Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery | Dahlonega, Georgia
Named for its view of the Three Sisters Mountains, this 180-acre family farm vineyard and winery is the first vineyard in Lumpkin County since before prohibition. Established in 1996 by Sharon and Doug Paul, Three Sisters Vineyards has planted over 13,000 premium wine grape vines (vitis vinifera, French-American and Native American varietals) covering 18-plus acres on the mountainside property. The farm features Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Touriga, and three distinctive clones of Chardonnay—as well as the French-American hybrid, Vidal Blanc and the East Coast's popular Native American varietal Cynthiana-Norton.
The Three Sisters Winery began operations in August of 2000 while its tasting room opened September of 2001.
Reviewer Laura W. says on yelp.com: "You can taste three wines for $5 or six wines (including reserves and a keepsake glass) for $15. They have some delicious reds (Fat Boy) and a couple of fun, flavor-infused wines. I got a bottle of the pineapple-infused chardonnay to take home, and I'm going to make sangria with it. The people here are welcoming, totally down to earth, and super helpful with any questions that you might have."
Current production at Three Sisters Vineyard and Winery is nearly 4,000 cases. French & American oak barrels and stainless steel tanks are used in production and aging of its estate wines. All Three Sisters wines are handcrafted from 100% Georgia grown winegrapes from the vineyard, using old world traditions and the latest technology.
