There is a very cool locally owned vineyard in Little River, SC, near Myrtle Beach. The property has been in the same family for generations, and some of their grapevines are 130+ years old!
Delivering a relaxed chill vibe, La Belle Amie is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine on their well-maintained grounds and listen to a local musician or band play. Seating is under covered cabanas, on covered decks, on open patios, and on grassy knolls under the trees. Fans and heaters help guests stay cool or warm, depending on the season.
Wine Wednesdays on the Decks: Enjoy an afternoon on the decks and under the cabanas with live music, a little wine, some tasty outdoor cooking, and lots of friendly folks. Admission is just $3 but you must purchase your tickets online prior to the event. Don’t ruin your afternoon by showing up and not being able can’t get in! They have capacity limits. You have to have a ticket. Add a wine tasting (six Twisted Sister wines) for an additional $7. Get your tickets here.
Festival Saturdays: Every Saturday, La Belle Amie puts on a themed afternoon music event. Big Band Music, Oldies Under the Oaks, and Parrot Head Fest Redux are a few of the upcoming sounds this season. Relax in the beautiful outdoor venue, meet lots of friendly folks, and enjoy your favorite wines, beers, beverages, and festival foods from their outdoor concessions areas. Tickets are $10 online ($15 at the gate – not recommended as some events sell out quickly) and you can add a wine tasting to your day for $7. Purchase your tickets here.
The Wine and Gift Shop: The trademarked wine produced at La Belle Amie Vineyard is Twisted Sisters Wine and can be purchased by the bottle onsite in their large wine and gift shop. Artwork, humourous signage, beach souvenirs, Christmas decor, wine glassware and accessories, holiday gifts, and much more are offered.
