Stunning. Absolutely stunning. Breathtaking.
You get out of your car, walk to the stunningly beautiful modern winery building, which also houses the restaurant, and you are enamored.
Walk out on the back porch, or into their lush back lawns, you will be awestruck. It truly is an incredible place.
I knew that Dahlonega had wine, they have wineries, I had no idea the sheer beauty of them.
There are seven wineries in Dahlonega, Georgia. It’s a perfect place for them with the mountain setup.
It’s geared towards tourism, only an hour and a half from Atlanta.
There are so many other outdoor activities that compliment the wineries. We went to Wolf Mountain Vineyards and could not have been more impressed with their 30-acre property. It’s not a huge winery, but it's different.
Rather than the sweet muscadine wines that North Georgia is known for, they make dry wines. Mostly reds. European-type wines.
It really sets them apart. If you get a chance to speak with the winemaker and co-owner that we did, Brannon Boegner, do it! Take the time. He is from Atlanta, a huge UGA fan, but incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about wine. He’s perfected his craft. He works the fields, he does it all, and does it well.
His wines have won hundreds of prestigious medals across the country. They also have social distancing down. You can go out on days they are open, eat pizza or food, bring a picnic blanket and have a socially distant meal anywhere on the property. They also have a gorgeous setting for weddings and ceremonies.
A wonderful socially distant trip from Charleston.
