My group of seven had six drinkers, we stepped in just to look around and were immediately invited over to a free wine tasting by Stav. Five of us decided to take him up on his offer and I (as a driver and a lightweight) decided I would take a sip from my boyfriend's samples to be safe. The process as I gather it is that you get a list of all the possible wines and you can pick 4 to sample for free, or all of the options for a relatively reasonable price that I no longer remember. Once you've drunk all of your wine samples, you get a condiment cup size shot of their alcoholic slushies. Stav took great care of our group and for the most part we were really enjoying ourselves, so much so that what I think we wanted to be a less than 5 minute look around a shop turned into probably a 20+ minute experience (not so great for our non-drinker friend who went down the street to get ice cream thinking we were right behind him). All the wines were great, Stav was really funny and each couple walked out with a bottle of wine (of which only one made it home at the end of our vacation a few days later, they were that good) having had a great time. I'm only not rating this a 5/5 because Stav was very misogynistic and directed any misogynistic joke or jab towards me. Thought nothing of it, sometimes I'm overly sensitive, tried to let it roll off my back, but when were talking about this experience after the fact, I started talking about some of the things he said to me that some of my group hadn't heard and they were pretty appalled by the behavior so I knew I had not been sensitive. Seriously though, he was super cool to everyone else and we all had a great time otherwise, he just enjoyed picking on me, I guess. 10/10 wine sampling, 100/10 wines, 10/10 experience with Stav for the drinkers in our group, just a 2/10 experience with Stav for me personally so I would still highly, HIGHLY recommend checking this place out.

Monica was an excellent host to us. She explained each wine in depth and made the kids feel comfortable with their non alcoholic cider. This was the only winery in Gatlinberg that had dry options as opposed to the very sweet wines in TN

After a long day of wondering the main drag in Gatlinburg, we decided to was time for some wine tasting. This was a good choice since we just completed an eighteen hole round of mini golf with a two year old. Did I mention it was so hot even satin was looking for some AC. Anyway the Little Beat Winery has two of their three tasting tables open and due to Covid (F that guy) their was probably a longer line than their would have normally been. When we got to the table the wine was good and our pourer Broderick was amazing. Little Bear does have a couple dry wines which apparently is a rare commodity in Tennessee. Our pourer was funny and gave good descriptions of all the wine and it’s history. Overall even with Covid restrictions in place, I would recommend Little Bear to anyone who enjoys wine that happens to be in the Gatlinburg area.

You can get free samples of four wines BUT I highly recommend spending $5 to sample 15 wines. That includes two wine freezes and a special treat! Cody the bartender was so friendly and personable, we enjoyed chatting with him. We ended up buying a couple things and can't wait to have them back at home!

The best wine tasting I’ve ever experienced. Broderick was fantastic! What a fun experience. I loved everything I tasted. You get to taste 4 wines for free or pay $5 to taste everything which was about 11-12 wines I believe. My favorite is the Raccoon Red, which was hard to pick just one because they were all so amazing. They also have 2 wine slushies. Definitely recommend.

Brodric, our host and guide through all the wine tasting was very knowledgeable and funny during our time there. He was able to manage a fairly large group while making each feel important. The wine was great! My husband is not a big fan of wine, mostly preferring craft beer; however he even enjoy most of them! We were so torn on our favorite that we bought 3!

We did a free wine tasting with Broderic. He did a great job of telling us what flavors and experiences with each wine. Also tips on how to bring other flavors out. He had some good jokes though. Great experience.

What a great surprise! We were on a Girl's trip and initially had no intention whatsoever of stopping in Gatlinburg, we had all been before and the crowds are just horrendous in the summer. One wrong turn (laughing and not paying attention to our GPS) and we ended up in traffic in the last place we wanted to visit. We decided to make the most of it and just happened to spot Little Bear Winery. We had a blast and hit the server jackpot with Cody! He was the best, personality plus! We just loved him! The tastings are free for four wines, but you can pay$5.00 and taste them all including the wine slushes they have on tap for they day. Long story short, we ended up with two cases of delicious wine and lots of laughs and memories! Definitely worth a visit. And thank you Cody for such a great experience!
Hugs from your Alabama Gulf Coast Gals!
