One of the newer vineyards in North Georgia, Ellijay River Vineyards was established in 2010 on almost 20 acres of former crop land. The vineyard borders the Ellijay River in the scenic North Georgia mountains, in the Whitepath area of Gilmer County between the towns of Ellijay and Cherry Log. The elevation is about 1400 feet above sea level.
The vineyard currently plants four varieties of wine grapes: Seyval Blanc, Voignier, Albarino and Merlot.
Ellijay River Vineyards is part of the newly created Ellijay Wine Country group of five vineyards & wineries located about an hour’s drive north of Atlanta.
