Frogtown Cellars is a vineyard at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains equal distance between Dahlonega and Cleveland Georgia. Frogtown encompasses 28 acres of vineyards and a tri-level gravity flow winery specifically designed to produce the unique wines made from Frogtown grapes.
In 1998, native Atlantans Craig and Cydney Kritzer founded Frogtown in a location carefully selected for quality wine grape production and outstanding mountain views, the Frogtown District of Lumpkin County, Georgia. After researching Frogtowns soil, diverse climates and terrain, Craig divided the land up into separate vineyards. He planted different wine grape varieties based on the characteristics of each vineyard site. Frogtown is now home to 28 acres of vineyards planted to 15 different wine grapes varieties, both red and white.
Frogtown produces wines under the 'Frogtown' label and the 'Thirteenth Colony' label.
The Kritzer family invites you to come and relax on our deck with a glass of our wine and enjoy the views overlooking our vineyards, lake and the North Georgia Mountains.

Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery is a small family farm situated on a hundred and eighty acres in the heart of the Frogtown District in historic Lumpkin County, Georgia. Located eight miles northeast of the site of the first major US gold rush, Dahlonega, the farm's name was inspired by the property's spectacular view of Lumpkin County's Three Sisters Mountain. While no one knows the origin of the name of Three Sisters Mountain, local residents refer to its three distinctive peaks as Wild Cat, McBrayer, and Rattlesnake. Established in 1996 and bonded in 2000, Three Sisters Vineyards is Lumpkin County's first vineyard since prohibition and holds the distinction of being "Dahlonega's First Family Farm Winery."
Our 25 acre Vineyard estate is home to plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Touriga Nacional. This mountain top estate was selected after an extensive search. We focused on finding the best site in which red wine grapes could be grown, instead of looking at the number of vines we could plant. Wolf Mountain has 5000 vines planted by hand which are divided into small vineyard lots. The property runs due east to west with south facing slopes. This maximizes sun exposure to vines and clusters, producing the ripest fruit possible. Our 1800 foot elevation provides sun soaked days and cool mountain nights, creating the perfect grape growing environment. After all, wine is really made in the vineyard.
The beautiful Winery at Wolf Mountain is fashioned after a raised, Craftsman-Style cottage and sits atop the cellar which is encased in fieldstone and houses a presentation of early wine-making artifacts. The Lodge represents our hospitality facility for private events and special activities. Currently, no overnight accommodations are available.
Views of Mountain beauty
Situated atop a mountain ridge and surrounded by vineyards, The Winery at Wolf Mountain commands a spectacular view of the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
Old world rustic decor
The decor at Wolf Mountain takes you back to the early French wine country. European antiques from the 17th and 18th centuries have been collected and are displayed throughout the winery.
