Dan Dunn is visiting wineries across the country for his new book project, and he's spilling his guts along the way in his long-running Food Republic column The Imbiber. This is the final installment. We know. We're sad, too.

Georgia Wine Is On My Mind

Dan Dunn hops on the midnight train
Dec 4, 2014 4:00 pm

I’m happy to report that I visited a bunch of vineyards in North Georgia, and tasted some surprisingly delicious juice. Anybody who tells you they’ve gone to Georgia expecting to find great locally-produced wine is either lying or out of their mind (a combination, by the way, that has served Georgia politicians well for decades). Here's what I discovered. It's impressive.

Our cocktail columnist takes the ultimate wine trip

I’m on the road researching a book that HarperCollins has graciously offered to publish. The working title is American Wino. If all goes as planned — and, let’s face it, there’s little chance of that happening — what I’ll eventually wind up producing is a tome that is part vision-quest, part guidebook, part journey into the bizarre tapestry of American life. Indeed, it is my sincerest hope that Wino will turn out to be a work of epic importance that will make you laugh, make you cry, and teach you a whole lot about wine.
