“A Welcome Addition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

What used to be a grocery store and a general store across the parking lot from each other on the west side of the Parkway just before leaving G'burg and entering the park in Downtown Gatlinburg has been turned into a winery on the left and a general/conveniece store on the right, a vast improvement over the previous businesses at that location.
SCW is one of the five wineries owned by the same people known as the Rocky Top Wine Trail. As with all the wineries, the staff is extremely well trained and knowledgeable not only about their own products but wine in general. They are professional friendly and courteous.
This winery specializes in wines of the muscadine grape, a variety that has taken hold well in Tennessee where altitude replaces latitude for a wine growing climate. Much of the wine made in TN. is muscadine based. Keeping in mind that opinions are like noses, everybody has one, our two favorites here are the Mountain Laurel (southern term for rhodedendrum) a muscadine based wine, and the #1 is the Martha Jane Rose', a semi-sweet red and white muscadine blend.
Like all wineries hereabouts, price per bottle is in the mid-teens with case discounts, and as always tasting is free.

“Great customer service & nice gift shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We had a girl's trip to Gatlinburg and did the Rocky Top Wine Trail. Oh what fun! Sugarland has fabulous wines and a really nice gift shop with really cool jewelry made by a local artist. I purchased one of the necklaces and receive compliments everytime I wear it. Ms Peggy who did our wine tasting was very knowledgeable about their wines and seemed to really enjoy her job. I would also like to give a shout out to Missy the manager for such an awesome run establishment. A must do if you are in Gatlinburg!

“Winery Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

A friend & I visited this winery because I had a special offer through Living Social. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable. Our tour guide was very patient with our many questions. Our wine and cheese server was gracious and knowledgeable about the products. I particularly was impressed with how they are working with local farmers to use local products and support that economy. They are also very ecologically conscious, recycling what materials they can, and returning by-products of the wine-making process to their producers for incorporation into compost. Oh, and the wines were good, too!
