Cute area but great wine!

The wine tastings here are great! There is something for every type of wine drinker. The food is excellent as well. There is a cute little Itilian style "town" area and a... read more

The vineyard, building, and its view are beautiful. The service, food, and overall experience was disappointing and not worth the visit. We arrived early for our reservation so got a bottle of wine from the bar, and two of the glasses had little flecks of metal in them from the bottle as the bartender did not remove the foil properly....

We drove up here after visiting the outlets in Dawsonville. The property is beautiful! Had brunch in the restaurant and the food was excellent (mostly local). The cheese platter was wonderful as was the trout. Our server, Charlie, was so friendly and knowledgeable in helping us pair our wine with our food. Thank you! We'll go back again when we... More

I have been to the winery on several occasions and I have to say, I have never really been impressed. The best part of the winery is the atmosphere they provide. The wine is just ok and the food is nothing to rave about. The food is overpriced, even for Sunday brunch without alcohol be prepared to spend 50 dollars... More

Went to the winery on Sunday with another couple. I was surprised how beautiful the winery was especially being so close to us. We did the red wine flight and the mixed flight. Everyone thought the wine was good but the service was so slow. It took about 2 hrs to go through the 5 wines. It was busy but... More

The wine tastings here are great! There is something for every type of wine drinker. The food is excellent as well. There is a cute little Itilian style "town" area and a subdivision as well if you'd like to live there.

Mr. Bill was wonderful. He explained each wine and was attuned to what we liked and made further recommendations. He then took us on a short tour to show us how the wine was made. We ended up buying several bottles of very good wine. The scenery was wonderful as well.

Visited Montaluce with friends from Atlanta on Sunday 11/06. Drove 1 1/2 hours. Wanted to take them to a "hidden gem" in the mountains. Should preface this review by stating that we've visited the winery and restaurant 4 times since the start of summer. We've encountered varying levels of activity (not so busy to bustling) during each visit. On average,... More

The grounds are lovely. The wine is so very good. The food is delicious. We did not have reservations for our Tuesday lunch ... Waited 2 hours. I think they forgot us. But we had a good time

I visited in October 2016 with friends on a Saturday afternoon. We wanted to have lunch but had not made prior reservations so we were turned away. We decided to sit in the wine tasting room and order a charcuterie tray and taste the wine During the 2 hours that we were in the tasting room, very few lunch guests... More

We visited Montaluce last Saturday. It was a beautiful drive to reach the property and the estate is beautiful. A more formal setting than a couple of the other wineries in the area. Bill assisted us at the wine bar and his knowledge of the winery and the wines was excellent. We greatly enjoyed our short time with him. The... More
