Update: Due to COVID-19 Wine Highway Week has made some date changes. Passports will be valid for the entire month of August.
March the Winegrowers Association of Georgia organizes the wine highway weekends. Originally held over just one weekend, the event soon became too popular to be limited to just three days. Now wine lovers can enjoy North Georgia’s finest wines over one month for just one price.
The cost is $50.00 per person – paid at the first winery visited. That fee will give you a passport and special wine glass to take to all the wineries you wish to visit at no additional charge for tastings. This is a great way to visit all of the member wineries for one price.
Normal wine highway weekend Tasting hours have always been Friday 12-5 (1-5 for the first Friday), Saturdays 11-5, Sundays 12:30 -5, Monday through Thursday 11-5. Due to Covid 19 not all wineries will be open weekdays and hours may vary so call the wineries you wish to visit to verify opening hours.
Participating wineries within approximately 20 minutes from the inn include Cavender Creek, Kaya Winery, Etowah Meadery and Cottage Winery. No more than 45 minutes away you can visit Habersham Winery, Cenita Winery, Creekstone Winery, Serenity Cellars and Yonah Mountain Winery. See map below for these locations relative to our inn.
Some of our personal favorites in terms of wine and venue include Cavender Creek with their rustic yet elegant tasting room with numerous fire pits to sit around sipping wine or the large fireplace on the covered deck with live music. We also like the mountain top views at Cottage Winery and the beautiful views of rocky top Yonah Mountain from Yonah Mountain Winery.
Wolf Mountain, Frogtown, Three Sisters and Montaluce Wineries are not part of the wine highway weekends since they are not members of the Georgia Winegrowers Association.
Book a room or yurt with us for one of the wine highway weekends or stay with us during the week and enjoy the Georgia wine.
