The annual Georgia Wine Highway event began Friday, March 16th and runs through Sunday, March 25th. This tour of North Georgia Mountain vineyards includes wine tastings at each vineyard and a commemorative souvenir wine glass. At only $50 to sample so many great wines from over 20 vineyards, this is a fantastic deal!
No online passport purchases are available, but you may purchase your 2018 Wine Highway Passport at your first stop at any of the 22 participating vineyards. Hours are Mon – Fri 1:00pm to 5:00pm, Sat 11:00am – 5:00pm, Sun 12:30pm – 5:00pm. I was able to make it to all 22 vineyards this year – a big thanks to my driver for making it possible (always drive safely).
Tickets / Passports are $50 each.

Note that a “+” next to the number of wines served indicates that we had a bartender who opted to share an additional sample taste based on our preferences. These bonus samples are not guaranteed, but you may find yourself with an extra sample if crowds allow time to chat with the bartender.

The Winegrowers Association of Georgia is sponsoring its annual Wine Highway Week beginning Saturday March 16th through Sunday March 25th, 2018. This is a great way to see and experience the views and wonderful wines of Northeast Georgia. Our wineries offer great wines that are grown and produced here in Georgia, many of which have won local, regional, national and international awards.
Travelers will receive a “Wine Highway Week” collectors’ glass and Passport which will give them admission to ALL participating wineries at no additional charge. Be sure to keep your Passport and Collectors glass with you at all wineries visited! Member wineries and Affiliate Members will each provide their own unique open-house format, with many offering food and wine pairings, music, barrel and library wine tastings and more!
*** UPDATE ***
We spent 5 days with the 2018 Wine Highway Week passport and were able to visit all 22 of these great vineyards and wineries! As expected, the crowds were larger on the weekends, but the wineries were also busier than usual on the weekdays due to this event. Overall a great time and highly recommended!
