Like people, our wines are a reflection of where they are grown.

The soil, the climate, and the selection of grapes play an important role in the final outcome of the wine. The French call it “terroir”. We call it “roots”. Where are you from? Where did you grow up? Wines made from the same grape varieties that are grown just a few miles apart can taste subtly or substantially different. They have a flavor unique to their home. Haralson County, GA has a rich history of viticulture and wine making. The glory days were in the late 1800s and early 1900s until Prohibition. Trillium is striving to awaken that almost forgotten tradition. Come taste the delightful sense of place that is evident in our wines.
