Must see · Winery / Vineyard · Food & Drink
In 1820, three members of the Padgett family settled on the banks of Watermelon Creek and began a legacy that forged its influence on agriculture, business, and spiritual life in Tattnall County for over 150 years. Once the site of a sawmill, grist mill, turpentine still, barrel making, general store, post office, and the Padgett home place, Watermelon Creek Vineyard flourishes as a testimony to the love, labor, and devotion that the Padgett family dedicated to this area. Now, the ninth generation is continuing to carve out a lifestyle that centers on the abundance of the rural lifestyle, agriculture, and business.

The proprietor, Charles Tillman, and his family have restored and occupy the original home and have opened Watermelon Creek Vineyard as a destination venue. The fifteen acre site includes The Barn Yard, The Pond, The Mill House, The Vineyard, Watermelon Creek nature area, and the Winery Complex.

Opened May 24, 2012, Watermelon Creek Vineyard specializes in the production of wines from the muscadine grape and local fruits.

  • So, we randomly googled wineries in the area and stumbled upon this gem. The owners were wonderfully nice. We were not sure what to expect prior to arriving, but the winery is small, charming, and quaint. The tasting was a fantastic experience. The wine itself is muscadine based, so it is generally quite sweet. The owners have incorporated fine dining into their offerings. We had dinner there and the food did not disappoint. It was lovely to see such an upscale dinner available in a small, rural community. We appreciate the small business feel, the down home hospitality, and the overall ambiance of the property. We hope to visit again when passing through the area once more.
  • Happy Day when we found this gem of a place! The owners have an interesting and educational winery and if you can- try their 11-pt wine tasting and plan on lunch while you are there too!
