Rosé and Blush

916 Crane Creek Road | Young Harris, GA 30582 | 706.379.1236

Crane Creek Vineyards sits high in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia, just three miles north of the quaint college town of Young Harris in the shadow of Brasstown Bald, the state’s highest peak. Less than two hours from Atlanta – yet a world away…

Blessed with a unique microclimate, a combination of warm, dry summer days, cool mountain nights and well-drained mineral soils, which allows us to cultivate and harvest grapes that produce complex wines with fresh, assertive aromas and concentrated flavors.

Crane Creek Vineyards is a family run business in the truest sense of the word. Members of our small staff are all family members, even if they are not part of my blood family. All of our “family” members have their own specialties and unique personalities but are all experienced in each facet of the winemaking process and other activities at the vineyard. We may spend one day together harvesting, and the next weekend working at one of our many public or private functions. Each day and each season is filled with rewards as we work day to day with the land, the vines, and the incredible backdrop of our mountain home

Mountain Harvest Blush

A blend of our Vidal, Chardonel and Chambourcin. This refreshing wine, served slightly chilled has lively fruity aromas and flavors. It is a great summertime wine, excellent apéritif and actually pairs nicely with many foods, particularly salty finger foods like tapenade spread, olives, bruschetta and some mild cheeses.
