Winery opens in Tattnall County

Posted: Updated:
GLENNVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

The owners of a century-old farm in Tattnall County are trying their hand at a new crop for South Georgia, wine. Charles and Deborah Tillman officially opened Watermelon Creek in the Tison community of Tattnall County.

The couple moved back to Charles' family farm and planted three acres of muscadine grapes five years ago. They've also built a large building that includes their processing center, a tasting area and gift shop.

The Tillmans believe wine making could grow in South Georgia as it already has in North Georgia.
