2002. The doors of Silver Coast Winery open for business with a lot of sweat, dirt and hard work to renovate the ole' girl. Somethin' good got to fermenting.
2000. A big ole' piece of property on Barbeque Road was purchased and the vision of a winery was born. Maryann's childhood dream became a reality.

1994. Maryann meets Dr. Bud...it was love at first sight. They got hitched and the Azzato's were born.
Silver Coast wines are modeled after traditional, European styles. We also produce wines using hybrid grapes such as our signature Seyval Blanc and Traminette. All of our wines are dry to semi-dry aged in traditional oak barrels or stainless tanks depending upon the varietal. Our winery offers full tours of our production facility along with daily wine tastings of your choice. From American Oak Chardonnay to White Merlot and Touriga, we are sure to have a wine that perfectly pairs with your palate. Both of our locations offer cheese plates for purchase to enjoy with our wines or you are welcome to pack a picnic of your own to bring along!
Maryann Daley was born. She watched her dad make wine throughout her childhood and it was love at first taste.
