My husband really wanted a day away in the RV over Fathers Day, and with work schedules, etc., being so crazy, a great option for us was to visit a winery thru Harvest Hosts. We have been so pleased with our stays so far, and this time did not disappoint either.
Ellijay is about an hour north of Atlanta, just on the edge of the Blue Ridge mountains. Beautiful country!!
We arrived on Saturday around 1p, the place was really busy as they were preparing to have afternoon live music, but also there was a special event scheduled for that evening called “Jazz and Judges”, which apparently has to do with the American Bar Association. We were allowed to roam about the front grasses to find the best spot we could; this place is on a hill, so it wasn’t the easiest thing in the world, but we managed to find a fairly level spot for the RV.
We didn’t do a tasting, but we did buy several glasses of wine, one bottle to drink while we were listening to the live music (he was exceptional!), and then one bottle to take home. Total cost was $97. They did have small bites for purchase as well as wine slushies, etc.
The “Cabin” is beautiful with many places to sit, inside or out.
The actual Jazz concert was setup “in” the vineyard with a stage, etc., and was $25/person. We did not attend as we had our daughter with us, but we were able to listen to the music from our RV while we enjoyed dinner and played frisbee.
The band stayed in an RV by the main tasting room; and another Sprinter Van stayed mid-yard. The band wrapped up by 9:30-10p and it was a super quiet evening the rest of the night. We awoke to the mooing cows of the milking farm next door.

Just a note, both Verizon and ATT have a spotty reception here.
