This wasn't on the original plan, but I am so glad we made it out there. Only 6.00 for a tasting, knowledgeable servers and a great atmosphere. We brought two bottles of their Lemonade Vodka home and will definitely be back

Love coming here for years - the vodkas can't be beat and the muscadine wines are pretty great too. The atmosphere is always so laid back and I enjoy spending an afternoon here tasting and enjoying the scenery.

If you go to their website, it lists on a map where their products are sold. I tried to post the link but I am unable to. Just google firefly vodka and click the 'find the fly' tab at the top of their page. :)
