If you enjoy a glass of wine (or a bottle), a Kiawah Island stay makes the perfect way to indulge. 

Its all about making choices at the Forty-eight Wine Bar & Kitchen in Freshfields Village, which serves 48 wines by the glass every day. Guests select from three tasting sizes; a one-ounce, three-ounce, or six-ounce. You can also pick up a bottle to go from the retail side, which has over 1,000 labels of every major variety and wine region in the world. There is something for everyone at Forty-eight Wine Bar, including amazing cuisine to enjoy with your vino.

The Lobby Bar at The Sanctuary Hotel offers a top-notch wine selection right on the island. Sip your wine by the fireplace or on the patio where you can hear the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. While the drinks are on the pricey side, youre also paying for an amazing ambiance. 

Heges, a French bistro at Freshfields Village, also offers an extensive wine list. The wait staff makes this place stand out for its welcoming and friendly atmosphere. They also provide fantastic wine recommendations. Be sure to reserve a table at this popular spot. 

For a low-key choice close to your property, head to Saveurs Du Monde Cafe at Seabrook Island. The French-style cafe serves white, red, and bubbly by the glass and by the bottle. Their menu includes dishes made with the freshest ingredients, along with fresh pastries and coffees. 

At Somm Wine Bar and Bistro on Johns Island, its about more than wine. Its about creating memories with the people who sit around the table with you. Somm offers a beautiful space where you can get a taste with a wine flight or a nightly pour. You can also order by the glass or bottle; or take a bottle back to your Kiawah Island vacation property. The charcuterie, cheese, and side plates perfectly complement the drinks. 

Another great little spot on Johns Island is The Woodruff. Tucked in a little corner in the Live Oak Square shopping center off of Maybank Highway, The Woodruff has a vast collection of wines by the glass, plus bottles, bubbly and cocktails. Theyve also curated a menu of small, fun-share plates with a variety of cheese and charcuterie choices, and a menu of unique entrees.

Pick up a bottle or two and end each day of a Kiawah Island vacation with a nice glass of wine on your deck or balcony. Salute!
