Three Sisters Winery
Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery is a small family farm situated in the heart of the Frogtown District in historic Lumpkin County, Georgia. Located 18 miles from Long Mountain Lodge, the farm’s name was inspired by the property’s spectacular view of Lumpkin County’s Three Sisters Mountain. While no one knows the origin of the name of Three Sisters Mountain, local residents refer to its three distinctive peaks as Wild Cat, McBrayer, and Rattlesnake.
Three Sisters Winery began production in August of 2000 and is Lumpkin County’s first bonded farm winery since prohibition (BWGA43). All of our family members are involved in the wine-making process. French & American oak barrels and stainless steel tanks are used in the production and aging of our estate wines. All of our wines are handcrafted from 100% Georgia-grown winegrapes from Lumpkin County’s very first vineyard, using old-world traditions and the latest technology.
The 184-acre farm vineyard features Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Touriga, and 3 distinctive clones of Chardonnay-as well as the French-American hybrid, Vidal Blanc, and the East Coast’s popular Native American varietal Cynthiana-Norton.
Frogtown is a 57-acre wine estate located 17 miles from Long Mountain Lodge at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains equal distance between Dahlonega and Cleveland Georgia. Frogtown encompasses 28 acres of vineyards and a tri-level gravity flow winery specifically designed to produce the unique wines made from Frogtown grapes.
In 1998, native Atlantans Craig and Cydney Kritzer founded Frogtown in a location carefully selected for quality wine grape production and outstanding mountain views, the Frogtown District of Lumpkin County, Georgia. After researching Frogtown’s soil, diverse climates, and terrain, Craig divided the land up into separate vineyards. He planted different wine grape varieties based on the characteristics of each vineyard site. Frogtown is now home to 28 acres of vineyards planted to 15 different wine grapes varieties, both red and white.
Frogtown produces wines under the ‘Frogtown’ label and the ‘Thirteenth Colony’ label.
The Kritzer family invites you to come and relax on our deck with a glass of our wine and enjoy the views overlooking our vineyards, lake, and the North Georgia Mountains
Cavender Creek Vineyards & Winery
Cavender Creek Vineyards and Winery, a small farm vineyard, located 10.7 miles from Long Mountain Lodge, got its start- with the volunteer help of family and friends- in 2007 with the planting of our two red grapes- Cabernet Sauvignon and Norton/Cynthiana- with the first harvest in 2009. The third plot- Petit Manseng, a small white grape- was planted in 2008 and premiers its first vintage in the Spring of 2011. Cavender Creek Vineyards & Winery endeavors to produce hand-crafted wines that reflect the personal attention to detail and “pampering”- from planting to bottling– afforded by a small farm vineyard.
Planned around an “old family farm” theme, Cavender Creek Vineyards & Winery features a c.1820 hand-hewn log cabin, disassembled and moved down from Tennessee.
