Touring and Tasting at North Georgia Wineries

Written by

North Georgia is known for its mountain ranges, seasonal flowers, national forests, festivals and a nearly unlimited menu of attractions, outdoor recreational options, and much more. One of the most tasteful activities available in the North Georgia region is experiencing the flavor and bouquet of locally grown grapes at area wineries.

North Georgia Wine Regions

Like choosing a fine wine, North Georgia offers a diverse selection of flavorful vineyards and wineries eagerly waiting to please your palate. From rich Merlot and light Chardonnay to smooth Cabernet Sauvignon the choice is yours as you travel the beautiful highways, byways and less traveled back roads in Rabun, White, Lumpkin, Gilmer, Towns, and Union counties. Enjoy a day trip, weekend getaway, or an extended adventure traversing the lush landscape while savoring the flavor of the north Georgia wine culture.

Open year-round, enjoy the robust flavors of the homegrown grapes in the tasting room from 1:00 to 5:00 pm during the week and 11:00 am to 6:00 pm on Saturday. Depending on the time of year you visit, the chef at the vineyard's Red Barn Cafe serves delectable cuisine for lunch, brunch and dinner.
