1. Tiger Mountain Vineyards
The trip begins with Tiger Mountain Vineyards, a stunning boutique winery in Rabun County that cultivates all the grapes right on site.

7. Amicalola Falls
Ahh, Amicalola Falls. Wouldn’t be a waterfalls trip in Georgia without a stop to this beauty.

8. Chateau Meichty Family Vineyard and Winery
The last wine stop on our wine and waterfalls trip is the beautiful Chateau Meichty Family Vineyard and Winery.
