Dahlonega WineGeorgia Vineyards, Wineries & Tasting Rooms



This website is my limited contribution to the growing wine industry in the state of Georgia, USA. I have been taking in interest in Georgia wines for many years, and was responsible for presenting several of these at formal wine tastings in Europe.

Georgia is not the best known of the wine producing states in USA. But it does have a presence, though most wineries are small boutique operations with limited production and mainly "cellar door" sales. It is on the climatic edge of reasonable grape production (unless your interest lies in muscadines or other grape species). Problems like Pierce's Disease and mildew also drastically limit viable grape growing areas.

This website offers a directory of the vineyards. If you seek Vinifera and hybrid operations, there are 52 Vineyards. 36 of these have their own wineries, and 38 have tasting rooms at the vineyard. There are also 14 other tasting rooms offering wines from one or more wineries.
For Muscadine fans, Georgia has 32 vineyards, 16 with their own winery and 15 with on-site tasting rooms, plus a further 5 off-site Muscadine tasting rooms.

There is also a directory of related activities including distilleries and meaderies. For further reading, I also identify a number of "interesting" links around my home town, Dahlonega, and also other wine-oriented websites.

Details of recent courses and lectures I have presented can be found on the Events page.

Some of my thoughts on wine and related matters can be found on my Blog page.
