Limoges Cellars began in 2018 after a few years of intensive wine study and making wine in our spare time . After half a dozen trips to Europe within that time to hone our regional wine knowledge, we broke ground on the vineyard at Limoges Cellars in the Spring of 2021. The vineyard is situated among 37 acres of rolling hills in the North Georgia mountains, just adjacent to the Dahlonega Plateau: Georgia’s first designated viticulture appellation or American Viticultural Area (AVA). After planting the initial 2 acres of vines, we began construction of the tasting room and production facility: our “Atelier Limoges” in January of 2022. That same Spring we planted our next 2.5 acres of vines. The grapes we have planted between our two planting blocks are as follows: The Avondale Estate block (2021), Vidal Blanc, Albariño, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Teroldego, Tannat, Nebbiolo. The Atlas Estate block (2022), Chambourcin, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Grüner Veltliner.
