A deep respect for the land and the cultivation of fine fruit.

The first vineyards at Tiger Mountain were planted on the five-generation-old Ezzard farm in Northeast Georgia in 1995, and the first vintages date to 1999. The 2,000-foot altitude, cool mountain nights and well-drained slopes, which consist of the decayed granite soils of the ancient Blue Ridge, are an ideal terroir for certain European vinifera and the native American Norton. A divided trellis system prevents excessive canopy, allowing sunlight and movement of air though the vines. The grapes are harvested by hand, and the wine is made using traditional European small winery methods in the fermentation, barrel aging and blending processes.

The vinifera grapes cultivated at Tiger are carefully selected French and Portuguese reds--Cabernet Franc, Touriga Nacional, Tannat, Malbec, Mourvedre  as well as the native American Norton; white grapes are Viognier and the rare Petit Manseng. The award winning wines are sold in Georgia's major cities and are listed in top restaurants, including four five stars.

Tiger Mountain Vineyards takes pride in its handcrafted wines which reflect a deep respect for this unique land and its fruit.
