WINES

  • Pinot Grigio – Slow and gentle fermentation with minimal manipulation brings a Pinot Grigio with extraordinary character. An ever-so-light pink color comes from extended skin maceration from this light-blue grape. This Pinot Grigio pairs excellently with grilled tilapia and roasted vegetables. Clean and crisp with a wonderful mouth filling viscosity, this wine is the perfect wine for white wine lovers.
  • Chardonnay Reserve – This classic Chadonnay was barrel fermented in 100% new Hungarian oak for 9 months. Weekly stirring of the lees brings this complex chardonnay layers of Pineapple, Citrus and caramel. The perfect wine for Georgia shrimp and grits.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon – This Cabernet was aged in a combination of French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels to integrate the subtle fruit and vanilla flavors with very fine tannins. Enjoy this wine with a Black Angus Cheeseburger.
  • Georgia Merlot – This North Georgia Merlot is a lush and exciting representation of the Georgia Terroir. Extended barrel-aging in French oak gives this wine a nice balance. A rush of black fruit with slight hints of pepper lead way to a long lasting finish. Enjoy with Applewood smoked chevre and crisp.
