The Georgia I know is very warm and humid in the summer months, so I asked about that the first time I chatted with Frogtown winemaker/owner Craig Kritzer.
, and other good Georgia wineries, are situated in the western part of the state, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains.
The climate is warm but dry, and the evenings are not the oppresive nights I remember from trips to Atlanta in my youth.
Because of the absence, or sparcity, of viticultural history in Georgia, Frogtown
may benefit somewhat from low expectations.
also has a free hand to explore eclectic grape varieties and blends, for no one really knows what to expect from Georgia wine.
