La Belle Amie Vineyard is an operating vineyard in Little River, SC that features local music festivals, wine tours and tastings, an assortment of local foods, and the calming experience of relaxing on the front porch of a southern farm.
The idea for La Belle Amie Vineyard was Vicki’s, the owner of the vineyard. She moved to the 38 acre farm in 1993 to take care of her aunt and Vicki began making her idea a reality. In 1995 she had arranged for the clearing of fields and the planting of Vineyard #1. In the spring of 1996, vineyard #2 was trellised and planted. Sadly the next few years didn’t bode well weather wise for the vineyards being constantly hit with hurricanes. The vineyards finally began to flourish in 2001 and the winery started becoming what we know it as today.
The vineyard sells its wines under the label of Twisted Sisters and offer 17 varieties. La Belle Amie offers wine tastings Monday – Saturday from 10am-5:30pm. You may sample any 6 wines of your choice for only $5 (includes wine glass.) And don’t forget every Wednesday is Wine Wednesday which means they offer 1/2 price wine tastings all day.
La Belle Amie also has great local live music festivals, so enjoy a nice afternoon of local musicians and wine. Try one of their flavorful wine slushies, and enjoy the beauty of the vineyard, or browse the great gift shop.
