Growing Grapes in South Carolina

South Carolina’s varying climatic conditions are the biggest difficulties that the region’s grape growing industry has to overcome. This part of America has a hot and sub-tropical climate and hurricanes often occur during growing season. Snow and sleet also occur as often as three times every year and more heavily at elevated sites. Presently, there are only six wineries and vineyards in the state. Vintners in this area are very diligent in taking care of their grapes, pruning their vines to protect them from the direct heat and sunlight bearing down on them. Muscadine grapes are the best variety to grow in South Carolina since this type of grapes flourish in hot climates and need less time to cool.
