Sip and stroll through a southern afternoon

There is a peace about Middleton Place that is hard to match. Just after crossing the border between Charleston and Summerville, the right side of old highway 61 opens up to manicured pastures, massive live oaks and long lines of elegantly simple fencing. It doesn’t take much to encourage anyone who has been to Middleton Place once to make the short trip back, but if you’ve never visited this partially working plantation, the staff at Middleton Place is offering an excellent reason to drop by. Every Wednesday from 5:30pm – 7pm from now until the end of November, Middleton Place is holding wine tastings under the oaks. For only $10, oenophiles, history buffs and those that just enjoy catching sunsets across the marsh grasses and glassy surface of the Ashley River can enjoy a selection of eight to ten wines in the formal front lawn of Middleton Place. After sipping through the samples, attendees are invited to walk the gardens at no cost.

Wine Stroll participants are urged to extend their evening with dinner at the Middleton Place Restaurant, which features a nice selection of entrees and appetizers prepared with local produce, and a significant wine collection of their own.
