Wine making has come a long way east of the Mississippi. A good example is the 400-acre Montaluce Winery and Estate (22- acres under vine) and an awesome-view experience in the 25,000 sq. ft. Le Vigne Restaurant. About 20 minutes from Dahlonega, GA, Montaluce is one of a handful of wineries producing great whites and Michelin-quality cuisine. A southern gem for a special occasion.
