With three pour size options, trying new and exciting wines has never been more convenient! You won’t want to miss out on this unique tasting room.

Take a #Selfie
Head over to Village Green and snap a photo (or ten!) at the official Freshfields Selfie Wall. The Selfie Wall isn't the only Instagram-worthy locale at the Village, though! Other popular photo spots include the famous Green Grass furniture, the lakeside dock, or the courtyard fountain near Hege's.
Create a Custom Candle
With an appointment at Palmetto Scent Studio's Fragrance Bar, you can create your very own custom scented candle. Enjoy selecting your favorite combination of scents from the expansive fragrance wall, design your candle label, and mix your selected oils. Not a fan of candles? No problem! Ask about other options, like body and home fragrance products.
