local and fresh touch to weekend cuisine, and with expanded hours.
See www.chefdavidsweeney.com for Chef David's background.

Chef Sweeney

Chef David Sweeney formerly owned The Dynamic Dish Restaurant in the historic Sweet Auburn District which attracted the attention of top city food critics for its healthy foods with natural ingredients from multicultural resources. Later, Chef David worked with top chefs at Atlanta's Restaurant Eugene and Decatur's Cakes and Ale. More recently he has been involved in private and corporate catering for clients such as Coca Cola, CNN, Georgia Organics, and many others. He remains devoted to his work with community farmers markets.

Press kudos for Chef David:

"A purity of taste and a zealous reverence for fresh produce." Christiane Lauterbach, Atlanta Magazine & Knife and Fork

"He cooks with the kind of renewed intensity that can only come from having fresh ingredients and knowing how to use them." Meridith Ford Goldman, Atlanta Journal Constitution

"...ingredients obviously had been coddled and coaxed gently into being a paragon of flavor and texture." Besha Rodell, LA Weekly


"This gets 5 stars from me! One of the nicest Rosé in a long time! Summer in Georgia at it's best. Highly recommended!!!"

"Definitely off the beaten path, but well worth it. Drove through here looking for wineries on our way to Atlanta and what a find. The Red Barn restaurant is absolutely adorable, and everyone working there was so warm and friendly. The views are gorgeous, and the wine is delicious. What more could you ask for!"

"As my husband and I pulled up to Tiger Mountain Vineyards, my mind immediately flashed back to where I was the year before- CA wine country. The tasting room has been described as "Napa Sheek". If you have time and the weather is nice, buy a bottle to enjoy at the picnic tables out back overlooking the red barn and vineyards. I will certainly be back again!"

The Red Barn Café, an indoor/outdoor facility open for lunch and dinner on weekends May through November, also hosts weddings and special events from the spring through the fall season. Starting in May, the Red Barn Café also features monthly gourmet dinners and wine pairings with renowned visiting chefs.

Tiger Mountain's Red Barn Café earns a Trip Adviser
recommendation for its strong reviews from guests!

Rave reviews are coming in about Red Barn weddings!
Kerbe wrote a five star review last week on www.weddingwire.com

"We completely stumbled upon Tiger Mountain Vineyards on a mini vacation to North Georgia. When we heard they did weddings, we looked into it. Lisa, the manager, and her staff were so welcoming and sweet! We had a fabulous lunch by their chef and got a tour of the grounds. Since we committed to using their vineyard as our venue, Lisa has done everything she can to be accommodating to our needs and wants. We are planning from Florida, so it is a bit more difficult to plan, but she has definitely helped put us at ease. Whether planning a wedding or just want great wine and food, visit TMV! "

Red Barn
Beautifully refurbished, the 75 year old Red Barn at Tiger Mountain was once a dairy barn where Dr. John Ezzard, current owner and winemaker, milked cows as a boy. With a spectacular view of the vineyards, visitors can enjoy fine cuisine, a glass of 100% Georgia-grown wine, and the warmth and beauty of North Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Lunch and dinner are served with wine pairings in the café and on the patio.

Open May through November for Friday and Saturday night dinners as well as Saturday and Sunday lunch/brunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., The Red Barn Café features live jazz, bluegrass, and folk music. Enjoy fine cuisine and relax with a glass of Tiger Mountain's award winning wines inside the barn or out on the rock patio overlooking the vineyards. From the tasting room to the café, and back again, you can sample all of Tiger Mountain's fine vintages.
