On Sunday, April 25th, Jail Creek Farms Winery will celebrate with a grand opening featuring live music from Shane Bridges, the Cuban Island Cafe Food Truck, and an amazing variety of Georgia-grown fruit wines!
Jail Creek Farms sits near the site where the Twiggs County jailhouse stood in the 1800s, marking the history with fun labels and inspired wines like Hoosegow Sweet Red Muscadine, Private Eye Pear, and Barking Irons Blueberry wine. The micro-winery rests among 70 acres that have been put to use growing fruit for vinting and playing host to outdoor concerts and events.
Owner Tammy Albert says the family label has already been selling wine at a local farmer’s market, but the grand opening will be a chance for the community to enjoy Jail Creek Farms offerings straight from the source.
“We’re getting really good feedback! Especially the bourbon barrel-aged wines have been a huge hit,” says Albert.
Jail Creek Farm Winery has already enjoyed great success aging wines in barrels from Atlanta’s ASW Distillery and plans to unveil the new Repeat Offender, a bourbon barrel-aged muscadine wine, and the apple brandy barrel-aged Plead the Fifth pear wine as part of the grand opening on April 25th.
The festivities will include wine by the glass or bottle, wine flights, and wine slushies. You must be 21 or older and provide proper ID to enjoy any alcoholic beverages, but the Cuban Island Cafe food truck will be on-site to provide empanadas, nachos, and more refreshments. Live music from Shane Bridges will begin at 4:00pm.
Albert says that regular live music will be a focus as the farm and winery continues to grow.
“We have a small deck and a few patios and all of our overflow will be surrounding the winery,” says Albert. “We just had a lot of the trees cut. So that’s something we’re still working on growing and adding to the outdoor space as we go and get opened.”
Social distancing will be in effect with handwashing and sanitation stations provided for visitors and masks will be encouraged. Coolers are not allowed, but guests can bring lawn chairs or blankets.
