Who doesn’t love WINE?! On the way down to a Savannah bachelorette party a few weekends ago my car stopped by September Oaks winery. If you’re on I-95 South to Savannah and take the Ridgeland exit, you’re basically there.
The tasting was $6. The $6 didn’t include the glass, but the nice lady there let us keep ours because we asked and were on a bachelorette weekend. You get to taste all of their wines like Carolina Wren Red, Crescent Moon White, Kiwi Gold White, Palmetto Red Wine, Peach Sunrise White, Yellow Jasmine White, and a few more. The names are fun, but they didn’t taste as good as they sound. VERY sugary-even for muscadine wine. They’re a new winery, and it seemed like they’re still working out the kinks. I bought the Palmetto (a red wine that you drink chilled or with ice cubes) because it tasted the best and was in a pretty bottle.
After the wine tasting, we brought our picnic lunch to the outdoor tables and had a bottle of wine with our croissants. So fun! The picnic tables were really clean and were right beside the little vineyard and the main building so it was a good spot to take some pics. There was even a little fire pit with chairs that would be great to use in the fall. I would definitely have a party like a rehearsal dinner or wedding reception there.
I wouldn’t drive down just for a wine tasting, but I would definitely stop by again on the way to Savannah! They are open Tuesday through Friday from 1-6PM and Saturdays from 12-6PM. Check out the September Oaks website here: http://septemberoaks.com/
