Located north of Greenville in the Piedmont region of northwestern South Carolina, the "Upstate" or "Upcountry" area is geographically rich, with rolling hills and river valleys, and a climate suitable for farming. A Clemson University study of this property found that elevations, air temperature and moisture content of this property were suitable for viticulture and are comparable to Germany's Rhine River District. The owner was told that approximately thirty acres could be planted and cultivated as a vineyard, providing abundant possibilities for a future goal of viniculture. The irrigation process will benefit from the ample water supplied by the river, lakes and artesian well on the property.
