Something I've always wanted to do, but just had never gotten around to it is go check out Georgia's "wine country". Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia and stretching all the way over as far as Savannah, this "wine country" is home to a significant number of vineyards. We visited two vineyards in Dahlonega, Georgia which were Wolf Mountain Vineyards & Winery and Frogtown Cellars. Wolf Mountain is one of the more popular vineyards. They have gorgeous grounds and a cafe with amazing food. Maybe because this was a holiday weekend, Wolf Mountain was wayyyyy too crowded for us. It detracted from the ambiance a bit, so we moved on rather quickly. We decided to hit up Frogtown and it was quite a treat. They were busier than usual too, but it was a bit more manageable. So we spent the rest of the afternoon, noshing on small plates and partaking in some wine tasting. It was just so nice. I really do cherish moments like these with my husband, as we don't get "alone time" as much as would like. The backdrop of the mountains along with the beautiful scenery of the vineyard below gave us the perfect casual but romantic atmosphere.
We really liked a some of the wines that we'd tasted and left with a few bottles. It was a great day. *smile*
And yes, I'm wearing those pants again--and, no, I don't care how that looks. They are my faves. *chuckle*
By the way, check out this movie called "Sideways". It came out in 2004 and won an Oscar. It's a funny, quirky film that we enjoyed. We happened to watch it a couple weeks ago, and that is what gave us the nudge to make this quick little roadtrip. We're actually planning a trip to California wine country, too!
