Vineyards and Wineries Near Helen, Georgia

The Taste of a Perfect Day in Georgia

Some of the world's best wines come from vineyards near Helen, Georgia. Over a dozen North Georgia wineries have opened in the last decade in North Georgia, largely based on the success of the premium European varieties thriving in our area. Our mountains provide the perfect terrain, soil, drainage and elevation necessary for local vineyards to produce award-winning wines. Our soil composition is very much like that of Italy’s Piedmont region, which produces some of the most prestigious wines in the world. Georgia may be the Peach State but the award-winning grapes are our passion. These Georgia wines and wineries make for the perfect justification for staying in one of our beautiful vacation cabins near Helen. Come and taste a perfect day in Georgia!
