Best vineyard in Ellijay. It's not as upscale as others. But it's simple rustic appeal. Gorgeous view. Outdoor patio and stone fireplace. Large gazebo for live music. And friendly welcoming staff. Makes it exceptional.More

We stayed in East Ellijay, near Downtown Blue Ridge. Great midpoint! I believed I tasted 4 wines for $10 and got to keep the tasting, 4oz glass.
