Montaluce Winery & Estates in Georgia hired Paul White as winery general manager. The winery is under construction and hosted its first crush in October. A former San Francisco attorney, White gave up law 10 years ago to devote full attention to learning about the California wine industry and managing vineyard projects. The winery includes 9,500 sq. ft. of production facilities and a restaurant. It is located on Hightower Church Road, a 10-minute drive from Dahlonega's historic town square. White was previously general manager at Coturri Winery in Sonoma Valley.
