bottle too.

My wife and I were a little disappointed when we went to taste there wines. It had nothing to do the wine, we ended up buying half a case. The staff serving us was not as friendly as we expected. We were the only ones in the store, it was as if we were interrupting them doing nothing. My wife... More
