Wineries & Vineyards
Brunswick Wine Mini-Trail: Coast
Two Wineries, Distance Of 14.9 Miles – These two NC Wine stops, just minutes away from the popular Brunswick County destinations of Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach, offer a relaxing diversion from the sun, sand and golf of the coast.
The Silver Coast Winery sits on a 40-acre site surrounded by lush woods, and offers a wide variety of wine as well as an art gallery filled with paintings and sculptures. The Grapefull Sisters Vineyard promotes both its peaceful setting in southeastern Columbus County and the health benefits of its native muscadine wines. Grapefull Sisters also has the Inn d’Vine Bed & Breakfast and Carroll Woods Campground for those who decide to stay awhile.
