Stonewall Creek Vineyards – View of Vines and Tasting Room

Stonewall Creek Vineyards is a beautiful valley vineyard located in the Northeast Georgia mountains of Rabun County. Their thoroughly enjoyable and educational website tells the story of the Fackler family’s journey into winemaking, with the first Stonewall Creek grapes planted in 2005. When meeting the owners at the tasting room, you’ll truly get the impression that the vineyard and winemaking is a pure labor of love. Visit the winery and enjoy tastings from the wine terrace where you can enjoy the open views of the vineyard and mountains.

Drive in on the one-lane gravel road past the vines and big open spaces. Parking area is gravel (plan footwear accordingly).

Tiger Mountain Vineyards – Tasting Room Wine Banners

Tiger Mountain Vineyards, a small boutique North Georgia winery, is located in between the towns of Tiger and Cleveland. They cultivate all of their own grapes and produce all of their handcrafted wines in the mountains of Rabun County. They were named “Best Vinifera in Georgia / Winery of Distinction” for the 2017 Georgia Trustees Wine Challenge.

The Tiger Mountain Vineyards Tasting Room is located inside an industrial-style building with purple shutters and yellow awnings. The main parking area is across the street from the Tasting Room, and involves crossing the highway. Note that there is some parking behind the tasting room if you are fortunate enough to find a spot. While the old Red Barn (located behind the Tasting Room) offers beautiful vineyard and mountain views, there are, unfortunately, no scenic views available during your wine tasting.

It’s generally okay to bring your well-behaved, leashed dog, but note that there might not be much room for them on busy weekend days.
