A winery we recently visited in Sharp Mountain Vineyard in Jasper, GA. We have found that each winery takes on it’s own unique personality through the wines and the tasting room. Sharp Mountain is located in the the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains and is a former garage turned into a tasting room. The inside of the tasting room is decorated with pastels and kick-knacks, making you feel like you are cozy mountain cabin. There is also a nice covered outdoor seating area that allows you to sit with friends and enjoy a glass of wine. The view from the winery is a laid-back setting, that is perhaps less awe-inspiring as some views, but more calming and relaxed. Per our usual, we participated in a wine tasting and they had a rather extensive list of red and white wines. Our favorite was the Cabernet Franc; however, both their Merlot and their Sangiovese were out of stock so unfortunately we weren’t able to try the wines we typically enjoy. The wineries near Helen/Dahlonega, GA are typically rather crowded, but the wineries in and near Jasper, GA seem less traversed allowing you to relax more and enjoy the setting and wine.
