Deep Water is a name with many meanings, first and foremost you'll hear the term deep water in the Lowcountry as coveted access beyond the pluff mud of the marsh. We also, honestly, as owners of a winery feel a little bit overwhelmed so you could say we're in deep water.
But really, if you pressed Jesse or Andrea, they would say that the name "Deep Water" embodies their view of this short life. That we are not meant to wade in the shallows of the shore, but are meant to dive deep and maybe feel the weight of water over your head and depth of water beneath your feet, but ultimately know you've tried something bigger than yourselves - and, if you're truly fortunate, float satisfactorily on top of the deep for awhile.
The wine itself is the only truly native grape to the US, and we embrace it. Remaining true to our predecessors Southern roots, we grow muscadine grapes, a fruit native to the Southeastern United States. We produce authentic muscadine wine, five different labels from four varieties of grapes (we've provided the Irvin-House Vineyard name for ease of finding your favorite). We are hoping to offer some drier options soon so expect some of these to change or for our offerings to expand:
Previously known as "Mullet Hall". Our dry red wine, made with the Ison Muscadine grape, is fruity and fully flavored; try it while enjoying your favorite low-country farm to table fare.
Previously known as "Palmetto". Our light-bodied red wine, made from the Noble grape, has a robust Muscadine flavor and nose; making it perfect to enjoy while watching the tide roll in.
Previously known as "Tara Gold". Our semi-dry smooth white wine is made from the Tara Scuppernong grape - best enjoyed sittin' on the dock of the bay, you know... wastin' time.
Previously known as "Magnolia". This sweet white wine is made from the Carlos Scuppernong grape; this wine reminds us of kicking your shoes off and enjoying an endless summer.
Deep Water Blend
Previously known as "Live Oak Reserve". Uniquely created each year, this wine showcases the versatility of our grapes; enjoy early and often, there's more next year.
