Little Vine Vineyards and Winery in Villa Rica, Carroll County, GA is bringing back a tradition of fine wines once produced in Western Georgia in the 1890s. This area of the state at one time was a major vineyard and winery center with some 20,000 acres planted in bunch grapes before prohibition. The grapes at Little Vine Vineyards are the first commercial wine grapes planted in West Central Georgia since 1907 and the winery is the first constructed here in over 100 years. Just as Villa Rica was home to the nation's first gold rush in 1826, Little Vine is striving to reestablish the golden era of winemaking here after a century-long absence.
