South Carolina’s first winery reopens

Silver Dew Winery of Daufuskie Island was the first registered winery in the state before closing in 1956 when owner Papy Burn retired. More than six decades later — and a little delay thanks to Hurricane Irma — Silver Dew has reopened. Daufuskie’s rich soil, which includes a mix of sand and salt, gives the wine a distinct flavor, though visitors will have to wait a little longer to sample it: Currently, the winery is producing bottles of wine using pressed and frozen Oregon grapes. Owner Wick Scurry expects to harvest the first Daufuskie-grown grapes next year.
