CeNita Vineyards & Winery – Entrance, Rocking Chairs, & Cornhole

CeNita Vineyards & Winery is a family-owned vineyard and winery that opened in 2015 in the rolling hills near Cleveland, Georgia. Their grapes are grown on 3 acres of land and produce ~1,000 cases of wine annually. Estate wines are grown, processed, cellared, and bottled at CeNita. A large, sweet, sleepy dog looked perfectly comfortable in the tasting room when snoozing on an indoor couch (see photo below), and at times he’d be stubbornly napping in the middle of the floor. Cornhole games, disc golf, hammocks, and chairs are set up outside for either scenic relaxation or friendly competition. Rocking chairs beckon from the covered front porch of the tasting room.

Scenic, mid-range views of the vineyard and some distant hills.

Gravel parking lot (plan footwear accordingly).
