Nutwood Winery is an elegant stroll back in time with a stylish stop in the present. Adorned by 200-year-old pecan trees, an iconic drive leads past the historic Greek Revival manor that defines the grounds. The manor, built in 1833 by the architect Collin Rogers, is said to be his most notable work and has helped to define southern architecture. The manor’s name, Nutwood, is believed to be derived from a legend that the first pecan trees to grace Troup County were planted on the property. To this day, Rogers’ signature medallion bird remains above the manor’s entrance.
Today, Nutwood manor is a private residence which is not open to the public. The Nutwood Winery is owned and operated by Neil and Trish Liechty whose vision is to maintain the historic value of the property while at the same time giving it new life and purpose. Preserving the original farm and home, the winery was built using trees from the property, keeping in line with conservation efforts of this nationally recognized historic site. With 25 years of experience hosting special events, the Liechty’s have a history of combining food and atmosphere with both family and corporate events.
In the spirit of true small business entrepreneurship, Nutwood Winery remains family-owned and operated and offers the only commercial wines bottled in the LaGrange city limits. But it’s more than just wine, it’s an experience. “We’re not trying to see how big we can become. We want quality and we want people to have a good time.” With these ideals in mind, Nutwood is ever-changing and looking to enhance the guest experience with each visit.
Nutwood Winery offers southern charm mixed with natural beauty that serves as a perfect backdrop for small parties, bridal and baby showers, corporate events and intimate family gatherings. Stop by and see us or schedule a private tour today and see for yourself.
