Visit & Taste
Tiger Mountain Vineyards
Tiger Mountain Vineyards, nestled on a rocky hillside in Rabun County, produces award-winning, European-style wines in 10 hand-picked varieties, including Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Viognier.
Next, journey to Crane Creek Vineyards, where you can see, taste and enjoy the grapes grown right on the property, located in the shadow of Georgia’s highest peak, Brasstown Bald. The tasting room is housed in a historic farmhouse, and inquisitive guests may arrange a private vintner’s tour with a staff winemaker.
Another worthy stop on your wine tour is Habersham Vineyards & Winery, which produces some of the finest award-winning Georgia wines. Just a half-mile from the charming Alpine-themed village of Helen, it is open daily for self-guided tours and complimentary tastes of Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
With so many terrific wineries, an equally terrific meal is a must. Wolf Mountain Vineyards & Winery in Dahlonega offers a decadent Sunday brunch buffet (with a different theme every month), a cozy vineyard cafe for lunches Thursdays through Saturdays, and occasional winemaker dinners.
Complete your romantic wine-tasting adventure with a night at Glen-Ella Springs Inn & Restaurant, a historic, rustic bed and breakfast offering warm hospitality, a sparkling pool and outstanding food at the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
