If you're Bordeaux with the day-to-day, the time is ripe for a getaway to north Georgia's wine country. Raise your glass to the Sylvan Valley Lodge with this week's Escape, and you'll be toasting the Appalachian Mountains in no time.
Pour yourself a two-night stay for two in a Lodge Guestroom, including daily breakfast for two, a wine tasting in the lodge tasting room, a bottle of your favorite wine from the tasting, and evening wine and cheese.
After a hearty breakfast and a cup of freshly brewed coffee, explore the premium-label four-acre property, which boasts landscaped gardens and coursing waterfalls. Then, uncork a day of hiking or wildlife viewing in nearby Unicoi State Park.
Varietals are the spice of life, and you'd be hard-pressed to find an area with more to do: Canoe or kayak the Chattahoochee River with a rental from Wildwood Outfitters; wander around Nacoochee Village, the Village of Sautee, and the alpine village of Helen; or visit more than a dozen nearby wineries.
Then return to the lodge for an included wine tasting and savor the samples from local Georgia wineries—you'll even go home with a bottle of your favorite vino to enjoy at your leisure.
The glass is always half-full at the Sylvan Valley Lodge, so please your palate with an Escape to Georgia wine country.
