Each weekend for the month of June, uncork, sit back and relax.

For the 11th year, the Georgia Wine Country Festival offers a sampling of Georgia wine, great food and local music for visitors from across the region.

The event will take place June 2-3, 9-10, 16-17, 23-24, and June 30. Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery, Lily Creek Lodge and members of the Georgia Wine Council have combined efforts to bring the festival to Dahlonega once again.

All the action, or relax-tion if you will, happens at Three Sisters Vineyards, 439 Vineyard Way in Dahlonega.

And the best part? General admission is free. For the second year, hosts are saying a special “thank you” for the support they’ve received.

But if you want something a little extra, a “Georgia Wine Garden” will be offered to visitors for $20 and includes a keepsake wine glass.

Wines from across the entire state of Georgia will be featured with participating wineries expected to include Boutier Winery, Danielsville; Chateau Elan, Braselton; Georgia Winery, Ringgold; Horse Creek Winery, Nashville; Crimson ‘N Scarlett’s Vineyards, Dawsonville; and Three Sisters Vineyards, Chestatee, Walasiyi Wine Company, and Fat Boy wines from Dahlonega.

Food will play a major role during the weekend, with barbecue to be on hand every day of the festival, as well as offerings by local chefs and restaurants.

The unique musical entertainment during the festival will include the Route 66 Band on June 2 and 3; the Buzzard Mountain Boys on June 3 and 17; BlueBilly Grit on June 9; Moose & Squirrel on June 10, 16 and 24; the Mossy Creek Gypsies on June 23; and the Possum Brothers on June 30.

The festival will be presented rain or shine under vineyard tents. Festival hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.
