6 Helen Georgia Wineries to Visit for Relaxing Fun (2023)

Friends touring a winery

Local wineries are one of North Georgia’s best-kept secrets. The wine smells (aromas and bouquets) are all unique because they come from different growing conditions and varieties of grapes! Not to mention each local professional winery/brewery often has something unique and charming to attract visitors.

Helen, Georgia has six wineries that all offer something special. Each brings its own local charm and flavors. In this article, I’ll talk a little more about each winery so you can choose the one(s) that is right for you!

1. Habersham Winery

Habersham Winery provides excellent examples of high-quality Georgia wines. Habersham has been producing award-winning wines since 1983!

This family-owned winery has an extensive selection of different wines made with vinifera, French-American, and Southern Muscadine grapes.

  • And so much more!

They even have winemaker experiments for sale for the bold.

For visitors, the wine-tasting room that is open daily is a delightful hangout area with live entertainment, gourmet foods, imported cheese, and wine specialty items. Try to visit during their annual winefest !

Interesting Fact: Before the American Revolutionary War, the English government had sought to establish Georgia as a wine-making country. But that vision wouldn’t be realized until centuries later.

2. Creekstone Winery

Creekstone Winery is the cousin of Habersham Winery. The Creekstone label formed its own winery in 2019 after nearly 40 years of producing wines as part of Habersham.

Just like its predecessor, Creekstone is a master of combining fruits, spices, and flowers in matches made in heaven! Creekstone has no shortage of wine selection.

You have your choice of

  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Chambourcin
  • Sauvignon blanc

You can taste 5 of these wines in the wine tasting room for $14 + tax per person, without the need for reservations! During this experience, there is live entertainment, such as the Creekstone After Hours Music Series which is every Friday and Saturday.

And if you really like their wine, it can be shipped to select states .

3. Fox Winery

The Fox Winery takes pride in its unique flavor profiles and attention to detail. Though Fox is a smaller operation than others, they have earned several awards for their wines.

Their wines are packed with Georgia charm, and their potency pairs them perfectly with traditional Southern-comfort cooking.

They also have a delightful gift shop so that you can take samples of Fox Winery home with you. And if you’re needing wine glasses, check these out from Amazon.

Their rustic winery in Alto has plenty of little spaces for you to find solitude and have your own personal getaway. Or you can find a setting to be with your friends.

6. The Cottage Vineyard & Winery

A few decades after being stationed in Europe, the founder Jim and his wife Sandra established their 29-acre dream vineyard in Georgia. These owners take excellent care of their winery and share the lovely experience with all their visitors.

The atmosphere is beautiful as you take in mountain views, while the sunset washes the Georgia pines in bold oranges and pinks. It’s just the spot for any private event, which the Cottage Vineyard & Winery caters to.

The Cottage has 15 different wines to choose from between various dry, semi-sweet, and sweet options. They include Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Meunier, Muscat, Syrah, and Viognier.

VIP Southern Tours

Check out helen's wine country with ease.

In 2013, Christina Ernst set out to help her hometown draw more tourists to the area by launching her company, VIP Southern Tours. It came as the result of local county officials and business owners seeking her advice on the region's future in tourism. She jumped on the opportunity to play a part in the gorgeous mountains of Helen Georgia, where her father launched the first retail store, and continue carrying the entrepreneurial legacy of her family.


VIP Southern Tours provides the finest all-inclusive wine tour experience on the East Coast. Every week their team selects different vineyards for tours to travel to, providing a unique wine tour experience each time.  With a community she's known her whole life and vineyard owners she's developed close relationships with, she's been able to create a new & unique enterprise for the area.

They're goal is to give their guests an enjoyable and leisurely experience, and the experience starts with the driver picking up guests from their nearby location. The well-trained and charismatic drivers narrate the journey and interact with each group of guests for a fun and educational adventure. Upon arrival at the vineyard, guests enjoy a wine tasting of the various wines offered. At lunchtime, their personalized gourmet meal is handed out to this group of relaxed travelers.

The alternative to this great tour company is a private transportation service like a taxi. For around the same price, an inclusive tour from a caring company is the way to go, in fact, VIP Southern Tours cost includes the wine tasting so it's an unbeatable deal.

When going on a tour, vacationers appreciate the melting pot of diversity in the group. New friends make the vineyard and wine tasting more enjoyable. For patrons preferring privacy and seclusion, they've got them covered with personalized private tours.


Growing up in the area, as well as owning a travel agency for 20 years, has uniquely qualified Christina and her company to make an experience not easily forgotten. She knows what it's like to get lost and have a miserable trip, and she's motivated to prevent those pitfalls while ensuring an enjoyable and safe trip.

With over 150 reviews, VIP Southern Tours has a rating of 4.8 and one of the main reasons is the drivers.  Drivers know the area, interact with the groups, and they adapt to the needs of the group.  These drivers also notice if someone has drunk too much, so they can get them back to where they're staying, even when it's inconvenient to the driver. VIP Southern Tours goes out of its way for the safety and enjoyment of its guests.

Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, honeymoon adventure, relaxing retreat, or a group outing, VIP Southern Tours is the journey to go on. Like many of their reviewers, you may find this tour to be one of the best days you've ever had.

Nestled in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, Helen is not only known for its Bavarian-inspired architecture and scenic views but also for its charming wineries.

Table of Contents

Helpful Tips for Visiting Helen, GA Wineries

  • Most wineries are not open every day. Be sure to check their operating hours before visiting.
  • While snacks are available at many of the wineries, there is only one on this list that serves up a meal. You may want to bring your own food or pack a picnic lunch.
  • Winery tours are not common at these wineries. Delicious tastings and leisurely days or nights at the vineyard are the stars of the show. Don’t expect a guided tour of the wine making process or vineyards.
  • Several of these locations are tasting rooms only without the option of sitting outdoors for an hour or two. Be sure to read each description carefully before planning a visit.
  • Wine slushies are a Georgia thing that you must try!

These are just a few of the best things to do for couples in Helen, Georgia ! Be sure to see them all!

1. Habersham Winery

Established in 1983, Habersham Winery holds the distinction of being one of the oldest and largest wineries in Georgia.

It is located just outside of downtown Helen in Nacoochee Village, which is across from the very popular Nora Mill Granary and next to Nacooche Adventures, a zip-lining location in Helen. This is a destination well worth the extra minute or two drive beyond the tourist region on the river.

The 200-acre property has rolling hills of vineyards that make great photo backdrops, too.

Downstairs, the wine cave is a fun place for groups and large gatherings. You can see the wine cave, which is the only known wine cave in Georgia according to Yonah Mountain Vineyards, when you book a Winery Select Tour.

Yonah Mountain Vineyards is striving to be as sustainable as possible. You will definitely notice this as you drive into the winery and see the solar panels in the field which provide more than 60% of their electricity, or the 14 electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot.

A Tesla Solar Roof, electric forklift and on-site bee hives for harvesting honey are just a few more of the sustainable business practices.

Named after their parents, Cenita Vineyards and Winery is truly a family-run destination that is a labor of love! In fact, the vineyards are now planted on land that was the site of the family’s first dairy. Four generations having been farming the land.
