Chateau Meichtry

Chateau Meichtry is a family owned and operated winery and vineyard, located in north Georgia wine country. The vineyard lies in the beautiful foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. The rolling hills provide a perfect location for growing quality wine grapes. We invite you to come out for a tasting or a glass, while enjoying the beautiful scenery, and on weekends, enjoy live music entertainment from a great array of Georgia musicians every Saturday & Sunday from 1:30-5:30.

In 1921, at the age of 25, Stephan Meichtry traveled to America from the canton of Valais, Switzerland with only a suitcase and an adventure for life.  He settled in Maspeth, New York, where he would later raise his two children and further develop his passion for wine.

It is believed that when he came to America, he brought his own root stock from Switzerland and grew the vines he used for his lifelong wine-making. A stock from these same vines is now planted at Chateau Meichtry Vineyard.

Although Stephan has passed, his love for life lives on through his daughter Doris and his appreciation for viticulture and wine in his Granddaughter Karin. Please share in our dream with us, while enjoying a Chateau Meichtry wine, in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains.
