About an hour directly north of Atlanta, Georgia are the Blue Ridge Mountains, the southern portion of Appalachia and countless wineries. The area is known as North Georgia Wine Country to many. One of my favorites stops is Frogtown Cellars.
As your entering and driving through wine country, you’ll usually see signage guiding you to the various wineries. When you get to Frogtown Cellars, just outside of Dahlonega you’ll see the following. Time to go “up the hill”.
The winery, which opened in 1998, sits on a hillside looking over the vineyard.
The three levels of the winery is where all the magic happens.
Out on the two large decks and porch you can get great views of the 25 different wine grape types and 22,000+ grape vines that Frogtown has, as well as the Blue Ridge Mountains off in the distance. There are usually dogs running around on the deck and property, which is fun especially for the kids.
Notice the white table on the right-hand side of the first photo? More on that later.
One of the wine choices on this day was the Thirteenth Colony Merlot 2005. They produce wine under the Thirteenth Colony label as well as Frogtown. They offer dry red, dry white and off dry and sweet wine tastings. The tasting room is open year around and you can choose to taste in the tasting room or outside to soak in all the views. Buy your favorites to take home.
On Friday’s and the weekend enjoy your wine with one of their delicious paninis. My favorite being the Reuben. You get a salad and chips on the side.
Have always had friendly and great service. Check them out if you’re looking to host a private event or wedding. The blown up photo from above shows a private table for two within the vineyard.
For great wine, paninis, atmosphere and scenic views, make sure when making the rounds in North Georgia Wine Country, you get to Frogtown. What is your favorite winery in Northern Georgia? Anywhere in your travels?
