A 2005 visit to an apple winery in Southern Illinois sparked Brandon’s interest in wine. He then spent several years visiting wineries all over the country as he pursued a management career in the aviation industry. He dreamed of one day having his own apple winery in a barn located somewhere in Wisconsin. Brandon ventured to Newnan, Georgia in 2015 to begin a professional flying career. He discovered a small family-owned winery and began volunteering while learning the craft. In 2018 Brandon moved to Hogansville, GA, and formed Twin Mills Winery in 2019. The winery was licensed and began production in 2021.
When you visit the Tasting Room, look for the cork-filled glass canister. It holds corks from Brandon’s favorite wineries, some of which no longer exist.
Jerry grew up in Goodes, GA. He has spent most of his life just outside Turin, GA where he and his wife, Kay, raised their two children, Melissa and Spencer. He was a Navy SeaBee during Vietnam, and spent 37 years working at Bell South before retiring to work on vintage cars. He is currently building a 1929 Model A Huckster. Sometimes you can find his pride and Joy, a 1957 Chevy parked in front of the tasting room.
Jerry was dragged into winemaking in 2020 when blueberries needed pressimg. He now helps during all stages of production and bottling. His favorite job is running the bottle filler.
