Sad day for Georgia winery - On auction block

Vineyard, restaurant, scenic property for sale outside of Dahlonega
 Ever thought you might want to own property in a vineyard for $2,000, a two story Italian restaurant and the property its on for $42,000, a Tuscan-style villa or river front property for around $10,000? Or an entire winery and development for a mere $672,800.26?

These are the going prices for property being auctioned off at the Lumpkin County Courthouse Oct. for unpaid taxes for two years. 

The property and restaurant are part of Montaluce, probably North Georgia's most dazzling winery, a development on rolling hills that includes estate homes and lots, condo-like Tuscan homes and, of course, Le Vigne restaurant, winner of a number of culinary awards and one of the more romantic spots found in Dahlonega and beyond. 

Montaluce is an exquisite place. Just driving thru the property will make you fall in love with the winery. In fact, the development was one of the first areas we visited when we began our home search in Dahlonega and beyond over three years ago. (We thought..."How wonderful...a house and a vineyard.) We were quite impressed with the vision and concept, but turned off by the exorbinant pricing for even the smallest villa. 

Details of the auction are outlined in this week's Dahlonega Nugget newspaper

Beautiful homes in Montaluce
