Our Story

Blue Ridge Cellars was established in 2011 with the mission to share the Local Wines, Ciders

 and the Local Beers from

 North Georgia Vineyards and Breweries. 

Before 2011, Blue Ridge and Fannin County, GA was considered  a "Dry County",  meaning wine and beer could not be sold, served, made or 

grown to be made into beer, wine or hard cider.  

After the local community voted to change the ordinances regulating the sale and serving of wine and beer;   Blue Ridge Cellars opened in June 2011 at 500 East Main Street in downtown Blue Ridge.  

Alot has happened since 2011, with a few more wineries and breweries opening in the surrounding counties and communities and we strive to carry and serve the local crafts and wines when available. 

Fannin County is still considered "Dry" and no Alcohol sales are allowed as of today.   

We hope that you will stop into Blue Ridge Cellars soon for a wine or beer tasting and some great local gourmet foods, cheeses and hard ciders.

Enjoyed this quaint place, which has a great selection of craft beers, wines and even flavored olive oils and vinagars. We also had a yummy flatbread on the dog-friendly patio!
