Dahlonega, Georgia has been named “Wine Tasting Capital of Georgia.” Thus the Dahlonega Walking Tours proudly present the Grapes and Ghosts Wine Tours.

On this exclusive tour, visitors will be taken to five different locations where they will be able to taste wine while listening to stories about our town’s distinctive history and haunted tales from each stop. 

At our first stop, Dahlonega Tasting Room, guests will get to experience Dahlonega’s oldest tasting room, located in the town’s original post office, while taste testing wines from Habersham Winery. Afterwards, we will take visitors to the Carriage House, home to two of our square’s tasting rooms: Georgia Winery of Dahlonega and Taste. Georgia Winery of Dahlonega is renowned for its award winning sweet wines, while Taste is celebrated for its beautiful presentation and charming atmosphere. 

At our third stop, Canvas and Cork, guests will get experience the old Stanton Store House, built in 1884, that has since been transformed into an inimitable art gallery and wine tasting room. 

Finally, we will conclude the tour by taking our visitors to the Corkscrew Café where they will be able to purchase beer and wine, and see one of Dahlonega’s most well-preserved historical sites: the 1854 jail cells. 

You may reserve your spot on the tour online at or at our office located at 19 East Main Street on the upstairs porch just above Spirits Tavern. We can be reached at 706-482-8795 for questions. 

Our tours begin every Friday and Saturday night at 5:30 p.m. (more times available online) at 19 East Main Street on the upstairs porch. Please feel free to check in early and relax on our front porch, built in 1872, or in our decorated office as you wait for your tour to begin! 

Many of our tours have given guests first hand experiences with the paranormal. So, come join us for a taste of Dahlonega!
