Georgia wineriesWith a long history of winemaking dating back to the 19th century, Georgia was once a major grape growing state until local prohibition laws (enacted a full decade before national prohibition in 1920) all but destroyed the wine industry in Georgia.

Today, Georgia wine country stretches from Savannah to Young Harris.

Fruit wines, muscadines, American and European wine grapes are grown all over the state. thanks to a farm bill passed in the 1980's when the state's two oldest wineries, Chateau Elan (pictured above) and Habersham once again reclaimed their heritage.

In recent years, Georgia acreage devoted to vineyards has more than tripled and more wineries and vineyards are planned to open in the years ahead.
