Beechwood Inn Named to Top Five Food and Wine Destinations by Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Clayton, Georgia – January 2012: Known for luxury lodging, an exceptional wine list, cooking classes and fine dining that features locally sourced foods, Beechwood Inn, located in Clayton, Georgia, has been placed in the Top 5 Wine and Food Destinations in the United States by the influential Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine is the world’s largest circulation periodical devoted exclusively to wine accessories, storage, information, education, events and travel, and is a driving force in the marketplace. In their December 28, 2011 online edition Wine Enthusiast explored a wide variety of learning vacations to find the best places for travelers to hone their culinary skills while indulging in fine wine. Beechwood Inn was selected as one of the USA’s top five bed and breakfast inns for places to plan your next wine and food-focused escape.

David and Gayle Darugh, Chefs and Owners of Clayton’s Beechwood Inn state that their commitment to excellence is the Beechwood Inn’s number one goal, and they are thrilled with the Magazines designation as a top five destination as a best food and wine destination.  “It’s an honor to be recognized by Wine Enthusiast” says David Darugh. “We pride ourselves in creating an excellent culinary and wine experience for our guests.”

Gayle considers the award to be not only an accolade for Beechwood Inn but it is also a significant recognition for culinary tourism in our region as a whole.  “I believe the mark of a great culinary and wine program is not only to have good food, fine wine, and impeccable service, but also to promote local products as much as possible. Therefore, we feature many locally grown, organic and sustainable items in our meals and culinary classes and we offer locally produced wines. Considering the abundance of knowledge and enthusiasm, it is encouraging and reassuring to see that many of us here in the Rabun County culinary community are being recognized for our passion and commitment.”
