Known more for peaches than wine, the state of Georgia is home to a beautiful wine country in the mountains of North Georgia. The mountain soil is similar in composition to the soils found in Italy’s Piedmont region. But these wines are gaining a reputation of their own. In the heart of Georgia wine country, Dahlonega awaits with plenty of downtown fun. In every direction, there is lots to discover: natural beauty, historical sites, the Chattahoochee National Forest and wonderful Georgia wines.
