Best North Georgia Wineries

From beautiful tasting rooms to breathtaking vineyard vistas, there’s no wrong way to enjoy North Georgia Wine.

Montaluce Winery & Restaurant

One of my favorite spots is Montaluce Winery, which offers estate-grown wines and gorgeous views of the North Georgia Mountains. If you visit, you need to visit their sister restaurant.  Titoria de Montaluce serves authentic Italian cuisine with a farm-to table culinary approach. Imagine yourself sitting on the outdoor patio while enjoying house-made pastas, brick-oven pizzas, and a number of other handcrafted creations. 

Beyond your normal wine tastings and culinary pairing options, they all offer some pretty unique experiences – like wine hikes and fly fishing!

Wolf Mountain Vineyards & Winery 

If you’re on the hunt for great views, Wolf Mountain Vineyards & Winery certainly won’t disappoint! Overlooking the foothills of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, the vineyard produces award-winning wines. Their dry white wines, reds, ports, and sparkling wines have even caught the eye of Southern Living Magazine. 

The Boegner Family is proud to offer guests a true “Napa Style” wine tasting experience, welcoming guests at their beautiful four-sided stone and cedar bar, coupled with the ambiance of their adjacent cask room, wine cellar and veranda.

If all that wasn’t enough to convince you to visit, how about Sunday Brunch?

The Cottage comes from humble beginnings, and is still family-owned and operated today. It’s a bit smaller than some of the other destinations you’ll find in this roundup, but you’ll feel like family by the time you leave.

There’s a little something for every palate here, from reds and whites to dry, semi-sweet, and sweet wines. You can enjoy wine by the glass or by the bottle – whichever makes you feel more at home.

Tiger Mountain Vineyards

One of the oldest and most celebrated vineyards in Georgia, Tiger Mountain’s elevation, cool mountain nights, and steep granite soils among the Blue Ridge Mountains help create ideal growing conditions for a number of award winning wines. 

Once ripe, the grapes are harvested by hand and the wines are made using old-world style winemaking. North Georgia enjoys a growing wine culture, thanks to varietals like Tiger Mountain’s Petit Manseng and Mountain Cyn earning gold at domestic and international wine competitions.
