The Vineyard Experience – We’d love to have you visit! When you do, we have lots for you to experience. We have an entire 48 acres for you to explore on your own, with friends or loved ones, or as a family.
A local and visitor favorite, we grow and harvest the grapes as well as make and bottle our wines all on site. We offer 2 varietals from California and then blend those with 2 muscadines as well, for a total of 9 wines. You’ll find us about 30 minutes south of Charleston, on the sleepy island of Wadmalaw. Our vineyard offers walking trails, many animals to get to know, a garden, a large pond, the winery (of course),
Prepare to spend a few hours, or a full day enjoying a walk through the vines; or take advantage of our affordable and informative wine tastings. Whether you’re a large group or intimate couple, the vineyard has plenty of things to do.
We encourage families to bring picnics along with blankets and chairs so you can sit back and truly relax. Animals are allowed to visit us as long as they are leashed.
Your Party – Call us to discuss your gathering. Whether the occasion is celebrated over a wine tasting and tour, or perhaps your plan involves a larger gathering “under the oaks,” whatever the case, we are experts in “wine inspired” celebrations.
Call us today to discuss and book your private party.
Private Tours – In addition to our winery tours, we are proud to offer different types of tours and transportation to accommodate you and your guests. Ask us about our Sip & See Tour, Tipsy Tour, and our Wadmalaw Wanderings.

The History and our Wine – Deep Water is a name with many meanings, first and foremost you’ll hear the term deep water in the Lowcountry as coveted access beyond the pluff mud of the marsh.
You’ve known our address at the end of Bears Bluff Road as “Irvin House Vineyard” for over a decade. The original owner’s retirement plans soon transitioned into the lifelong dream of Jesse and Andrea and the new name Deepwater Vineyards.
Nestled among the majestic live oaks on Charleston’s back porch of Wadmalaw Island, this 48-acre winery and vineyard has something for everyone. We are the only domestic winery in Charleston, South Carolina and should be on the top of your list when visiting the Lowcountry.
The wine itself is the only truly native grape to the US, and we embrace it. Remaining true to our predecessor’s Southern roots, we grow muscadine grapes, a fruit native to the Southeastern United States. We produce authentic muscadine wine, five different labels from four varieties of grapes. We are excited to have you try them all.
