Owner description: We are a fully operational vineyard and winery, growing vines on 4.5 acres of North Georgia countryside. We are the "baby" of the county vineyards, but we take great pride in our work, and are proud to set our own pace to viticulture. Our staff and owner got into this trade with a true desire to make great wine and provide a fun and inviting atmosphere for our guests. These things we do with great pride! History Established in 2007. Cavender Creek Vineyards and Winery got its start with the foresight of Raymond and Donna Castleberry, as well as with the volunteer help of family and friends, in 2007. In the summer of 2015, Raymond and Donna finally called for a second "retirement", and sold Cavender Creek Vineyards to our new proprietor, Claire Livingston. The first vines planted at Cavender were two red grape varietals; Cabernet Sauvignon (a vitis vinifera species) and Norton/Cynthiana (a vitis aestivalis species), with our first harvest being in the summer of 2009. The third plot (Petit Manseng), a small white grape, was planted in 2008 and premiered its first vintage in the Spring of 2011. Here at Cavender we endeavor to produce hand-crafted wines that reflect the personal attention to detail and "pampering", from planting to bottling.

Cute little winery. Very friendly people. Great prices. Excellent choices of sweet wines. Great white muscadine wine! Cool souvenir items too.

Great atmosphere, very reasonably priced wine, and it was the best tasting wine we tried in Dahlonega. Staff was friendly and sociable. Nothing to complain about at all.

Happened upon this boutique winery, and enjoyed the staff's knowledge of wine.
Would like to return and rent the 100 year old house that they had moved here from TN.

We visited the vineyard during the wine festival and although they were probably busier than normal, we did not feel rushed. They had a great selection of wine and we enjoyed that we were allowed to pick any 4 wines to taste that we wanted. We were not restricted to a specific menu like some of the other tasting rooms. They served appetizers such as humus and cheese spread as well. I also think they had some of the more unique wines when compared to the other local wineries. We bought their peach white wine and enjoyed it at home. We were also impressed that the cost to buy the bottles were half that of the other places!

We had a group of six, none of whom had been to a winery before, and every one of us had a delightful time! The wine was, for the most part, excellent, and the prices were even better, but it was the atmosphere that really had us blown away. The gentleman behind the wine counter was quick to notice when we had finished our sample and would step out to bring the next one right to us. He was incredibly knowledgeable, and his laid-back humor had us laughing the whole time. The grounds were small but beautiful; it was truly a perfect afternoon!
