Three Sisters Vineyards Cynthiana Lumpkin County 2004

Member Review by RSHall:

A deep rich colour, pleanty of fruit on the nose. Palate with black cherry, cedar and butterscotch. I would not have guessed that it wasn’t vitis vinifera on a blind tasting (it's actually vitis aestivalis). Tasting friends commented "It could be French" (echoing Thomas Jefferson's description “the American Claret”). There is no “foxy” flavour like other native American wines members have encountered elsewhere! Pairing with dark chocolate (recommended by the winemaker) was not a success, though.

Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery is dedicated to presenting a small family oriented farm that is a destination for tourists and wine enthusiasts visiting Northeast Georgia. After purchasing the Lupmkin County property in the late summer of 1995, Sharon and Doug Paul began nearly a year of site planning for the new vineyard. The farm's name is inspried by the beautiful view of Lumpkin County's Three Sisters Mountain to the west. Three Sisters Vineyards, Inc. was incorporated the following summer on July 19, 1996 to cultivate the growth and production of winegrapes. Sharon Paul's brother Ken VanDusen joined the family business in October 1996 as the Vineyard Operations Manager. The Winery began operations in August of 2000. The Tasting Room opened September of 2001. Eighteen acres of grapes thrive on our mountainside property. Situated on 184 acres between the historic mountain villages of Dahlonega and Cleveland/Helen, Lumpkin County's first vineyard, Three Sisters holds the historic distinction of being "Dahlonega's First Family Farm Winery" and Dahlonega-Lumpkin County's Founding Winegrowers.
