Georgia Wine Producers, an organization uniting wine producers in Georgia from North to South, has concluded the first annual Georgia Trustees Wine Challenge, and the superlative trophies and best of class certificates were awarded at a gala banquet kicking off the 2015 Savannah Food & Wine Festival in Savannah, GA.
Wineries were honored for wines made from grapes grown in Georgia and for wines made from grapes grown outside the state, but made in Georgia. Banquet attendees came from all over the United States, from California to Wisconsin to Massachusetts and the nation’s capital as well as from Georgia. Judges came from many aspects of the wine industry, including retailers, wine educators, distributors and journalists.
The Georgia Winery competed against 25 other Georgia wineries at the 2015 Georgia Trustees Wine Challenge and had the most awarded sweet wines. Gold medal winners included Chattanooga Blush, Concord and Tara Bella. Silver medal winners include Georgia on my Mind, Niagara and Muscadine. Bronze medal winners include Blackberry Blush, Rawlings Ruby Red and Tailgate Red. Georgia Wine Producers also sponsored the award for “Best Non-Georgia Grown Wine,” which went to the Georgia Winery’s Blackberry wine.
On Monday, November 30th, the Georgia Winery received three new 3,000-gallon stainless steal tanks! After signing on with Empire Distribution back in October of 2014, the request for having Sweet Southern Wine in liquor stores and wine shops throughout the state of Georgia has continued to grow.
The demand for Georgia Winery’s wines has grown so much that they will be receiving 3 more 3,000-gallon tanks in January! These tanks are jacketed and cooled via a glycol as opposed to their standard walk in cooler. This way the Georgia Winery can continue their freeze fermentation process on a larger scale.
“We are gearing up production with hopes to be able to distribute more wine”, says Tara Taymore, Georgia Winery Manager. “We hope to start with home base of Georgia and expand distribution across the Southeast.”
Future plans of expansion for the Georgia Winery include a new warehouse facility to be built in 2016, to hold finished wines and give their now warehouse more space to ferment wine.

The Georgia Winery is proud to announce the release of their brand new wine, Cabernet Sauvignon. Made with grapes from Washington State and aged in an American Oak barrel at the Georgia Winery’s farm in Chattanooga Valley, this full-bodied wine has hints of black cherries, tobacco and jam. Its high tannins and slightly acidic finish makes this wine the perfect pair for dark chocolate, ribeye steak and braised short ribs.
"Customer feedback has been great so far!” Said Jesse Taymore, the Manager at Georgia Winery. “We’ve specialized in making sweet southern wine for so long; but now our remodel has enhanced our tasting center so much, that in turn it has brought back a market for us to make some really superb dry wines as well as partner with Debarge Winery!"
Cabernet Sauvignon is now available for $27.95 at the Georgia Winery’s Tasting Room in Ringgold, GA. Also available on their dry wine tasting selection. Share a bottle and enjoy the experience. Cheers!
