Georgia has wineries and vineyards?! Say what? Who knew there was not just one but many?! In fact, Georgia vineyard wines are pretty amazing! Fall is the perfect time to get outdoors and escape for a day trip or overnight outing to one of many winery options.
While there are many Georgia wineries and vineyards to tour and visit, here is a list of a few of my favorites.
8 Georgia Wineries and Vineyards to Explore
Painted Horse Winery in Milton– Sshhh, don’t tell anyone else about this off-the-beaten-track local gem. Ok, well maybe you should tell. It’s too good not to share or bring your visiting guests or friends! Ideal date night with your partner or girls’ night out visiting this working farm and winery. Mamas, you deserve that day or night out, guilt-free. Located in the plush green horse country of the Milton/Alpharetta area, you will be pleasantly surprised with the wine/tasting room, live musical entertainment, and fun events like Fall Grape Stomping! They also have a second location in downtown Alpharetta that is definitely worth checking out.
Fainting Goat Vineyard & Winery – A personal favorite due to the relaxing gorgeous mountain scenery and views. The live acoustic music is a bonus and the wine is actually tasty. If you love cute goats who will visit with you, this is a must-outing for you! Bring your own picnic basket/ cheese and fruit or foods to go with your wine.
Wolf Mountain Vineyards – Wolf mountain is remarkably romantic and their Sunday brunch is phenomenal. They also have a vineyard cafe where reservations are recommended. Breathe in and sip away the picturesque and beautiful setting of rolling hills and fresh mountain air in the North Georgia mountains just north of Dahlonega.
Montaluce Winery & Restaurant – Unwind with a taste of fancy at Montaluce. Montaluce offers fine dining with a view as well as a delicious lineup of wine tastings. It also offers you the overnight experience if you plan to stay in their resort. Bonus, relax at their spa after a fun day experiencing their first-class Tuscan winery.
Frogtown Winery – Enjoy gorgeous mountain views while sipping award-winning wines on the porch of this beautiful white farmhouse estate.
Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery – A sweet little winery with a homey farm aesthetic on the Dahlonega Plateau. You can enjoy your glass of wine with live music and food trucks on Saturdays.
Kaya Vineyard & Winery – One of the largest Vineyards nestled in the Dahlonega area, Kaya provides breathtaking panoramic mountain views. With its large outdoor space, it is a perfect place for an afternoon family picnic.
Big Door Vineyards – Proudly bottled by their sister winery Horse Creek, Big Door Vineyards is a farm winery in North Georgia founded on friendship, vintage wine and memorable times. Big Door Vineyards offers wine tastings, a quaint winery pier and small acoustic performances in the tasting room.
