2017 Spring Wine Highway Week

The Winegrowers Association of Georgia is sponsoring its annual Wine Highway Week beginning Friday March 24th through Sunday April 2nd, 2017. This is a great way to see and experience the views and wonderful wines of Northeast Georgia. Our wineries offer great wines that are grown and produced here in Georgia, many of which have won local, regional, national and international awards.

There will be a $40.00 fee for each participant which will be collected at the first winery visited. Travelers will receive a “Wine Highway Week” collectors’ glass and Passport which will give them admission to ALL Twenty, 20, participating wineries at no additional charge.

Member wineries and Affiliate Members will each provide their own unique open-house format, with many offering food and wine pairings, music, barrel and library wine tastings, discounts, drawings and other special attractions.

There will be no advance sales of passports, however passport will be available at all wineries so you can plan your start point at any location of your choosing.

There will be a detailed map on the passport which will guide you on your way with ease.
