Vineyards

“And then one goes up the country — song by song and wine by wine.” 

Willa Catha, On the Gull’s Road

Located at the northern most tail of the Georgia Wine Country, the Vineyards located in Rabun County continue to capture the interest & palate of wine connoisseur’s from around the world. Our grapes celebrate the unique balance of a clay-like soil resembling that of the prestigous Italian Piedmont, the elevated rolling terrain of our neighboring Great Smoky Mountains, and a year-round moderately moist climate.

With European grapes thriving in Rabun County, our vineyards fortunately grow both red & white grapes. Some of the variety of grapes grown in Rabun are; Cabernet Franc, Touriga Nacional, Tannat, Malbec, Mourvedre, Tinta Cao, Norton, Viognier, & Petit Manseng.

Regardless of what flavors you are looking for, you will be very pleased with the profile and body of our locally crafted vino. Trust us, it is well worth the drive.

We planted our first vines in 2005 and released our first wines in 2012.
Our wines are dry with a sweet white scheduled for release Spring 2015. Stonewall Creek Vineyards label – Grapes from our vineyards (Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Manseng, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Tannat).
