This week I chose to feature one of my favorite local wines. I haven’t reviewed Currahee Winery yet, but we have enjoyed going there for years. The 3 Mile White from Currahee Vineyards & Winery is by far one of my favorite semi-sweet white wines. This wine comes from Toccoa, Georgia, near Currahee Mountain. The back label reads:
“From the prehistoric Mound Builders, to the Cherokee, to the 506th Airborne Infantry Regiment running ‘3 miles up, 3 miles down’, Currahee Mountain has witnessed it all. Now ol’ Currahee watches over the sun-kissed Georgia Muscadines growing at its feet. We invite you to taste our wine, gaze at the mountain and become a part of the Currahee story”
3 Mile White has an extremely aromatic nose of muscadine, a locally grown grape. Slightly more dry than most muscadine wines, this taste is light and refreshing. It tastes like you’re eating muscadines right off the vine! It’s fresh, fruity, and slightly sweet.
If you’re aren’t from or around Georgia, you can order this wine online at Currahee Vineyards-3 Mile White. It’s only $15! Such a great deal for a little taste of the South. Until next time, Happy Sipping!
