About Kaya Vineyard & Winery
Kaya Vineyard and Winery is a rebirth of Blackstock Vineyards; located in Dahlonega, Georgia. Blackstock was one of the first and largest vineyards in the Dahlonega area. The unfortunate closing of Blackstock Vineyards in late 2012 paved the way for a complete renovation and re-vitalization of the property. Our future is exciting, with plans that include a twenty-two room hotel with restaurant, fifteen craftsman cottages, and an event facility that can seat up to three hundred. This will make Kaya the largest winery resort North of Atlanta.
Kaya’s Winery and Tasting Room are built atop a ridge that is sixteen-hundred feet above elevation and offers the most exquisite panoramic mountain view in North Georgia. The Tasting Room features twelve foot windows, Edison light bulbs, and reclaimed wood, making the combination of Kaya and the Appalachian Mountains a retreat. Enjoy the cool summer breeze on our two-thousand square-foot covered deck with live music and most importantly some wine.
All Kaya wines are made exclusively from estate grown grapes produced from our property. The Werkheiser family believes that wine is made in the vineyard and represents specific growing styles. Our vineyards are planted with classic European, Italian and American varietals. All of our grapes are hand harvested and gently processed in our facility, we call this the art of wine. Our techniques are meticulous; the secret lies in the management of the vineyard. Our Wine Maker, Ariel, shines when turning wonderful fruit into wine. After harvest the wine is taken to our climate controlled Barrel Room where it is given the perfect environment for integration of flavor and aroma between wood and fruit. Our Kaya Team loves to produce hand-crafted complex wines that cater to the serious enthusiast. Our tasting room goal is to provide an educational experience for those with a passion to learn about wine.
We look forward to serving you!
