Recently my husband and I decided to have a rare but special day just the two of us….. So we turned off our phones, gave the kids to their grandparents, and headed to the North Georgia Mountains for a mini escape.

We had been told by clients who recently purchased a home of this development called Montaluce. They raved to us about the spectacular views, winery, and restaurant. So we were excited to give it a try. 

Upon arrival, we were shocked to see the vineyards so lush and full of grapes…I had to ask myself if we were in GA or Napa? Of course, GA but the vineyard was really very beautiful. 

Inside the restaurant, the foyer and entrance were stunning.  The entrance to the tasting room complete with all of their wines on the back wall was held in this dark mahogany wine shelving. The ceiling throughout the tasting room had exposed ceiling beams and the dining room was totally open with a fireplace and glass windows overlooking the vineyard.  As real estate professionals, we appreciate all the architectural details such as the fireplace with these mosaic tiles.  The windows were floor to ceiling giving an open view of the vineyard from every table in the dining room – every detail in regards to the atmosphere is so well done.  We walked out to the balcony overlooking the vineyard and this was the most perfect view and ideal place for a glass of wine.

Lunch exceeded our expectations to say the least. The food is all organic and very fresh. Fresh to the point that when we ordered the sausage flat bread our server informed us that the pig just arrived and they had not prepared the sausage yet! Wow. Not your typical answer in an Atlanta Restaurant.  They have short ribs, duck, sandwiches, salads, a variety of choices each day and a very elaborate Sunday brunch. The menu changes regularly. 

I would highly recommend Montaluce if you are looking for a mini escape from Atlanta. It is located just outside of Dahlonega and is a wonderful place for you to visit for a gourmet lunch or dinner.
