Thank you Mr. Larry Lykins for taking Gilmer yet deeper into the realm of substance abuse.
Thank you 2 of 3 of our Commissioners for caving in to Mr. Lykins and his grandiose ego.
This is a guy who's primary interest is providing booze for Gilmer's citizens for his own profit and then putting them on the roads. Is this really the county's choice for the for the head swimming coach of the Gilmer summer swim team? If so, then Gilmer is closer to becoming the north GA version of Atlanta then any of you might possibly realize.
The first traffic related injury or death coming from a wine tasting party will be on the hands of the 2commissioners who voted for this and on Mr. Lykin's hands.
The sad part is that neither of them cares.
Welcome to the new Gilmer!
The only part of this post I agree with is that Larry Lykins has a grandiose ego. He does love himself.

Sweet lord who cares? It's time to catch up with the rest of the world. The country is on the verge of making marijuana legal and we're sitting here getting apoplectic over wine tastings in Ellijay.

if you get drunk at a wine tasting your doing something wrong. You people are so wrapped up in the whole drinking is bad thing and meanwhile half the town is strung out on meth. WTF?

WRONG! The whole country is NOT on the verge of legalizing marijuana, only a few states are doing that and most of them for medical purposes only except for California.

Furthermore, while meth is still a huge problem in Gilmer and many other locals across the USA, meth use in Gilmer has dropped thanks to the efforts of law enforcement, churches and many concerned individuals but needs to drop even further.

While your statement about wine tastings is semi-legitimate the rest is pure nonsense and diminishes the ONLY valid point you made. Get a grip. WTF is wrong with you?

The first time a person gets a DUI after leaving a wine tasting and someone gets injured or worse, the person hosting the wine tasting will find themselves on the wrong end of a lawsuit and any signed disclaimer won't be worth the paper it's printed on.

I agree with you. Time to move on. Drinking is like anything else. Moderation is key. Too much of anything is bad and we already know this.

Maybe pot should be leagel. It would probably cut the mindless bitching in this county in half and people could focus on real issue like the economy in Gilmer Co.

I think the discussion spiraled down into name calling. Everyone has different opinions and different perspectives. However, most adults are able to share their own views without all the drama and name calling I see here. Personally, I don't drink because I don't care for the taste of most alcoholic beverages. I have tasted a few wines that I thought I might enjoy--and I found these at various wine tasting events in different places including California, Virginia and Georgia. Some were at vineyards, some in private homes. As mentioned by others, moderation is the key. I rarely drink wine, but when I do, it is with a meal or other food and always a limited amount. It is a nice way to socialize and meet new people.
As for bringing the church into this discussion, if you remember the Bible makes many references to wine being served at celebrations and Jesus both serving and partaking of it. It seems rather hypocritical for Christians to present a blanket condemenation of the production or drinking of wine--what about communion? I'd think a community would welcome the chance to increase the base of tourism dollars when presented by an apparently productive member of your community. I guess I just don't understand the hateful tone of many of these postings. They don't seem to match the information given: someone will be opening a wine tasting room in asssociation with a vineyard.

All of you are missing the entire point about wine tasting. Gilmer County is moving into the next century and we now have people with desires of an upper social attitude that has not been in Gilmer County in the past. There is a new winery with its own vineyard that will be in production of its own wine within the next year. Also there has been some interest by a national winery to build a very large winery in Gilmer County. These wineries bring jobs and tax revenues into our county. Yes they have wine tasting rooms, and some people that go into these tasting rooms spit the wine back into glasses, they are tasting wine not consuming the wine. There are some people that donít spit their wine back into the glass but in no way have I ever seen a person leave a winery or any wine tasting event that is intoxicated. I think what everyone is missing is that you are use to the good old boys in Gilmer County drinking until they canít walk. This wine tasting is a completely different class of people and this is what the Gilmer County Commissioners understood. A perfect example was Croak and Crumb on the square, it had wine tasting bar and also served wine for consumption, and I attended their events many times and also had dinner there many times. It was a dress up place for dinner and entertainment, a place where the good old boys just didnít go, donít miss understand what I am saying, I have many friends in Gilmer County that are good old boys, it is just a different crowd that partakes in wine tasting. In any event we have Georgia State laws that strictly regulate wine tasting establishments and then laws that regulates people that have too much to drink and misbehave. It has been proven that wine was first made over 6, ooo years ago so it has been around awhile. I think wine tasting is good for Gilmer County and in no way does it mean that you are not a good Christian if you drink a glass of wine. Jesus did not drink non-alcoholic wine when he drank wine, it was considered a pasteurizing process for something safe to drink and keep without spoiling.

I'm still laughing at this one! Sounds like something I'd say.

Want to see some wine tasting? Go to El Rey's or Mucho's on the weekend. I'd think that a group of wine tasters vs. a bunch of karaoke drunks is an improvement.

Overdrive said it all, I think you all should chill out.Oh and by the way.. whoms morals are we talking about here? The ones who try to be all morally assertive and say nothing of nothing, or the ones that want to grow an Ellijay to be a more productive tourist atraction. Open up more than "buy old shit"here stores and mabey some feed stores, smoothie places, sit on the deck or porch and just chill places and people will come. YOUR morals are killing this town.

Good information about local vineyards and tourism on "Talk of the Town" telecast last week if you saw it or can get a copy to watch .
