  • Newby Tasting Room

    Newby Tasting Room
    Rome, Georgia

    The first Blanc du Bois grapevines were planted on the family farm in March 2015, and the vineyard opened its tasting room in downtown Rome, Georgia, in April 2021. The tasting room is open Wednesday through Sunday, showcasing five to ten of their seasonal wines at any given time, along with good music and hospitality. 10Best Wine Expert Ava Roxanne Stritt adds, “Some tasting rooms only give you a small amount of knowledge with the wines. Many times you will be tasting with a member of the Newby family and gather knowledge about every aspect of the growing process and how the wine came to your table.”
