Wakoola Wine Corner
Harvest season in the vineyards of north Georgia is coming to an end, but the time to enjoy wine has just begun. There are many varieties of Georgia Wines to discover and to enjoy when celebrating the autumn season and the approaching holidays. Wine makes an excellent gift. It is timeless, classic, tasteful, and works for almost any occasion. Presented to the host of any party, wine is a thoughtful way to show your gratitude and help Georgia vineyards.
Georgia is known as the Peach State, but more and more people are beginning to discover the fine wines produced by the vineyards and wineries of north Georgia. These wines are gaining national recognition and fueling the emergence of this area as a prominent wine region. The mountains in north Georgia have a delightful combination of the perfect terrain, soil, drainage, and elevation necessary for vineyards like Wolf Mountain, Frogtown, Three Sisters, Blackstock, Chateau Elan, Tiger Mountain and Persimmon Creek to produce their award-winning wines. The soil composition is very much like that of Italy’s Piedmont region, which produces some of the most prestigious wines in the world.
With grape varieties such as Merlot, Viognier, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Vidal, and Tannat, the wines produced in our area rival some of the finest wines in the world. Wakoola Water Gardens in Cumming, Georgia has made it their mission to stock our new wine corner with one of the largest collections of wines from north Georgia. We do this not only to support the local economy but to help spread the word about one of the “best kept secrets”.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to try these wonderful wines, come by Wakoola and let one of our associates show you some of the unique selections that we offer. Sample varieties like a Sangiovese from Frogtown Vineyards, or a Chardonnay / Viognier blend from Wolf Mountain, or a White Merlot from Blackstock Vineyard. If you are already familiar with the great wines of north Georgia, stop by and grab your favorite one to share with friends or to bring to your next holiday gathering.
Wakoola’s new wine corner is currently stocked with wines from two other categories as well: organic and sustainable wines, and “Way Cool” wines (wines we love, not easily found elsewhere). Organic wines are becoming very popular and we are stocking Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. We also have several selections of their sustainable wines including Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. “Way Cool” wines include restaurant selections, great tasting bargains, and some excellent wines with cool bottles, fun labels or stories.
Let us create gift baskets with the wines, on their own or in combination with other items from our gift collection. For example, a bottle of Three Sisters Vineyard’s Fat Boy Red can be combined with a “Danger Men Cooking” apron and oven mitt for a nice gift for dad. Or a bottle of Frogtown Vineyard Vineaux Rose can be combined with a set of garden gloves, trowel, and a ceramic planter for the gardener in your life.
Our “Way Cool” wines are priced from $4.99 to $12.99, organic and sustainable wines $10.49 to $18.99, and a large selection of north Georgia wines ranging from $14.99 to $26.99. From Reds, to Whites, to Sangria, to Rieslings, Wakoola has something for every budget or occasion.
