“Fascinating people and good wine”

Tennessee Valley Winery

This was our favorite of the four wineries we visited around the Smoky Mountains, also the oldest winery in the state, and the most awarded - over 900! It is owned and operated by an Italian family that lived in South Africa. Very gracious and entertaining. The muscadine is a regional specialty - sweet but loaded with antioxidants.

If you like sweet wines you have to try their Vidal Blanc. It's wonderful, but so are many of their other wines.

From the outside, this winery looks very plain-almost as if you are driving up to a large shed. But don't let the plain looks deter you! The tasting room is small but cute. The owner has been wine-making for over 29 years, and he knows his stuff! The tastings are free, and the amount is generous. He allowed us to try virtually all the varieties before we chose our purchases. Definitely try to muscadine wine as it is native to the Smoky Mountains. My husband and I prefer dry, non sweet wines in general so the muscadines were a bit much for us. But, we did purchase the semi-sweet red muscadine variety. It's delicious! We will visit this winery again in the future. If you are passing through the area, it's definitely worth a quick stop!

My wife and I stopped off on the way back from our honeymoon and tasted several of Tennessee Valley's semi-sweet and sweet wines. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and many of the wines were very tasty. My favorite was cherry and my wife loved the blackberry.
