The land that Cartecay Vineyards rests on was purchased in 2007.
The vineyard was originally a working farm, dating back to circa 1890. The original farm grew corn and hay, grazed cattle, and raised hogs and mules.
When Cartecay Vineyards acquired the farm, it had been inactive for quite some time, and had been taken back by Mother Nature.
The farm that now exists as a vineyard was created by combining the original farm layout with the specific needs of a vineyard.
Cartecay is a Cherokee word, which means “Bread Valley”.

Engelheim Vineyards focuses on growing outstanding grapes to produce the highest quality of wines. Our objective is to give all glory to God while integrating our German heritage and our Appalachian home. We also hope to honor the original residents of Engelheim, the Cherokee Nation. The owners, Gary and Jan Engel and their family, decided to purchase the land that is now known as Engelheim (German for “Angel Home”) in 2007. After Colonel Engel retired from the Army in 2004 and upon his return from Iraq and Kuwait, they decided to live their dream of living in the North Georgia Mountains to grow the finest quality grapes. The Engel family planted their first vines in 2009 and harvested their first vintage in 2011; Engelheim Vineyards has been going strong ever since.
The Ellijay River Vineyards were established in 2010 on almost twenty acres of former crop land, bordering the Ellijay River in the North Georgia mountains. The property is located in the Whitepath area of Gilmer County between the towns of Ellijay and Cherry Log, at an elevation of 1400 feet above sea level. The vineyard is sited on a gently sloping hill facing South, on mostly sandy soils on the inside of a bend in the Ellijay River.
