In 2005, a 197-acre farm property located between Cleveland and Helen in White County, Georgia, was purchased after laying fallow for more than 40 years. Yonah Mountain Vineyards in GA was then founded by Bob and Jane Miller in North Georgia after extensive research including the help of a consulting team from Napa Valley and the University of Georgia. The research results indicated that North Georgia was perfect for growing fabulous wine grapes. So we set up our vineyard in Georgia.
Following Bob’s career in the financial services industry, Bob and Jane Miller took their interest in fine wines to the next level. They talked to growers and wine makers both in Georgia and Napa Valley and consulted with a wine professor. They read and studied as much as they could before working with consulting companies and the White County Extension Office to find the perfect location for Yonah Mountain Vineyards in GA. They think of this Vineyard in GA as the family farm, and share that vision with their family as often as possible. It is their hope that their kids and grandkids will want to be a part of Yonah Mountain vineyards in Georgia someday.
Our mountains provide the perfect place to escape the ordinary and embrace the exceptional. You can be active in your pursuit of outdoor excursions from golfing and mountain biking to back-country hiking, camping, and rafting. We also boast some of the best places for relishing relaxation and indulgence. Experience a stay at one of our Cabins in Helen at Gabby’s Cabins, browse our antique stores and local art galleries, and savor the cuisine of both casual and fine dining options nestled in our North Georgia wine country.

Our mountains combine the perfect terrain, soil, drainage, and elevation necessary for our vineyards to produce wines that reveal this “sense of place,” or terroir, which separates our wines from those made in other geographically diverse regions. Our soil composition is very much like that of Italy’s Piedmont region, which produces some of the most prestigious wines in the world. Come taste what happens when Georgia sunshine and mountain soils meet Viognier and Merlot grapes…we’re certain that you’ll be smiling, too.
