Wineries in Georgia

You may associate Georgia more with moonshine than wine, but there's no shortage of great local vintages. With more than 40 wineries in the state, you'll find a perfect local wine to accompany every meal. Visit a winery to tour the vineyards and select your favorite variety through a tasting experience. Chateau Elan is the largest winery in Georgia. Just about 40 miles north of Atlanta, they've been producing wines for more than 30 years.

Visit the winery for tours and a tasting. If you aren't sure if you prefer reds or whites, trying both their burgundy and whites is a great way to decide! Once you find your favorite variety, create a personalized label and bring a bottle home with you. You can also take a cooking class in the Viking Culinary Studio. Leave time to explore the estate beyond the winery, too; at 3,500 acres and including a golf course, visiting the estate can be a full day's outing.
