Cartecay Vineyards – Entrance to Tasting Barn

Cartecay Vineyards is just outside of Ellijay, GA, and has a Tasting Barn that is a refurbished century-old barn. Today it sits on the same site and has the same footprint as when it was first constructed. When weather permits, the Chimney Patio also includes a Tasting Bar where live music is performed on Saturdays and Sundays. Cartecay Vineyards was planted in the Spring of 2008 has grown to include 13 acres of planted vines.

While the facilities have a lot of charm, we felt that the tasting itself should have shared more information about the wines they produce. It is unusual to sample blended wines without receiving information about what they contain. Unfortunatley, even the printed wine tasting sheets did not include the usual information regarding contents of the wine.
