Dahlonega Wineries 

 
Dahlonega wineries each provide their own style of North Georgia wine and ambiance. Visit a North Georgia winery that offers lunch and dinner. Some have free music on weekends.
 
The Dahlonega/Lumpkin County area was designated the Dahlonega Plateau on July 20, 2018 as the newest viticultural area in the United States and the first with boundaries contained within the state of Georgia. The designation identifies the origin of American wines in a manner similar to those used in France. For more information visit Dahlonega Plateau.
 
If you would like transportation to the Dahlonega Wineries or a  North Georgia winery you can contact Uber using your app or Mama's Taxi at 706-482-8539.
 
Every year the Georgia Winegrowers Association has the Wine Highway Weekend with information on our blog. A great way to enjoy a glass of North Georgia wine.

The winery has sweeping views of the vineyards and mountain to the south from their dining rooms, balcony and decks. Antiques from Germany and nice artwork are scattered across the rooms. They offer tours by appointment and wine tastings for a fee. Themed Sunday brunches, bistro lunches and Winemaker Gourmet Dinners are also offered. They also provide a vineyard lunch Thursday through Saturday with reservations. For lunch we like the gourmet pizza with salad and a glass of wine while viewing the vineyards. Brunches and special dinners sell out quickly and require reservations. Sunday brunches tend to have two seatings. Some Winters they close in December and reopen in February.

An old 1800's log cabin was moved from another state near the tasting room which adds charm to the property. They have also added an event barn for special music concerts.

Do the wineries offer lunch and/or dinner?

Wolf Mountain offers lunch some days of the week (reservations required) and Sunday brunch. Frogtown offers Friday and Saturday lunch and dinner as well as Sunday lunch. Montaluce has lunch and dinner. Some of the other wineries offer snacks for purchase like cheese, crackers, etc.

Do some wineries close for tastings if there is a wedding scheduled?

Yes we have heard from our guests that they could not get a tasting due to the venue being booked for a wedding.

Is there a charge for winery tastings?

Yes. Price varies depending on the winery, number of pours and if you get to keep the glass. At some wineries you can choose to taste only reds or whites. Many guests also like to split a tasting where you get a smaller pour and will not feel the effects too quickly from consuming too much alcohol and a n affordable way to try a North Georgia wine.

What is a meadery?

A meadery makes wine out of honey instead of grapes. Etowah Meadery also offers tastings of the traditional and infused meads. The infused meads are flavored with fruit like blueberries, paw paws, strawberry and more.
