A hidden treasure in Georgia’s Upper Hiawasee Highlands AVA is Paradise Hills, offering Cabin Rentals, a European-style Spa, and a Winery & Tasting Room. Spend a relaxing afternoon (or the whole weekend) in the scenic beauty of this farm winery. Enjoy a variety of wines, spa treatments, plus add live music on the weekends. Goats are hanging out in the area of the property located just below the tasting room. Seating is available both indoors and outdoors (patio with tables and chairs or deck with large fireplace and mountain views). A small gift shop is also located inside next to the wine-tasting room. Cheese and tapas available from tasting room.
Pets are welcome outside on the wine patio (but not inside the tasting room). Children need to be under your control at all times.
For a totally unique experience, try a Seaplane Tour of the Georgia Mountains and enjoy the Mountain Scenery with a “Splash and Dash” seaplane splashdown on Lake Blue Ridge, Lake Notley, or Lake Chatuge! Various packages available or design your own custom experience!
