Join us for a fun drive to a local winery Frogtown Creek Vineyard and Winery ( https://frogtown.com/ ). It is about 20 minutes drive time north of Dahlonega. They have a standard Saturday “cafe” there and, for our group, will provide a separate area on their patio (or a room inside if the weather requires it), platters of their panini sandwiches, salad, and chips for $18.75 plus service charge & tax… $25 total per person. We can order additional items off the menu (tea, soda, wine, snacks, etc.). If you want to participate in a wine tasting after lunch, they will provide a room and a dedicated tasting leader/bartender. ($25 for the tasting) For those who might want to explore other local wineries, there are two others within a mile of Frogtown.
Our route takes us by AMP in Dawsonville. AMP is hosting an “Extreme Experience” exotic car event that day and they welcome us as spectators. It will make a good “leg stretch” break on our route.
There’s a few route options back to the Atlanta area: the ‘express” route and the more “interesting” route, which we’ll share at the event. Plus, some people might want to stop and look around Dahlonega for a while.
