The La Belle Amie Vineyard is home of Twisted Sisters wine. They grow muscadine grapes on property and it is a must visit in Myrtle Beach.

I went to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, for a press trip and was contacted by Vicki, owner of La Belle Amie Vineyard, to visit. My husband, Blake, joined me. 

Blake and I showed up on a Friday afternoon to a beautiful venue, live music, great wine, and an incredibly friendly staff. We spent a week in Myrtle Beach and this was our favorite activity during our trip. 

The La Belle Amie Vineyard is the best hidden gem in the Myrtle Beach Area.

History

The vineyard property has been in the Bellamy family since the 1800s, when it was a tobacco plantation. In the late 1990s Vicki was working her way up the corporate ladder when she quit her job and moved back home to take care of her mother, Berta. Somewhere along the way, Vicki got the idea to start a winery. She fought to get where she is today, enduring a rough start and numerous natural disasters. She chose the name “La Belle Amie” to honor her family’s name. It means “the beautiful friend” and is of European descent.

The La Belle Amie Vineyard is the home of Twisted Sisters wine. Vicki chose this name because she did not want her wines to be intimidating. Twisted Sisters is fun and something that a lot can humorously relate to. The bottles’ labels are colorful and fun, which I loved.

Muscadine grapes are grown on the property and the vineyard is quite lovely.

Tasting Room

Our wine tasting was a lot of fun. Susanne was excellent! She kept us entertained the whole time. Between the two of us, we tried Sweet Carolina Girl, Ice Queen, Beachin’ Babes, Bikini Blush, Angel of the Morning, Island Mama, Sweet and Sassy, Sweet Baby Blues, and Classy Lady. Sweet Baby Blues was our favorite.

La Belle Amie wants each guest to enjoy wine in their own way. Not everybody enjoys the same kind of wine, and the winery is very understanding of this. I am not a wine person, but I did not feel overwhelmed during our wine tasting. I felt right at home and had a great experience.

Tastings take place Monday-Friday and non-festival Saturdays from 10AM-6PM. For $3 you can sample different wines and you can keep the wine glass for $2 more. On Wednesdays, tastings are 1/2 price.

Live Music

The La Belle Amie Vineyard features live music throughout the week: Wine Wednesdays, Oldies Thursdays, and Wine Down Fridays. Two Saturdays a month, the winery has festivals bringing in over 1,000 people. All you need to bring is a chair; food and wine are available for purchase. 

The winery has an “our porch is your porch” philosophy and wants all guests to feel welcome. Whether you want to enjoy the live music, socialize with friends, or read a book on the front porch, Vicki wants you to enjoy your time at the winery. The property is absolutely beautiful and very relaxing.

Wine Shop

In the shop, you can find all of The Twisted Sisters wines, gifts, and wine accessories. It is definitely worth checking out; they have some really neat things!

If you are a frequent visitor of the La Belle Amie Vineyard, join their Festival Club. You will gain admission to all festivals, receive a wine glass and t-shirt or bottle of wine, get a percentage off all wine purchases, and a plethora of other great benefits.

Southern Hospitality

Ms. Vicki was the perfect hostess! She was warm, welcoming, and made Blake and I feel right at home. This was truly Southern Hospitality at its finest. We saw Vicki mingling with all of her winery’s guests and my guess is that she knows every one of them. Blake and I wish that we lived closer so we could visit again.

If you live in the Myrtle Beach Area, sign up for the Festival Club and take advantage of all that La Belle Amie has to offer. And if you are visiting Myrtle Beach, stop by on one of the days that the vineyard has live music; you will not regret it.

I would like to thank Ms. Vicki for inviting Blake and I to her beautiful winery. We had a blast!
