Travis Green Head WinemakerGrowing up in the North Georgia mountains, Travis always had a deep appreciation for the tastes and smells of his home - from wild honeysuckles and muscadines to his grandmother’s cooking. After a few years in Boston and abroad filled with Irish literature, travel, and public radio, Travis returned home in 2011 to open a 7-acre vineyard and winery in the Georgia mountains committed to showcasing the area's unique terroir. As the winery grew, garnering awards from regional and national wine competitions, Travis began consulting as a winemaker for other Georgia wineries. He is deeply involved with the Georgia wine industry, serving as the membership chair of the Winegrower’s Association of Georgia and helping to establish Georgia’s first American Viticultural Area, the Upper Hiwassee Highlands. While always a country boy at heart, Travis fell in love with Atlanta and lives in Kirkwood with his wife and three cats. He loves Cabernet Franc and soccer, though rarely at the same time. When not crafting wines in City Winery’s cellar, Travis is puttering in the garden, tending his beehives, or planning his next trip.
