Visit The Best Wineries in North Georgia This Winter

Is there anything better than enjoying the scenic mountain views in the North Georgia Mountains with a delicious glass of locally-made wine in your hand? We don’t think so! Though wine tasting in North Georgia is always a wonderful experience, there’s something extra special about visiting the top wineries in North Georgia during the quieter winter months. 

There are far fewer crowds here in the winter, giving you more time to linger at wineries in North Georgia, enjoy intimate tastings, and learn more in-depth about each of the places you visit. When you stay at our romantic North Georgia Bed and Breakfast, you’ll be within 45 minutes of more than 30 incredible wineries in North Georgia!

Though most of the wines you’ll encounter in North Georgia are sweet wines made from muscadine grapes and fruits, like peaches and berries, you’ll find that wineries in North Georgia also produce a broad range of European-style wines. It would take you several trips to the North Georgia mountains to taste all the great wine here, but to help you get started on some of the best winter wine tastings, we’ve curated a list of our ten favorite wineries in North Georgia. 

  1. Yonah Mountain Vineyards is one of our most recommended wineries in North Georgia. You will enjoy stunning mountain views at this top-rated winery and a delicious array of wines to taste, including chardonnay, merlot, malbec, pinot noir, and sauvignon blanc. Don’t miss their exquisite wine cave tour!
  2. Another one of the most popular wineries in North Georgia is Tiger Mountain Vineyards, which is also just 20 minutes from Glen-Ella Springs. This award-winning Georgia winery produces a delicious Malbec and Cabernet Franc.
  3. Stonewall Creek Vineyards produces a wonderful range of wines from their estate-grown grapes. They also have a second wine label, Standing Deer Cellar, produced using non-estate-grown but still local grapes. Taste their wonderful wines at their covered outdoor or indoor tasting room.
  4. Head over near Helen, and you’ll find Habersham Winery, one of the oldest wineries in North Georiga (and the entire state!). They offer several different varieties of wine, including the popular North Georgia specialty of Muscadine. 
  5. Near Cleveland, about 45 minutes from our North Georgia Bed and Breakfast, you’ll find Cottage Vineyards & Winery. With beautiful mountain views and delicious wines, it’s a fantastic place for a winter wine tasting. 
  6. One of the newer wineries in North Georgia that we’re loving is CeNita Winery. They are also located in Cleveland and offer an excellent selection of red and white wines.  
  7. Another of our favorite wineries in North Georgia is 12 Spies Vineyards. There’s something here for every wine lover, and it just so happens to be a delightful place to enjoy a sunset, too. 
  8. Serenity Cellars is a small, boutique winery focusing on small-batch production of old-world Tuscan-inspired wines. They produce delicious red bends, but they are perhaps best known for their delightful dessert wine, as featured in Forbes Magazine. 
  9. Another great choice among wineries in North Georgia is Terra Incognita Vineyard. This stunning wine-tasting destination sits overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, with gorgeous vineyards surrounded by thousands of protected acres of forest. It’s truly a breathtaking place to sip and swirl delicious wines this winter. 
  10. If you head towards Dahlonega, you must visit Kaya Vineyard and Winery. It was one of the first wineries in North Georgia in the Dahlonega area and is the largest. Their wines are truly spectacular.
