Whether you’re fresh off your summer vacation, or still brainstorming itineraries, the crisp, cool North Georgia mountain air is something to consider. Especially if you include a jaunt to Yonah Mountain Vineyards; easily a day, an afternoon or simply a couple hours is spent refreshed, de-stressed and packed with the kind of personality that only exists from within a family business.
Just a short drive from Valhalla, Yonah Mountain Vineyards sits on 200 sprawling green acres that host a working family winery that pours handcrafted wines every day of the week and delightfully tours guests through their intricate process. Its rolling hills and sandy soil are the perfect setting for 20 planted acres of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Petit Manseng, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot … and its no secret on the grounds that this family (and their team) love their job.
Visit The Tasting Room for sips of your favorite varietals, book a weekend Cave Tour & Tasting to learn intimate secrets of the winery workings and hear funny family stories, or spend a quiet afternoon enjoying the mountainside view with your own picnic and a bottle of wine.
More than a beautiful winery, Yonah Mountain Vineyards offers stunning facilities for private events, big or small. The Vineyard Ballroom is a luxury 10,000-square-foot venue with a beautiful double staircase (visually striking and functionally poignant) that provides a simple canvas to create an event that is gorgeously rustic and elegant, or sophisticated, tailored and chic.

No matter how you spend your time in Yonah Mountain, the gorgeous scenery, delicious decanters and bevy of seasonal nibbles will inspire even the most novice of connoisseurs to recreate the tasting experience once you’re back in the real world.
