Views won’t make up for bad decisions
May 2021
Great view & surroundings, BUT....ordered a flight, which was not given out at one time. I had to go back to them for each of my 5 types as I finished them! They told me other wineries do the same, which in my experience, is simply untrue. Then they pour your next wine into the same glass, not even rinsing it out first. Neither of those decisions was well thought out.

Disappointing
May 2021
We had heard this was a reliably good stop, but were very disappointed in the wines. So much so we actually dumped the wine and left and moved onto another vineyard. The food truck and views were great, but there were no signs of any type of COVID precautions and the wines (that we chose at least) were not worth drinking.

A perfect place to spend an afternoon
Mar. 2021
My partner and I have been living in Atlanta for two years now and love going to visit vineyards in North Georgia. We find it an easy way to get out but still keep safe and socially distant from others (usually).

Ott Farms is exactly the type of winery we love to go to! It has a big indoor space—which was completely empty except for the person serving wine at the bar. There was ample room on the outside for everyone there that day to be safe and distant. It overlooks the vineyard, which wasn't in season but still very pretty. And in the distance is a view of the mountains which was really nice. There are circles of adirondack chairs for people to sit in as well as picnic tables and a pagoda where they host live music on the weekends.

There is also food available but mostly appetizers and dips. We ordered pimento cheese which was delicious but there are a few options to choose from if you get hungry while sharing a bottle of wine. We ordered a darker, dry wine but I'll say the wine was amazing, but there weren't a lot of options. But the options they do have are very good. I'm sure that any type of wine drinker would be satisfied with whatever they order.

The staff was very friendly and there were some German Shepherds living nearby that were keeping everyone entertained as they ran through the vineyard—but never came up to us or disturbed anyone. They kept their distance.

Finding the winery was easy and it was signed well. There was plenty of parking for people there. I highly recommend this place if you're in the Blue Ridge, GA area looking for something fun to do on a beautiful afternoon. We will definitely be back at some point.

Beautiful view, wonderful wines!
Nov. 2020
We started and ended our trip at Ott Farms and Vineyards! We stopped in to burn time prior to check in at our cabin and the wines were so wonderful I had to make a stop before leaving town to stock up. I highly suggest their chamborcin wine for anyone who enjoys a tart wine! The view is fabulous, the wines are delicious and the customer service is outstanding! Keep doing what you’re doing! See ya next time!

Closed but not impressed by employee
Aug. 2020 • Couples
This review is soley based on first impression and not the wine. Unfortunately we were in the area and decided to stop in, but they were closed. The employee inside was very rude towards my wife and felt we should have known they were closed. First impressions are important for return business, hopefully it was just a bad day. But we met a very friendly women outside who directed us to a very nice winery just down the road (Cartecay) which we purchased several nice wines from. Again, we did not have a chance to sample their wines, but this review is based on our stop today. I'd still recommend if you like wine to stop and decide for yourself. Hopefully your experience will be better then ours.

Great wine with a view

Beautiful scenery, friendly staff, and great wine. The staff was very nice and welcoming during our visit. I tried a few different wines and they were all very good. The atmosphere was relaxing and we had a wonderful time.

Great place to hang out
Jul. 2020
I put up a bunch more photos. What I did not realize from previous reviews is the ambiance offered and it stacks up in the world of social distancing. First of all, there are a LOT of areas to hang out socially distant. There is the inside tasting room, 5 tastes for $8, offered on weekends, not much mask wearing, but you can if you want. Second there is a covered area next to the tasting room that was very open. Third is the outdoor table/chairs that are adjacent to the building, Next there is another set of table/chairs before the lawn. Lastly there is a bunch of seating in the yard, close to the live music. Almost forgot a giant patio with nothing yet, but much room to expand. There was a food truck outside for eats. They also had covers for the food, see pics, to deter the flies. Really fun place, great owners, check it out....

A wonderful wine tasting experience!
Jul. 2020 • Family
Ott Family Farms and Vinyard is a wonderful small town farm and winery in North Georgia that overlooks the Appalachian Mountains. The staff are professional and friendly and offer a great wine tasting experience.

They offer live music, food trucks, hors d'oeuvre, and an assortment of wine-themed merchandise and jams. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean and homey. The main building is a log cabin themed and is rather cozy and welcoming. The wines are delicious ( I recommend the Summer Peach Wine) and the back of the building offer picturesque views of the Vinyard and mountains. I would recommend visiting at least once if you get the chance! If you do visit, make sure you ask for Kelly! :)

My only concerns or remarks are that they have a limited wine selection and the time I visited (July, 2020) they didn’t follow COVID-19 regulations in regards to social distancing standards and wearing of face masks within the main building. But other than that, it was a wonderful experience!
