Swine and Wine - The Perfect Combo!

Harvest time is upon us in the North Georgia Mountains and now is the perfect time for you and your friends and family to get out and about. Breathe in the fresh fall air, enjoy the sounds of mountain music and literally be in hog heaven taking in the scents of BBQ smoke and fermenting wine. That sounds like one incredible weekend! Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery is hosting Swine Wine weekends taking place every weekend, all weekend, through the month of October. Dahlonega’s first family farm winery celebrates the 2016 vintage season with live music, delicious BBQ and wine tastings. Is it Saturday yet?

September in Dahlonega means that the Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty Bicycle Ride -- one of the premier bicycle rides in the Southeast, maybe even in the nation – is right around the corner.
