The certified instructors at Creek Bend Stables have groomed world-champion horses and riders. With their expert guidance, beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders can polish their technique and avoid common blunders such as mounting the horse by climbing up its face. Lessons progress in length and depth of instruction as students age and develop skills.
Since its founding in 1983 in the foothills of Lookout Mountain, Georgia Winery has produced more than 20 fruit-forward small-batch wines. All of them begin life on the winery's 15 acres of vineyards as five varieties of muscadine vines bedded in organic fertilizer. At harvest time, these organic grapes are transferred to a facility where a blend of old-fashioned and new techniques slowly conjures each wine into being. Here, the juices are fermented for up to nine months at low temperatures?a process that preserves the fruit flavors?and then bottled by hand. Guests can get an up-close look at this unique process during winery tours or sample the end product at guided tastings by the sleek, modern bar. Meanwhile, a gift shop stocks each style of wine alongside gourmet foods and chocolates.
Over the course of Winners Circle’s 12 years of entertaining those young and old, families have raced around go-kart tracks, practiced putts on mini-golf greens, and zapped each other with lasers. They’ve also been able to race against each other, the clock, and Christopher Lloyd in running shorts in the Time Freak obstacle race, and more recently, have been able to perfect their swings in indoor and outdoor batting cages. For birthday parties, families can take advantage of a party room, arcade tokens, and pizza from Papa John’s.
