Fainting Goat Vineyards and Winery

201 Vineyard Way

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. Fainting Goat is a family owned Vineyard and Winery created by a passion for great wine and a love for the earth.

Fainting Goat's exquisite vineyard offers handcrafted wines grown from the finest certified French vines. Our wine list boasts a range of full bodied reds, crisp, fruity whites and sweet blends.

Take a glass of wine and enjoy the scenic mountain-view from our 50 foot Veranda. Or stay inside and enjoy the spacious 30 foot ceilings permeated with live music. Floor to ceiling windows allow all guests to appreciate the panoramic views regardless if seated in the Loft or tasting at the bar. Indoor and outdoor fireplaces make tasting at Fainting Goat perfect regardless of season.

Join us in the tasting room to sample our wines and talk to our staff.-

Come for the wine, stay for the view. We look forward to enjoying a glass with you soon!

We have been frequenting Fainting Goat for the last few years and absolutely LOVE it there. The family who owns and runs this amazing vineyard is lovely and the environment is charming. It is a beautiful place to enjoy great wine and scenery. You can do a tasting of several wonderful whites and/or reds or order a nice bottle to share with your friends on the patio. The Carlos and 1812 are excellent wines to try. There are wonderful cheese plates and other goodies to purchase. We just moved out of state and will miss being able to visit this great establishment!

We were on our way to Helen GA and saw this place, were drawn to it because of the name! Came on a Monday afternoon, it was very peaceful, there were probably 4 other couples there while we were there. They have a nice seating area inside as well as outside on a 2nd level deck. They do have 2 fainting goats, as well as their own small vineyard. We did the wine tasting (4 one oz samples for $10) and each got a glass of wine to drink while we sat on the deck overlooking the beautiful mountain scenery. A sign said they have events coming up, we will be looking into those in the future!

We went on a Saturday and brought a picnic lunch and the weather was nice enough that we ate out side over looking the Vineyard with an outstanding view of the mountains. Good wine, congenial and knowledgeable staff. They make you feel comfortable regardless your wine knowledge. They offer wine tasting as well. Go you will enjoy it. Other offering, music food etc but too much to get into here . Check their website directions and offerings.

Very nice place, owner was very friendly. Kids loved it there and enjoyed the chocolate cake. I wouldn't hesitate to bring children.

Beautiful view from the modest sized balcony and plenty of room below as well as inside for the busy days. Several reds and whites to choose from along with a couple of sweets. Convenient access via a short drive to Jasper. Vineyard itself is small and note that wines are not bottled on site yet, but are locally.
