|Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery|
Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery is a small family farm situated on a hundred and eighty acres in the heart of the Frogtown District in historic Lumpkin County, Georgia. Located eight miles northeast of the site of the first major US gold rush, Dahlonega, the farm's name was inspired by the property's spectacular view of Lumpkin County's Three Sisters Mountain. While no one knows the origin of the name of Three Sisters Mountain, local residents refer to its three distinctive peaks as Wild Cat, McBrayer, and Rattlesnake. Established in 1996 and bonded in 2000, Three Sisters Vineyards holds the distinction of being "Dahlonega's First Family Farm Winery."
Three Sisters Winery began production during August of 2000 and is Lumpkin County's first bonded farm winery since prohibition (BWGA43). All of our family members are involved in the wine making process. The first harvest produced nearly 2000 cases. Current production is nearly 4000 cases. French & American oak barrels and stainless steel tanks are used in production and aging of our estate wines. All of our wines are handcrafted from 100% Georgia grown winegrapes from Lumpkin County's very first vineyard, using old world traditions and the lastest technology.
Three Sisters Vineyards' property is located in the Frogtown community of Lumpkin County in the Chestatee River Valley. Elevation is 1800 feet above sea level. We believe it is the "perfect place" to grow a wide variety of winegrapes. Sharon's brother Ken VanDusen joined the family business in 1996 and acts as Vineyard Manager.

Three Sisters is proudly Lumpkin County's very first vineyard & farm winery since prohibition times.
