Christmas, and the entire holiday season, in Dahlonega and Lumpkin County is magical, and national media is noticing.

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.

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?
