Rabun County, nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, is Georgia’s northeastern most county. It claims the title of the state’s Farm-to-Table Capital and five Best Chef America award recipients. But with four wineries, two distilleries, resorts, golf courses, three state parks, rivers, lakes, trails and more than two dozen waterfalls, there is so much more to bring you here than just the amazing dining.
Let’s start with the wineries. Tiger Mountain, 12 Spies, Stonewall Creek and Terra Incognita all create award winning varieties from their own vines, including Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Manseng. The soil is ideal at this elevation and as a result, the vineyards not only boast about their fabulous wines, but also of their spectacular views.
