    Greetings! I went through your article and I found it very interesting. I’ve never heard of Cartecay Vineyards in Ellijay, GA. But I feel it is an amazing place that’s worth a visit. I like it mostly because it has both indoor and outdoor seating for you to choose where you feel comfortable. I also found it important that the opening hours are clearly stated and the costs of different wines. Thanks for sharing this unique location, I will be sharing it further too.

    The most interesting aspects of this tour seem to be the relaxed environment and that Tim O’Donovan is playing live music. A friend told me it’s a great place to take wonderful pictures. I am eager to take my camera over there and take some unique pics. Thanks for this post.

      Hi Ann, Cartecay Vineyards does provide unique photo opportunities with the old structures and the vineyards on the rolling hills. Plus, it’s a great chance to listen to local entertainment while sampling local wines! Have a great time!

    I don’t drink, but this place is sure beautiful. There is a lot to do at Cartecay Vineyards in Ellijay, Georgia, USA. Turkey Creek Run looks like an awesome place to stay with fresh air and plenty of room. 

    Unsure when I’ll be in Georgia again, but I’ll need to make a special trip in the future. I’m just a few thousand miles away in the Philippines.
