Wine enthusiasts rejoice, I have found a hidden wine treasure!
An hour drive North of Atlanta will land you at Sharp Mountain Vineyards, Georgia’s 3rd oldest grapes.
We started with a tasting, which includes 5 wines. Below is what I chose and how I felt about it.
Usually a chardonnay gal, I surprised myself and went with a full pour of their ‘clean and crisp’ sauv blanc. MMM, would so drink right now! (but it’s 11am so…I digress)
Don’t let the comic sans font throw you off from the seriousness they take in their old-world style wine crafting; they grow, produce and bottle all of their own wine!
You’ll notice on my notes sheet, I wrote “only pinot noir in Georgia” which I was really pumped on as that’s my go-to red. Because of our high humidity and heat, it’s very difficult to grow in our state. Yet somehow, it’s been done, and quite well! Sharp’s was dryer than most I’ve had. Won’t even begin to sound like I know it’s because of this or that, I just know it was tasty!
One quick look at my IG and you’ll notice I’m pretty dang fond of this here (above) color. Even with impending Summer days, I don’t see it as a Fall-only pallet either. May be harder to find, but I’m on it!
Another thing I’ve been all about is-basics; you know, those staple pieces that can be mixed and matched within your wardrobe. Leaning less and less away from statement items simply because with my casual workplace and hobbies, the flashy pieces just don’t get as much wear.
At the moment, you could call my closet a ‘capsule wardrobe’ or at least the closest to I’ve ever been. Most of my favorite basics come from Madewell. Crew necks are also on repeat at the moment. Unless a client visit or shoot is happening, you’ll find me in a basic paired with classic jeans most week days.
A couple that stays together, dresses alike – that’s the saying, right?!
Back to wine, I would absolutely recommend visiting Sharp Mountain. If not only for the tasty wine but also the friendly staff and view of the mountain. There was a small group of ladies that posted up on a picnic blanket with the mountain as a backdrop, perfection if you ask me!
