Hilton Head Dining
- Written by By Chris Widnel
Summertime brings the pleasure of lazing on the deck with a cold bottle of wine in easy reach and another waiting for dinner. For this month, a lighter wine for sipping and something with a bit more character for the meal.
Wine has been produced on the Iberian Peninsula, now occupied by Spain and Portugal, for more than four millennia, but many of the region’s wines were not very widely distributed until the last couple of decades. Things changed dramatically after the two countries joined the European Union: There was a major influx of capital into the wine industry, and techniques in the vineyards and wineries were improved rapidly. The white wines produced on the Atlantic coast, just north or south of the border between Portugal and Spain, have benefited from these developments, are particularly suited to the summer, and are achieving a deserved popularity.

Dreams really do come true.
Take the story of Steve Carb, for instance. He came to Hilton Head Island as a young man with little money and few prospects. By day he took real estate classes. By night he worked as a bus boy and dishwasher at the Old Fort Pub. Today he owns some of the hottest restaurants in town, including Giuseppi’s Pizza and Pasta, One Hot Mama’s, Frankie Bones, the Black Marlin Bayside Grill & Hurricane Bar, The Lodge and WiseGuys.
