Only visited during the Georgia Wine Hwy and it was one of my last stops, so I don't recall the quality of the wine, but the tasting area and grounds are beautiful.

Norton Wine Review: Frogtown Winery perches scenically atop a high hill looking down on their vineyards and those of Three Sisters Winery. To be honest, we went here only for their good panini sandwiches since our previous impressions of the wine experience three years ago had been a 1 Star, at best. Oh rutabagas, tastings are now $15 for a white flight of five, or red flight of five, or a five combination. With that fee you also get the rudest tasting room attendant we’ve ever encountered and the waived tasting fee with the purchase of three bottles. What a deal!#$@#!%&*)? Quality wines only becomes apparent after passing the $25 a bottle sticker line. The one white we tried was their 2009 Viognier with initial buttery taste (I know that description is supposedly reserved for Chardonnay wines), but the tasted flavors quickly dissipated. Here’s the kicker. We bit the bullet and bought their non-vintage, full bodied, best of the tasting ‘Shotgun’ blend (Tannat, Touriga, Cab Franc, Merlot) to accompany our lunch. We purchased a couple of first impression, astringent Cab Francs crossing our fingers, hoping that extended breathing would cure what ailed these bottles. We added 2008 Norton wines to hold for later comparison to Georgia's Three Sisters, Tiger, Cavender Creek and Crane Creek Winery’s ‘Norton/Cynthiana’ wines. The 5% Petit Verdot addition to Frogtown’s Norton smoothed out the rough corners of this wine we unsuccessfully previously tried. Later at home, we opened the Cab Franc, tasted a small glass, reclosed the bottle and waited until the following day to try again. I can conclude positively saying that my wife is not a Cab Franc fan, but she especially enjoyed this Cab Franc. Here’s to good anticipations when we open Frogtown’s 2008 Norton wines in a couple of years.
