The beauty of the Grand Strand’s burgeoning wine bar scene is that you have so much freedom to choose.
They’re off the beaten path and also in popular neighborhoods. They’re distinctive, and that adds to the city’s scene. Myrtle Beach is more than calabash shrimp and bike week.
Here are favorite spots to consider when visiting the Grand Strand.
Tips for visiting a wine bar
1. Sample. Reputable wine bars want you to like what you drink. Ask to try anything you’re curious about, within reason. Read the room.
2. Skip fragrances. Don’t wear aftershave, body spray, cologne, or perfume to a wine tasting. It interferes with the senses of everyone around you.
3. Eat first. Even with light sipping, you could get lightheaded in a jiffy. Have a little something for a snack before you go.
