23 Jun Greatness starts in the field
Greatness starts in the field.
To make something great, you have to start with something great.
Its been a dry summer so far here in north Georgia wine county, but the grapes are coming along nicely and the vineyard managers are hoping for a great harvest.
We have simple recipes, with ingredients you can pronounce, so its really necessary to start with great fruit.
Staying true to our core beliefs, all of our products are made from fruit that grows in our region.
We’re fortunate that that the mountains of Georgia are the perfect climate for a variety of wine grapes and we get to enjoy watching the vines change throughout the year and sometimes even help our winery friends at the harvest.
Our Vineyard Spread and Vineyard Fire are both made with Chambourcin that we source from a local winery here on the Unicoi Wine Trail. Chambourcin is a French-American hybrid grape and grows well in our region.
For a true Georgia mountain entertaining experience, serve Vineyard Fire with soft and creamy goat cheese, and a local wine from one of the many vineyards here in our area. Our current local crushes, pun intended, are Habersham Winery 2014 Chambourcin, Serenity Cellars Traminette and The Cottage Vineyard and Winery 2014 Vidal Blanc and Stonewall Creek 2015 Yukari.
Come visit the wineries on the Unicoi Wine Trail and tell them The Jelly People sent you.
