Visit north Georgia’s newest vineyard, Ott Farms! Enjoy wine tastings, wine by the glass or by the bottle in the beauty of the mountains. Family owned and operated, Ott Farms is another excellent new addition to the Ocoee River area’s long list of attractions!
Ott Farms and Vineyard is located in Ellijay, Georgia on 7+ acres of Gilmer County’s most beautiful mountain views. They currently have 4 acres of French-American hybrid grapes planted. Ott Farms and Vineyards also features an 1800 square foot tasting room with a 30 ft x 30 ft vaulted covered pavilion and an 8 ft x 80 ft covered porch ready to accommodate you rain or shine!
Michael Ott and his fiancee Lee Delk have created superior quality wine from their locally grown Seyval Blanc, Chambourcin, Blanc du Bois, Lenoir, and Lamanto grapes. Michael and Lee also source their muscadines from a local grower in south Georgia and are proud to craft their wine with qualities as unique as the Ocoee River area!
Together they have built their vineyard from the ground up, clearing the land, planting plants, setting posts, running wire, hanging trellis systems, pruning, training, harvesting and finally making their own wines with the help of other local vineyards. Michael and Lee have finally realized their dream with the opening of their Tasting Room and the production of wines from their own grapes!
Blend of Seyval Blanc and Traminette shows notes of honeysuckle, pineapple and melon. On the palate you will experience honey and citrus with a smooth buttery finish.
Chambourcin was pressed right away to preserve the color and fruit and barrel aged for one month. On the palate the strawberry and citrus lead the way to a crisp finish.
This Carlos White Muscadine wine is a sensory overload wine recalling memories of childhood. On the nose is a nuttiness with earthy aromas of sweet lemon grass, honeysuckle and citrus. It’s like summertime in a glass!
If you’re interested in traveling the "Wine Highway" here in our area, ask a member of the Ocoee Adventure Center staff for their recommendations and they’ll be sure you have Ott Farms and Vineyard on your list!
