The Tale of Habersham
Habersham Winery, one of the charming Sautee Nacoochee Vineyards, is situated in the heart of the Nacoochee Village. Since 1983, this wonderful vineyard has produced top blends from a large selection of locally sourced grapes from North Georgia. By harvesting in the local community, the freshness of the wine will not be compromised. This concept of local harvesting supplements the mission of “quality beginning with careful monitoring of the grapes in our vineyard…Attention to detail continues through the crushing, fermentation and aging process.” Throughout the vine-to-bottle journey, both the Vineyard Manager Matt Chobanian and the winemaker Andrew Beaty observe the intricate process.
In addition to the official location, you can also visit its sister wineries near Helen, including Stonepile Vineyard and Mossy Creek Vineyard. You won’t be disappointed by your time!
