THE OGLETHORPE CUP for the best Georgia grown wine in the state (2013 Petit Manseng) and the award for the best vinifera - fine dry wine - in Georgia! (See Events page for details and the Press page for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution review by Gil Kulers.)
LATE NEWS: Tiger Mountain's 2014 Petit Manseng promises to be a top award winner like the 2013! Last month, it was a Jefferson Cup Nominee (a double gold winner) in the Jefferson Cup Invitational, a contest to which only wineries that have won acclaim in their region or nationally are invited. Tiger Mountain 2011 Touriga Nacional won a silver in the prestigious contest!
