When Karen was a little girl, her great aunt would take her on wildflower hikes. They would walk woodlands, pastures, and roadsides in search of wildflowers. Auntee would identify each, and Karen was enthralled. Karen loved discovering the tiny Bluets or Quaker Ladies, the wild ginger that looked like little brown jugs, and seeing the “ruby” in the center of Queen Ann’s Lace. But her favorite of all was the simple but majestic Trillium Grandiflora. Karen loved the symbolism of the Trinity found in the Trillium plant. There are three of everything: three leaves, three sepals, three petals. Bruce and Karen decided to name their vineyard Trillium in honor of the Trinity and as a symbol of their faith. Look closely at the logo, and you will see the trillium in the center of the grape cluster.
With the help of many friends and family, our vineyard is now a reality. The grape varieties that we have planted are Blanc du Bois, Villard Blanc, Lenoir, and Norton–all of which are well suited for the piedmont area of Georgia.
As our vines are maturing, we will be building a tasting room, winery, and fiber studio. The fiber studio will offer products from our alpacas’ beautiful, fine fleeces and classes in the fiber arts. Our tasting room will showcase wine accessories, tea, coffee, local cheeses, and beautiful gift items available for purchase. Special events, music, and dinners in the vineyard will be here soon!
