Lisa Ezzard/Tiger Mountain Vineyards

Tiger Mountain Vineyards, a boutique North Georgia winery, cultivates all of its grapes and produces all of its handcrafted wines right here in the mountains of Rabun County. The winery, along with its historic Red Barn Cafe, is jointly owned by four native Georgians, John and Martha Ezzard and John and Marilyn McMullan.

Tiger Mountain Vineyards is proud of the old-world methods used in creating their handcrafted wines. They produce traditional dry wines in the European style from each of their grape varieties, three red blends, and an award-winning semi-dry Rose as well as a late-harvest dessert wine. Their red wines are fermented in small-batch open tanks. Each tank is meticulously monitored and tended by hand. White wines are fermented in French oak barrels and bottled precisely when the desired crispness is achieved. They barrel age their reds for two years in American oak. All of Tiger Mountain wines are delicately pressed using water pressure. While continuing to focus on traditional methods, Tiger Mountain Vineyards has recently invested in expert consultation so that they may continue improving each new vintage of their top-quality wines.
