Wolf Mountain Vineyards & Winery – Touriga Vines and Mountain Views

A must-see in the Georgia Mountains is Wolf Mountain Vineyards & Winery, just north of the Dahlonega square. This is a GaMountainsGuide favorite for the wines, the food, and the spectacular Blue Ridge views! Enjoy sparkling white wines made in the French-style Méthode Champenoise (a rare find in the Georgia Mountains). The Blanc de Blancs Brut is a personal favorite and worth a try when it’s available. Tastings may include a selection of 6-10 wines including white, rose, red, sparking, and dessert. The vineyard and winery sits on top of Wolf Mountain at 1,800 feet above sea level, and has stunning long-range mountain views.

Beautiful, but steep property requires an alert driver and most parking areas require climbing up or down some stairs.

No dogs allowed, and no outside food / picnics. Outdoor seating is available, but it fills up quickly on the weekends.
