The Perfect Place to Socialize
In the past, one of the main centers of recreation for any seaside port was the local tavern. Taverns provided a warm place to stay for traveling sailors and tradespeople, while also offering a place to drink and socialize. Today’s bars and breweries still serve the same purpose as the taverns of old. Silver Coast Winery’s Southport tasting room, provides Southport locals with a fantastic place to beat the summer heat, relax, watch a game, and try some of the best beer and wine you can find.
A History Born from Passion
Located on S. Howe Street just a block away from the waterfront, the Southport tasting room for Silver Coast Winery has been a fixture in the local eye for quite some time. The original location first began life due to owners Dr. “Bud” and Maryann Azzato’s passion for wine and sharing a good time with friends. After purchasing equipment from another winery that was going out of business in Massachusetts, they established their primary location in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Eventually, demand was high enough for them to establish a second tasting room located in the heart of downtown Southport.
Plenty of Wine
Due to the hot and humid climates down South, most growers are not able to create traditional wines in the European style. Instead, Southerners have come to rely on the sweet taste of Muscadine and Scuppernong grapes to make wine. The result is a wine that’s refreshing and perfect for the warm weather we’re accustomed to. Visitors to the Southport tasting room can wet their whistle with a delectable variety of local wines, all aged to perfection. The wines you’ll find featured here have won over 400 different awards both on the national and international scene.
But the Southport location of Silver Coast Winery isn’t just for wine lovers, it’s for beer aficionados too! There’s a sizeable taproom inside, featuring everything from Trappist beers like Chimay to local favorites like Edward Teach Brewery. There are items to try fresh from the tap or in bottles. Whatever your tastebuds prefer, you can guarantee the bartenders at Silver Coast Winery can find something that you’ll like.
