Lovely winery next to a pretty stream. Lots of comfortable sitting areas in a variety of settings. Live music. Decent wines to sample. What’s not to enjoy?

Absolutely loved relaxing by the river with my husband while having lunch from the food truck and enjoying the wine! The atmosphere is just wonderful being able to sit in the shade while watching & listening to the river gently flowing by with a nice glass of wine! I personally like that the location is both family and pet friendly as well. IMO there was a good selection of wines and just about anyone should be able to find something to match their taste. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because IMO it would be nice to have an on-site restaurant and a guided tour of the vineyards & winery. Other than that, this is definitely one of my favorites and I highly recommend!!
What a fantastic experience! Great wine by the flight, glass or bottle. Fine snacks offered, with an excellent food truck available during limited days/hours. Live music was fun, and the creek that runs through the property is so relaxing. A must stop in the Smokies! Cheers!
