Winemaker at Cavender Creek
The wines here rotate - ask them what's new or which wines Kris is most excited about! We love the Souzão and he's currently working on a killer Cabernet.
Owners/ Winemakers at Accent Cellars
Pushing the envelope with some seriously unique offerings. We love their Piquettes.
4th generation farmers and owners of a beautiful vineyard and tasting room. Welcomed us new-comers with open arms and are never short on great advice. We love their Chambourcin and it inspired us to plant an acre!
Owners of The Mountain Top Lodge (Dahlonega)
Must stay retreat, lodge and bed & breakfast. It's nestled on a small mountain top on fifteen quiet acres and just minutes from beautiful Dahlonega. The design is impeccable, the attention to detail is second to none and the folks are just the loveliest!
Oh and don't sleep on their wine maker dinners!
Owner of Chateau Meichtry
Bobby was also an early supporter and advocate for our winery when we wanted to purchase land in Ellijay. They have a beautiful winery!
Owner and winemaker of Engelheim Vineyards in Ellijay. Gary was an early supporter and mentor to us. Dan was able to work several harvests here before we planted our own vines. We love their Vidal Blanc which inspired us to plant our own!

Long time friend and wine advocate, check out Krishna's wine shop in the heart of Atlanta, they have wine for every palate and budget. Their wine club is TRY before you buy!!

Owner and Founder of the Oenophile Institute
Chelsea's institute makes learning about wine affordable and accesible - learn more about wine in an approachable way! I WISH we had access to this when we lived in the city years ago. Atlanta is so lucky!
