  • Do you like history, bourbon, and wine??? I highly recommend this if you’re in Nashville. We started with a private bourbon tasting. Laura was a great hostess and provided interesting information. She definitely has a bright future in the adult beverage industry! We concluded our time sit a tour of the mansion and a wine tasting. Anastasia was a great tour guide and well educated on interesting history. If you take a mansion tour, you get a free wine tasting as well. Their tasting room is cute with many great candy/wine options. If you want the full experience, I would plan 2-3 hours of your day. We didn’t get to do a food pairing or try their meats but I hope to on our next trip. Cheers!
  • We loved this attraction. We thought it was so informative. A lot of history and the mansion tour was good. Only thing I would say is they would need to have tours spaced out more. Because sometimes it was hard to hear the tour guide while other tour was upstairs which was little annoying and hard to hear. But overall we love this tour and experience. Definitely buy tickets in advance. Free wine tasting after tour which was cool
