Announcing our New North Georgia Wine Experience
We will be conducting winery visits starting in November, 2017. For now, we have chosen to visit Chateau Meichtry in Talking Rock, GA. (Pronounced “my-tree”) We chose this winery because it is a small, family owned and operated business, much like our own. We were so pleased with the operation when we visited! Beautiful surroundings, a warm, congenial staff and best of all they grow and produce wines right on site so you’ll be able to get a feel for the whole wine making process. We wanted to put together a relaxing day trip where you could escape for the day and just relax, enjoying the company of friends, old and new.
We will be picking up in central locations in Woodstock and Canton. We can also pick up in the Big Canoe area. We are open to picking up in other areas as well. We are planning for the event to start at 11:00 AM and return approximately 4:00 PM. If you prefer to be picked up at your home, that can be arranged at a small cost in addition to the ticket price.
Limo and Lunch
The cost is $75.00 per person and includes:
- Round trip transportation in one of our luxury vehicles
- A casual lunch** enjoyed on the patio at the vineyard or in front of the fireplace in the tasting room, depending on the weather.
- A 10% discount on any wines purchased at the winery on the day of your visit
A gratuity for the driver is NOT included~ we leave that to your discretion
**Lunch will be prepared by the restaurant Cantaberry from Ellijay, Ga. We’ll ask you to place your order the day before the trip.
Chateau Meichtry offers a few options for tasting the wine. You can choose the option that appeals to you. Payment for wine tasting is made directly to the winery. If you want to do the tour option, we’ll need to know ahead of time and we need a minimum of 6 to arrange it. Here’s what the options were the day we visited:
A tasting of 5 wines for $8.00
A tasting of 6 wines, with the 6th served in an edible chocolate cup for $12.00
A full wine tour (in our humble opinion the best choice!). This tour is $30.00 and includes the following:
- Tasting of 5 wines in the tasting room
- A crystal Riedel souvenir wine glass
- A glass of wine to sip during your tour- where you will hear about the history and process of making wine and tour the grounds
We do have a few rules!
You must be 21 years of age and be able to provide picture ID
We will only conduct the event if we have 6 or more participants. Fewer than 6 in your party? Not a problem: just request the day you want to go and we’ll let you know when we have at least 6 travelers or give you an alternate date. It’s a great way to meet new friends! Of course, we can always provide private tours, but not at this fantastic rate. No money will be collected until at least 6 people have confirmed a particular date.
We do not allow smoking or eating inside the limousine. We do provide water, coke, coke zero or sprite. You may BYOB wine if you like!
