Sharp Mountain Vineyards
Discover Sharp Mountain Vineyard Winery, Tasting Room & Gift Shop.
In Jasper, Georgia lies the first vineyard in this Region. The vineyard was established in March 1995 on the 26 acre estate with a breathtaking view of Sharp Mountain herself.
Ron Rathgeb began his labor of love planting: Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, and Viognier vines. Since 2000, there have been additional plantings of Pinot Gris, Primitivo, Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese and Trebbiano.
Sharp Mountain Vineyards operates on a simple but essential principle; to produce the finest wine, you must begin with the finest fruit. With vines that are all European Vinifera, SMV produces approximately 800 cases per year which enables Ron & Jody to give their award winning wines the kind of individual attention that makes each wine special. This quest for perfection requires personal attention to every detail; from employing tried-and-true “winegrowing” practices to personally harvesting and processing every grape.
Pack a picnic and enjoy a glass of wine in our outdoor weather proof pavilion. Drink in the beautiful view – rows and rows of espaliered vines against a backdrop of blue-green rolling hills and a commanding view of Sharp Mountain. Browse our tasting room and gift shop for gourmet foods and unique gifts.
From start to finish, Sharp Mountain Vineyards wines are truly hand-crafted in the old world fashion
The result is more than a fine wine: it is an experience.
