Welcome to Cartecay Vineyards

Cartecay Vineyards is located in Ellijay, GA, situated in the Eastern part of Gilmer County, in the Cartecay region.

The Southern Appalachians in North Georgia are ideal for growing wine grapes. The elevation, the soil and the climate combine to produce wine grapes of the highest quality and subsequently, fine wines.

Cartecay Vineyards has Western facing slopes, which allow for the vines to receive maximum sun exposure, elevations ranging from 1650 ft. to 1750 ft., sloping landscapes to help keep the vines' "feet" dry and clay loam soils, which are conductive to growing grapes.

Cartecay Vineyards was planted in the Spring of 2008 with two varieties, Vidal Blanc and Merlot. Since 2008 four more varieties have been planted; Traminette, Norton (Cynthiana), Catawba and Cabernet Sauvignon, with more planned.
