Fainting Goat Vineyards

Fainting Goat Vineyards

People always ask us how we came up with the name. Like goats, we happily tend to a mountainous land. In fact, it has been a nickname that we have given each other throughout the years. We put the word "fainting" in front of it because fainting goats are fun and whimsical- and that is how we think wine tasting should be. So the name "goat" represents us as owners, and the word "fainting" represents the experience that we want to project to our guests. And that is how we came up with our name! Do we have goats? Nope! We have award winning wines, a view that only God could create, and a deep love for our business. We welcome you to visit us and would be honored to have you as our guest! ? Our boutique vineyard is nestled up against the southeast side of Burnt Mountain in picturesque Pickens County, Georgia.
