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.

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
Grapes and Ladders is a family owned and operated vineyard, winery and tasting room. Cindy and Glenn Jackson bought 10 acres of rolling pastureland in Ellijay, GA in 2013. They took time to build their vineyard by planting a combination of Chambourcin, Merlot, Zinfandel and Lenoire grapes. Then opened the tasting room in October of 2020. Their dream was to create a friendly place where guests could relax with a glass of wine, visit with friends, listen to music, and forget about their cares for a while. We believe Grapes and Ladders has done that. Providing great wines in a relaxing kid and pet friendly environment. We have a beautiful tasting room with a patio, picnic tables and lots of outdoor space. We can’t wait for you to see it and have an unforgettable experience.
