“Don't waste your time or your money”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Maybe my friend, visiting from VA, and I went on a bad day, but the guy running the place was completely overwhelmed. He quickly poured our wine tasting selections. Did not provide any information about the wines. Once or twice asked "how was it". I don't necessary think it was his fault that he was distraction; he was ringing people up at the cash register, pouring wine, checking people out who had made purchases, etc. It was extremely busy in there, so maybe they need to hire more help???

One thing that very much concerned me, other than the lack of experiencing a real wine tasting, was that passed around chocolate chunks from an opened Hershey's bar that was in the fridge. When he went to put the chocolate bar back in the fridge, it...an OPENED chocolate bar...fell to the floor, he picked it up and put it back in the fridge door.

Slightly less concerning was the Pawn Shop feel I felt as soon as I saw the place of business.

My overall feeling...Very disappointed. I don't see how this wine tasting room stays in business.

I DO recommend the actual Silver Coast Winery in Ocean Isle. I believe the actual owners run it and IT is WORTH the stop.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

Went in out of curiosity to do a tasting. Absolutely blown away by the experience and quality of wine.

The tasting was through, informative, inviting, and fun! I was with my girlfriend and we both had a great time.

Absolutely would recommend going in for a tasting. The wine is awesome.

“Perfect Sunday in Southport”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

My fiancé and I stumbled upon this Wine Store/Art Gallery while walking around. David was opening for business and couldn't have been more inviting and sincere. We sat down for a wine tasting and were blown away with not only the quality of the wine, but Davids knowledge and personality. Before we knew it locals and other frequent visitors showed up and we all "strangers" had a blast.

The pairings and choices along with a beer tasting are untouched in comparison with other tasting we have done. We left with wine and other art that is also for sale and will defiantly be back! I think we have found the perfect Sunday drive destination!

Thanks for a great time!

“Dedicated wine makers, friendly. Great wine choices”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

They have a great tasting room, with many choices of their wines. I especially enjoyed them giving the glass I used to me as a souvenir of my visit. Wines are reasonably priced and well made. GO THERE, you will be glad you did!
