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.

Everyone at the winery was very friendly and we enjoyed the wine. After the tasting, we were able to walk the grounds and see the vines.

Don't be fooled when you drive up ... it's very rustic looking and smaller than other wineries in the area but has some good reasonably priced wine. The staff was very friendly and there was live music for us to sit on the patio and enjoy on an unseasonably warm winter day. They also offer cheese and cracker trays to enjoy with your tasting. It's worth a stop if you are in the area.

Cavender Creek is a little more rustic than the rest of the wineries in the area, but the wines were pretty good. They had a great white that was dry and really good for people that usually prefer red wines. The staff was not as attentive as other wineries but the atmosphere was still friendly and relaxed. They had some live music while we were there and it was nice to sit and relax with our tasting. The tasting pours were also much smaller here than at other wineries.

Tracey was the best at explaining everything to my wife and I. He was so well versed and he has an incredible and fun personality! He also gave us a tour of the cabin that you can stay at on the property. He was great and we look forward to visiting him again!
