The Appalachian foothills of North Georgia prove fertile ground for grapes, hosting a burgeoning wine region with boutique vineyards and some of the finest wines in the South. That Appalachian spirit of yesteryear has never faded, either. "Arts and crafts, including pottery making, basket weaving, and quilting, are still practiced in the region," says Frommer's. "At all local festivals and even on the front porch on a Saturday night, the sound of bluegrass music still fills the air."
Surrounded by wine country in the Appalachian hills, Sylvan Valley Lodge provides a relaxing luxury retreat in Sautee, Georgia, just 90 minutes north of Atlanta. The four-acre property boasts landscaped gardens and coursing waterfalls outside, not to mention comfortable accommodations and an on-site wine bar inside. Each Standard Lodge Guestroom offers one king, one queen, or two double beds, as well as satellite TV and forest-view windows that open to the fresh air. In the mornings, you'll wake to a breakfast with options like cage-free eggs, hot entrées, and fresh-squeezed orange juice.
Varietals are the spice of life in North Georgia, and you'd be hard-pressed to find an area with more to do: hike along the Chattahoochee River; wander around Nacoochee Village, the Village of Sautee, and the alpine village of Helen; or visit more than a dozen nearby wineries. The Knot Wine Bar of Sylvan Valley Lodge hosts a tasting of four local Georgia wines—you'll even go home with a bottle of your favorite vino from the tasting.
