Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, remains an unquestionably alluring coastal haven for families, couples, and groups alike. There’s no denying that this seaside paradise has the East Coast’s premier collection of championship golf courses, head-turning attractions, and fee-free conveniences. And the best way to commemorate a stellar day of aquatic adventure, birdie putts, and mouthwatering coastal cuisine is by visiting a top-reviewed Myrtle Beach winery. Sand Dunes Resort, home to the region’s most exclusive water park, is only a short drive from a handful of beloved South Carolina wineries, including the oft-visited Duplin Winery and La Belle Amie Vineyard.

Before or after a brief stint on Restaurant Row, at a nearby museum, or under the sea, plan a relaxing trip to a top-rated Myrtle Beach winery. There are nearly a dozen wineries near Myrtle Beach, including several vineyards and tasting rooms across the border in North Carolina. However, these five selections perfectly embody the essence of a classic Carolina winery.

Duplin Winery, North Myrtle Beach, SC

The most-visited Myrtle Beach winery remains Duplin, whose home base is in Rose Hill, NC. Duplin opened a second location in picturesque North Myrtle Beach in 2015. The impressive, 15,000-square-foot facility features a 28-foot-tall replica of the Cape Hatteras Light Station, which is an ode to its North Carolina roots. Duplin’s Barefoot Landing locale helps draw hundreds of thousands of thirsty patrons each year.

La Belle Amie Vineyard, Little River, SC

For true backcountry vineyard ambiance, we always recommend La Belle Amie, the pride of Little River. Little River, of course, is celebrated for its salt marshes, but it’s now home to both a distillery (Twelve 33) and a quaint, peaceful vineyard. Enjoy a vino sampler of Twisted Sisters’ finest vino this summer amid lush grapevines and towering trees at La Belle Amie.

Carolina Vineyards Winery, North Myrtle Beach, SC

Carolina Vineyards, much like Duplin, rests near the serene Intracoastal Waterway inside North Myrtle Beach’s Barefoot Landing. This elegant tasting room is an idyllic spot to savor fine wine after a hearty meal, boat ride, or live performance. Most of the labels are in-house varietals, such as the Rock Step fruit wine or Tropical Paradise, a pineapple white grape wine.

Coastal Wine Boutique, Myrtle Beach, SC

If you’re hoping to make a quick pit stop at a petite wine bar along Ocean Boulevard, we highly recommend Coastal Wine Boutique on 21st Avenue. The sleek tasting room features many shades of crimson, a striking checkered countertop, and a variety of beautifully-plated delicacies. Locals often slink into the wine bar to try an exotic new hookah flavor.

Grapefull Sisters Vineyard, Tabor City, NC

There are only a handful of true vineyards within driving distance of the boardwalk. Luckily for you, the short, scenic trek to Grapefull Sisters Vineyard is bound to be a highlight of your weekend in paradise. This classic “Myrtle Beach” winery crafts some of the tastiest coastal wine in the Carolinas. Grapefull Sisters’ countryside ambiance is the perfect way to cap a day of championship golf.
