Tasting Room

At Sylvan Valley Lodge and Cellars, we believe experiencing local wines and craft beers should be an adventure for the soul. British Travel Writer Pico Lyer once said. “A traveler is really not someone who crosses ground so much as someone who is always hungry for the next challenge and adventure.” To that, we say, “Welcome traveler, your adventure awaits!”

Frolicking Faerie Wines

If you drink enough wine, you’ll see Faeries…

If you drink a little bit more, they’ll tell you their names. Let us introduce you to the Faeries we have met so far on our wine adventures.

WARNING! Drinking the Faerie Wine may cause an inability to fly, but drastically improves your ability to see Faeries.


Our Current Selection:

Frolicking Faerie Blanche (Dry, White)

A refreshing Georgia made, Texas grown Blanc du Bois. Zesty acidity takes the first punch, remaining brightly balanced and explosive on the palate, with notes of white peach, grapefruit and tropical lychee.

Frolicking Faerie Sapphira (Dry, White) 

100% Georgia grown Pinot Blanc. Tart and ripe in grapefruit and lime, this is an easygoing quaff with buzzy acidity enjoyable on a summer’s day or at a casual gathering. Light, it finishes muted and fast.

Frolicking Faerie Grace (Sweet, White) – Award Winner

*Georgia Trustees Wine Competition for 2016, Silver Award

This delightful blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Vidal Blanc is just sweet enough, but lightly and delicately so. Overall, very balanced, an elegant wisp of a off-dry wine with acidity that lingers through the mid-palate.

Frolicking Faerie Sybil (Dry, Rose) – Award Winner

*Georgia Trustees Wine Competition for 2016 & 2017, Bronze Award

This European style dry Rose is made from Georgia Vidal Blanc and Cynthiana. Light, with fruitful undertones and a crisp dry, lingering finish.

Frolicking Faerie Wylder (Dry, White) – Award Winner

*Georgia Trustees Wine Competition for 2016, Silver Award

Spicy acidity lies beneath the richness of this 100% un-oaked Chardonnay, providing balance, freshness and a lightness on the palate that surprises. Meyer lemon, salty caramel and a feral overtone of forested woods combine effortlessly to intrigue and delight.

Frolicking Faerie Callie (Dry, Red) – SOLD OUT

This 100% varietal and barrel-fermented wine is a remarkable study in power and grace. Black cherry, cigar box and cedar bark flavors and an invitingly sweet sensation of tannin are supported by bright, lingering acidity and supple complexity.
