Wine Tasting

Trying different wine blends is a great activity to do with Mom! In Georgia’s Rome, we have two different wine tasting locations to choose from. Newby Farm & Vineyard Tasting Room has multiple different wines for tasting. Plus, all of their grapes are grown locally! For more than just wine, try Olea Olive Oils & Wine! They offer many different house-made olive oils and vinegars to create your own salad dressing and cooking needs. Both locations also offer creative and culinary experiences. Follow their social media for fun classes!
