Ott Farms and Vineyards


Ott Farms and Vineyard located in Ellijay, Georgia on 20 acres of Gilmer County's most breathtaking mountain views.  We currently have 4 acres of French American hybrid grapes planted with 3 acres producing currently and hopes to add more in the future.


Michael Ott and his blushing bride Lee have created superior quality wine from their locally grown Seyval Blanc, Chambourcin, Traminette, and Lenoire grapes.  Michael and Lee also source their muscadine from a local grower in South Georgia and are proud to craft their wine with unique qualities remnant of their past memories and present love. 

Together they have built their vineyard from the ground up, making their own wines and they have finally realized their dream with the opening of their Tasting Room and the production of award-winning wines.


Ott Farms and Vineyards features an 1800 square foot tasting room with a 30ft x 30ft vaulted covered pavilion and an 8ft x 80ft covered porch ready to accommodate you rain or shine. 

Chateau Meichtry Winery


In 1921, at the age of 25, Stephan Meichtry Traveled to America from the canton of Valais, Switzerland with only a suitcase and an adventure for life.He settled in Maspeth, New York, where he would later raise his two children and further develop his passion for wine. It is believed that when he came to America, he brought his own root stock from Switzerland and grew the vines he used for his lifelong wine-making. A stock from these same vines is now planted at Chateau Meichtry Vineyard. Although Stephan has passed, his love for life lives on through his daughter Doris and his appreciation for viticulture and wine in his Granddaughter Karin

Engelheim Vineyards


Engelheim Vineyards focuses on growing outstanding grapes to produce the highest quality of wines. The owners, Gary and Jan Engel and their family, decided to purchase the land that is now known as Engelheim (German for “Angel Home”) in 2007. After Colonel Engel retired from the Army in 2004 and upon his return from Iraq and Kuwait, they decided to live their dream of living in the North Georgia Mountains to grow the finest quality grapes. The Engel family planted their first vines in 2009 and harvested their first vintage in 2011; Engelheim Vineyards has been going strong ever since. For the Engel family, it is about quality of life and touching other lives. Gary’s love for and family heritage of farming has driven the Engels to establish the vineyards, a tasting lodge, and the winery. Their dream also focuses upon building a future for their family.
