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?

Each weekend at Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery is where the “cork meets the pork” with special tastings of Three Sisters’ famous fat boy wines and award winning BBQ presented by pit master Dale Thornton of South 40 Smokehouse and pit master Joseph Martin of AngelFire7 BBQ. Better yet, general admission is free!

What’s great BBQ without some equally amazing sides? Food trucks like Atlanta’s Mac the Cheese and Scratch Cuisine bring farm fresh foods and Southern cuisine selected weekends throughout the month.

The fun doesn’t stop there! The celebration culminates with the 16th annual HalloWINE Hoot Nanny October 29-30. You can find out more about Swine Wine weekends at www.threesistersvineyards.com.
