Overview
More
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! History Established in 2007. Cavender Creek Vineyards and Winery got its start with the Raymond and Donna Castleberry 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.

Cavendar Creek Vi eyards offer a great atmosphere in a homey setting. The wine is excellent, live music on Saturdays and Sundays. Be on the lookout for Blue Canoe, a local music group that performs at Cavendar Creek. Cabins available also.

Super sweet young women helped us during the tasting. The place itself is beautiful. The kids played with their dogs while we tasted! They also had an area outside with games. Kids did not want to leave. That was a first at a winery lol....More

We loved the wine and the various nearby animals. Cavender Creek is not a trendy place to be seen. It is rural and simple and very enjoyable.
