WINERIES - Taste the fruit of our vineyards. From Tennessee's fertile, rolling hills, winemakers have mastered the ancient art of growing grapes. The result is wine-making at its best. Don't be surprised by the variety and quality of Tennessee's wines, from sparkling champagnes to deep red merlots. For champagnes & white wines, tour and taste at Bean's Creek Winery in Mancheter, TN. If red is your weakness, head to Picker's Creek Winery in Lewisburg. Stop by Grinder's Switch Winery in Centerville for the relaxed country atmosphere. At Natchez Trace Winery in Hampshire, where you'll find dry, sweet, red and white wines. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon of wine tasting in the beautiful mountaintop setting of Amber Falls Winery and Keg Springs Winery both in the hills of Hampshire, TN where you'll find traditional reds abd whites as well as sweet fruit wines. If looking for sweet or even homemade honey visit Lexington Vineyard in Lynnville, TN.
DISTILLERIES - Tennessee's distilleries are as much a part of our rich history as natural beauty, great music and can-do attitude, with distilleries dating back to the 1800s. Since then, new distilleries have been popping up all over the state. Tennessee is ointernationally famous for sippin' whiskeys from Jack Daniel and George Dickel. Did you know we have a well-known rum distillery as well? Take a tour of Prichard's Distillery in Kelso, where fine whiskey and flavored rums are made. New to Lynnville, TennSouth Distillery try their hand-made small batches with unique flavors.
We invite you to follow the South Centeal Tennessee Wine & Spirits Trail. You are certain to find a Tennessee wine or whiskey to suit every taste. Throughout the year our wineries have special music and events scheduled.
