Montaluce Winery & Restaurant, Dahlonega, GA

Montaluce Winery & Restaurant Restaurant Review:

North Georgia’s wineries are developing their own mark, growing not only classic grapes but also hybrids. At Montaluce Winery, Italian — specifically Tuscan — influences framed the architectural language, so the buildings’ stone walls and hipped roofs evoke a land devoted to wine and food. From the dining room’s vast windows, patrons savor a view of vineyards that roll across the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Winemaker Tristen Vanhoff, from Sydney, Australia, makes Montaluce’s wine using both estate-grown and California-sourced grapes. These are the only wines served at the restaurant. Mains might range from shrimp bisque pasta to deconstructed shepherd’s pie to pan-seared duck with stone black cherry gastrique. If the pound cake with lemon curd is offered for dessert, jump on it.
