Creekstone Winery, located in Sautee, Ga., is formerly a private residence and it is breathtaking as you walk up the sidewalk. The interior is spacious and perfect for gatherings and receptions. Charles and I stopped by on a Friday while exploring the Georgia Highway. Barbara was fantastic as she guided us through our tasting. I am not a fan of oaked wines, however the Bubbly Blanc Oak-Aged is the first oaked wine that I like. She said the reason is it is oaked in hardwood which causes the wine to be lighter without the heavy buttery taste. We sampled the Pinot Gris that was scheduled to be released the following day. It was my favorite. We went back on the following day and picked up several bottles. Charles also enjoyed the Chardonnay saying that it didn’t overpower your food. Not sweet wine drinkers we did taste Straight Up Purple which is referred to as communion juice. Creekstone has been in operation for 35 years operating under the Habbersham label. Their own winery is under construction and will be open soon. For now their tasting room is offering full tastings. As far as tasting prices go, Creekstone is a good value. You choose 5 wines for $12. Children are allowed in the tasting room but should stay with their parents. Dogs are welcome outside on the grounds. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and learned a lot from Barbara. Due to the weather we weren’t able to explore the grounds but did enjoy the view of Yonah Mountain.
