A Note on Ordering Food at Sauer Grapes

Sauer Grapes is first and foremost a wine shop. I do offer a simple menu of breads, spreads, nuts and unique cheeses but I ask that if you would like your food served in a timely manner, please order ahead of time. This is especially true when there are events taking place at nearby venues. I do my best, but for the most part, I’m a one person operation and it can take me a while to prepare even simple menu items when the shop is busy. So please, help me serve you in a timely manner and email ahead at mariedsauer@gmail.com, let me know how many are in your party and what you would like to order. I hate disappointing my customers and this is the easiest way to make sure everyone is happy with their service! — Marie

Please stop by for a glass of wine and complimentary light food bites in support of this evening of “paintings with purpose.” Proceeds will be donated to the Daniel Island School PTA and a portion of all painting sales will be donated to MUSC Hollings Cancer Center.

Our Tasting Room is now available for booking. This intimate, inviting space is perfect for special events like dinner parties and private wine tastings. I can provide heavy hors d’oeuvres or bring in a chef for dinner.


I love learning about special vintages, discovering new labels, finding gems that no one else knows about, and most of all, I love sharing my knowledge of wine!


My shop might not be huge, but my inventory of wine is! It’s a great place to come and explore.

I'll guide you along

The selection at Sauer Grapes can be overwhelming, but I’m happy to help you discover that perfect bottle!

The best prices. Period!

My prices beat the big box stores and the web. I hunt down crazy good deals and bring them to you!

Wine by the glass

At Sauer Grapes Wine Shop, you can enjoy a glass of wine with selections that are constantly updated.  The more expensive glasses are always still really great deals! You can also pick any bottle off the shelf to open.  If you don’t finish it, State law says you can take it home. There is a $6 corkage but I beat everyones’ prices so you can’t drink cheaper anywhere!.

Have a bite

From the classic cheese plate to delicious local foods, you’ll find delightful tapas/gourmet food items that go perfectly with our wines by the glass. You can take some home, too!

Great Events

Wine tastings, holiday celebrations, appearances by well know winemakers — Sauer Grapes Wine Shop always has something going on that makes it fun to learn about wine.

Need help with wine pairings for your dinner party?  I’d love to help!  Just bring in your menu, tell me your target price, and I’ll gladly come up with suggestions.  I’m also happy to do this for appetizer pairings and special events. I can also switch this around and offer food suggestions to go with your favorite wine!

Great jazz, pop, beach tunes— we love to have local bands and singers entertain at Sauer Grapes.
