When Karl Boegner told friends he was going to North Georgia to open a winery, they were a bit skeptical.
After all, Karl was a national leader in the hospitality industry with impressive credentials. He helped open Orlando’s Disney World, opened and managed Atlanta’s 1,000-acre, luxury Chateau Élan resort, and successfully managed five hotels.
Today, Karl’s friends are skeptics no longer. Karl Boegner is Proprietor and Winemaker Emeritus of Wolf Mountain Vineyards and Winery near Dahlonega, Ga., a producer of award-winning wines and one of the South’s premier wedding venues.
