From peach wine and hard apple cider to blueberry beer and heirloom red wine, local-made beverage choices are almost endless. Wine making has long been a traditional art form in the mountains. In fact, before Prohibition, Georgia ranked sixth in wine production among U.S. states. These days, it’s American and European wine grapes — not scuppernong — at the heart of the premium regional wines being produced locally. In addition, a burgeoning microbrew scene has also exploded onto the area. Now, you cannot only taste and tour at local wineries, but also several microbreweries. Plus, you’ll find many stores and restaurants on the North Georgia Farm Trail carry North Georgia-made wines and brews.
