Big Door Vineyards in White, GA
Big Door Vineyards opened its big doors to the public in 2018. This beautiful vineyard is set in a valley of vine-covered hills. A small pier juts out into a pond fed by a relaxing waterfall. You can walk the trail around the pond or even head into the vines for a stroll.
There is plenty of covered outdoor seating around the grounds, on the covered patio, and inside the tasting room. Their wine selection is bottled by their sister winery, Horse Creek Winery, in South Georgia.
Children are welcome at the vineyard, as long as they are supervised. And you can bring your leashed and well-behaved dogs to frolic around the grounds and sit on the covered patio.
For food selection, they offer meat and cheese charcuterie boards, fresh paninis, and jellies, all locally sourced from local businesses in the area. We tried their delicious paninis with a side of chips.
Every weekend, you can expect live music in the tasting room. The vineyard will also host special events occasionally like yoga classes, game nights, masquerade parties, and more.
Like many wineries, Big Door Vineyards is a beautiful place for a wedding, small or large. They also rent out space for other private events.
Big Door Vineyards offers wine tasting flights for $14, and you don’t need a reservation. You get four 1.5-ounce pours. Flights are broken down by category with different wine flights to choose from.
They recommend doing the wine tasting during the week; they typically won’t do them on the weekend when there’s a big crowd. Since we were there on a weekend, we couldn’t do a tasting. Our bartender did give us a couple samples, though, to help narrow down what to recommend, so it was like a mini-tasting.
