A large selection of sweet to very sweet wines. Cotton candy (grapes) is the one they advertise. Three free tastings per person. It was a fun time. We bought a bottle of blueberry wine (made from 100% blueberries, no grapes).

That cotton candy wine is no joke. That free tasting was absolutely fantastic! Aaron was super knowledgeable and really made the experience. They have a really good deal where if you buy 3 bottles or more you get 10% off. I think there was anothee if you bought 5 or more but i was distracted by the amazing selection.

Jay was our server. He was professional and friendly. You can try 3 for free or taste them all for $5.00. We tasted them all.

They were very sweet, besides the Mountain Laurel. We liked them but they didn’t really taste wine wine to us. They tasted like cheap juice and we felt they were very over priced for the quality.

We went there right from Smokey Mountain Winery though, so that could be why. We thought extremely highly of their wine, so it most likely had our expectations higher for quality and pallet.

We purchased the Pumpkin Pie so we can make a warm mulled wine with it but we wouldn’t return on our next vacation.

Steve was a great host and it was obvious he loves working with the wines, and he genuinely loves the wines. We thought we were going into for a taste of the cotton candy wine (which was DELICIOUS) and ended up leaving with bottles of three different wines. All the wines we tasted were wonderful!

Out of all of the wineries we've been to in the past couple of days Steve was the only one who told me early Happy Birthday! He was very observant and friendly. Steve made a believer out of me as I've not liked Cotton Candy wine before. I bought a bottle of that and Birthday cake to take home.

We stopped here just to try the cotton candy wine. We really liked it and bought a bottle plus bought spiced apple. We sipped a glass each night of the cotton candy wine. After drinking one glass we realized that it wasn’t the type of wine we could drink a lot of at one sitting, it was nice to enjoy a glass while sitting in the hot tub after a long day. The spiced apple we are bringing home and going to try it the recommended way. Which is putting it in a pot and putting spices like cinnamon and nutmeg in it and drinking it warm. It will great on a cold night this winter. This place draws a large crowd all eager to try the cotton candy wine. The gentleman that helped us was extremely nice and knowledgeable about his wine. Glad we got to support a local business.

Steve was our bartender, he knew so much about all of the wines and how they were made. He evn got my husband to buy 2 bottles and he doesn't like wine but he liked these. Steve was funny and charming and just an all around nice guy! I would buy from him again! There were 5 ofnus all together and we all did the 5 bottles get the 6th for a penny.

Recently did the Gatlinburg tasting with Lori. You get to sample four wines for free. My wife and I are not wine connoisseurs but like the fruity tastes of these wines. Next time in Gatlinburg, give them a try.

A fun and friendly staff greet you as you walk in! They are very helpful and are willing to help you find what you want. As I am a dry fan, they steered me to one of their newest wines, just released 2 weeks ago, the Mountain Laurel. It was so amazing, I wanted to get a case!! I got two bottles, and am looking forward to drinking them:) I also got another new release, the rosé, which was great! I got a bottle of that too! Can’t wait to share them with my family! Definitely worth the trip if you enjoy wine!

Jen (Jennifer) at the main location was awesome! It was slow up here when we came, and she made sure we felt welcomed and cared for! She was amazing and chatted with us. We are local, so we come up just to kill some time. She is definitely an asset and made us enjoy our time here!
