NORTH GEORGIA VINEYARD TOUR:
 

KAYA VINEYARDS 

Enjoy spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the panorama of lush vineyards, while experiencing some of the best wines in the Southeast.  Kaya produces hand-crafted complex wines that cater to the serious enthusiast, but with a sense of balance that is both easily approachable and enjoys wide appeal. The goal in their tasting room is to provide an educational experience for those with a passion to learn more about wine - in a down-to-earth environment.

Enjoy a glass of North Georgia wine and the warm atmosphere of their Appalachian-style lodge with its unique three-sided “stovepipe” fireplace and expansive window views of the Blue Ridge. Or enjoy the cool summer breezes and a glass of White Merlot on their 2,000 square-foot covered deck. 

The winery specializes in private events: from formal weddings of up to 200, to informal luncheons on our vineyard deck. We also offer a unique weekday meeting environment for corporate retreats with optional team-building programs. Our stone encased cellar provides another unique venue for a more intimate affair, accented by a waterfall feature that naturally humidifies over a hundred barrels.

 

CANE CREEK VINEYARDS & WINERY 

This small family farm vineyard got its start in 2007 with the volunteeer help of family and friends. Their first harvest of two red grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Norton / Cynthiana, was in 2009. Next? Petit Manseng, made from a small white grape, premiers its first vintage in the Spring of 2011. 

Cane Creek endeavors to produce hand-crafted wines that reflect the personal attention to detailand “pampering”, from planting to bottling, afforded by a small family vineyard. Planned around an old farm theme,  the North Georgia winery features a circa 1820 hand-hewn log cabin, disassembled and moved down from Tennessee, which eventually will serve as guest accommodations.

The tasting room is in the 'loft' of one of the cabins on the property, and features a spacious deck that extends over the grape crush-pad below. What else can you view from Cane Creek Winery's deck? Farm animals including donkeys, sheep, and a big ole' white pasture guardian and mascot: the family's dog!

 

FROGTOWN VINEYARD 

A 57 acre wine estate located at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, equal distance between Dahlonega and Cleveland Georgia. Frogtown encompasses 40 acres of vineyards and a tri-level gravity flow winery specifically designed to produce the unique wines made from Frogtown grapes.

In 1998, native Atlantans Craig and Cydney Kritzer founded Frogtown in a location carefully selected for quality wine grape production and outstanding mountain views, the Frogtown District of Lumpkin County, Georgia. After researching Frogtowns soil, diverse climates and terrain, Craig divided the land up into separate vineyards. He planted different wine grape varieties based on the characteristics of each vineyard site. Frogtown is now home to 40 acres of vineyards planted to 17 different wine grapes varieties, both red and white. 

Frogtown produces wines under the 'Frogtown' label, 'Thirteenth Colony' label and 'Talking Rock' label.  The Kritzer family invites you to come and relax on our deck with a glass of our wine and enjoy the views overlooking our vineyards, lake and the North Georgia Mountains.

THREE SISTERS VINEYARDS & WINERY 

A small family oriented farm that is a destination for tourists and wine enthusiasts visiting Northeast Georgia.  After purchasing the Lumpkin County property in 1995, Sharon and Doug Paul began nearly a year of site planning for the new vineyard. The farm's name is inspired by the beautiful view of Lumpkin County's Three Sisters Mountain to the west.  Three Sisters Vineyards, Inc. was incorporated the following summer on July 19, 1996 to cultivate the growth and production of wine grapes. Sharon Paul's brother Ken VanDusen joined the family business in October 1996 as the Vineyard Operations Manager. The Winery began operations in August of 2000. The Tasting Room opened September of 2001. Eighteen acres of grapes thrive on our mountainside property.

Situated on 184 acres between the historic mountain villages of Dahlonega and Cleveland/Helen, Lumpkin County's first vineyard, Three Sister, holds the historic distinction of being "Dahlonega's First Family Farm Winery" and Dahlonega-Lumpkin County's Founding Winegrower.
