Tiger Mountain Winery

Tiger Mountain Vineyards is nestled on a hillside high up in Rabun County, on the rocky, sunny slopes of the North Georgia mountains. Our vineyard is small, the vines individually tended and the grapes hand-picked for quality. Our red wines are barrel-aged 12 to 24 months. Visit the vineyards and enjoy barrel-room tastings.

Beginning April 19, 2013, the Red Barn Cafe will be open to the public for lunch every Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. from April through November. Gourmet lunches will be catered by Rob Rotunno of the award-winning Corkscrew Café in Dahlonega. There will be live music on Saturdays.

Over a century old and restored in 1986, Glen-Ella Springs Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The inn features 16 well-appointed rooms each individually decorated with period antiques, luxury linens, colorful fabrics and locally made furniture as part of the decor. The rooms all open onto covered porches complete with rocking chairs to enjoy the serene setting. The restaurant is open most evenings at 5:30 p.m. and has been recognized as one of Georgia's top dining destinations. Reservations are recommended.

Glen-Ella Springs Inn is a wonderful location for romantic getaways, destination weddings as well as family and corporate retreats.

Lodging rates are based on double occupancy and always include a full hot entree breakfast.

Habersham Vineyards and Winery

Some of the finest award-winning Georgia wines have been produced at Habersham Vineyards & Winery since 1983. More than 150 medals have been awarded to Habersham Wines in both national and international competitions. The winery orginally was located in Baldwin until November 1998 when construction on a new facility located at the Nacoochee Village in Helen was completed. Located just one-half mile from Alpine Helen, the Nacoochee Village is now home to not only the Georgia Winery but to many other unique shops.

We use our best grapes and oak barrels to produce our premium, vintage dated, varietal Creekstone wines. Our popular Habersham Estates label include varietal vinefera wines as well as blended wines using both vinefera and French-American grapes. Southern Harvest wines use native muscadine grapes grown in South Georgia.

Crane Creek Vineyards

At Crane Creek Vineyards, you have the opportunity to taste and purchase the fruits of our labors. At our tasting room, you are welcome to sample the wines produced from our grapes. These wines are the product of our own winery and other Georgia wineries, which have crafted our raw product into works of art. Tour our winery and observe an operation that perfectly merges modern winemaking techniques with traditional artisan methods. Also plan to join us for a variety of intimate events where food, wine and the beauty of the North Georgia mountains come together in perfect harmony. Our wine list is always changing throughout the year, so we often have new releases for you to try.

You may also come and enjoy a special Vintner's Tour. The Tour is by Reservation Only. The Vintner's Tour includes a tour of the winery, your wine tasting, a souvenir glass and a cheese/cracker plate. Check out our Special Events on our webpage.

Montaluce Winery

Montaluce Estates is nestled on the 400-acre estate located 10 minutes west of the Dahlonega Square. The majestic Tuscan-style property abuts the Etowah River and the Chatahoochee National Forest. At the heart of the Montaluce Estate and at its highest point, the property boasts a modern 25,000-square-foot winery and restaurant. Reminiscent of a grand Tuscan Villa, with sweeping views of the vineyards and Georgia mountains, guests will discover the Italian ideal of "La Vita Bella." 20 acres of property are dedicated to vineyard, growing 10 different varietals of grapes.

Montaluce delivers award-winning European-style wines with a focus on Estate grown grapes. The award-winning wines are served and sold in the Montaluce tasting room as well as in Le Vigne Restaurant at Montaluce. Le Vigne Restaurant offers fresh farm-to-table food from Executive Chef Austin Rocconi, focusing on local fare and produce from the organic garden at Montaluce.

The European-style Georgia Winery at Wolf Mountain is fashioned after a raised craftsman-style cottage and sits atop the cellar, which is encased in fieldstone. The winery is 8,000 square feet of indoor function space that includes a dance space, an antique bar area and beautiful fireplaces. The winery also houses early French winemaking artifacts. The Vineyard Cafe is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday* from 12-3 p.m. Educational winemaker tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. We invite you to join us at the winery and sample our family of award-winning estate wines.
