The lush, serene beauty of Georgia’s wine country is definitely a sight to behold. Here visitors from all over the world are inspired by the verdant rolling hills, historic small towns, relaxed country feel, and, of course, the excellent wines.
Living in Georgia Wine Country is truly special, as you can not only enjoy gorgeous views of vineyards and foothills, you can also experience true Southern hospitality. Here in wine country, you will find friendly, welcoming communities that strive to preserve and celebrate their towns’ rich heritage and history.
A Centuries-Old Wine-Making Tradition
Georgia is one of the oldest wine regions in this part of the world. With its wine-making traditions dating back to the 19th century, wine-making here is considered a treasured cultural heritage, one that continues to be practiced and celebrated to this day.
Wines from this region have recently received significant attention for their quality. Georgia wines have won various awards from wine authorities from the American Wine Society.
Vintners and area residents enjoy Georgia Wine Country’s moderate climate and moist air, a combination that makes the region particularly conducive to growing wine grapes and another fruit-bearing crop like cranberries and mulberry trees. This climate is also great for outdoor enthusiasts as it means lots of sunny days to enjoy all the natural wonders and destinations that the area has to offer.
Residents of North Georgia Wine Country live a laidback lifestyle, where they won’t have to battle traffic jams and people know their neighbors. Here, a small-town country feel is combined with all the luxuries and conveniences of a modern city. The towns here are the kind of places where time seems to move a bit slower. The opportunities to engage in outdoor recreational activities like hiking, camping, rafting, golfing, and mountain biking are plentiful– not to mention just a few minutes away from most neighborhoods.
Georgia Wine Highway
Pre-Covid 19, a festival was held every June where all Georgia vintners could gather and showcase their best offerings. While we are certain that we will be attending a wine festival in the near future, and we can not wait, this year the month of August is dedicated to exploring Georgia’s Wine Highway.
