Charleston Tea Plantation
Charleston South Carolina is home to America’s only Tea Plantation. Hundreds of thousands of tea bushes spread out along the land on beautiful Wadmalaw Island in the heart of the lowcountry. The land on Wadmalaw Island provides the perfect conditions for the Camellia Sinensis tea plant. This specific tea plant is used to create black and green teas and is present in over 320 varieties on the 127 acres of the Charleston Tea Plantation. For tea lovers this is a dream come true. Visitors will lean first-hand how tea is made from a Factory Tour and visit the Plantation Gift Shop with a wide variety of tea-related gifts.
Deep Water Winery
Deep Water Winery is a 48 acre winery and vineyard located on Wadmalaw Island. This vineyard has something for everyone. It is the only domestic winery in Charleston South Carolina and it is a local and visitor favorite. Deep Water produces authentic muscadine wine with five different labels from four different varieties of grapes. Muscadine grapes are native to the Southeastern United States and Deep Water Vineyard prides itself in using these US native grapes. The vineyard offers walking trails, a garden, pond, winery, and gift shop. It is the perfect spot to take a stroll under the oaks, indulge in a wine tasting, or meet “Irish” and “Luca”, the resident winery pups .
