The Rocky Top Wine Trail
Is located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains and is comprised of five wineries and also a local distillery – Doc Collier Moonshine! With over 70 unique wines to try, the Rocky Top Wine Trail is a great option for those looking to make a day (or two) of wine tasting! You simply start at any of the following wineries/distilleries, pick up a passport, and then get a stamp at each location: Mountain Valley Winery, Apple Barn Winery, Hillside Winery, Sugarland Cellars Winery, Doc Collier Moonshine, or Eagle Springs Winery. Not is the trail 100% free to do, at your third stop you also get entered into a drawing for a return vacation package valued at $500 – (3) day, (2) night hotel stay plus $100 in local food cards and then receive (1) wine glass and (1) shot glass once you complete the trail. Pro Tip: Don’t plan to do them all in one day, make it a few day adventure! Stop and enjoy lunch in between and take your time sampling the many different wines available.
Free wine tastings are offered at every location and free tours of the wine cellars and tank rooms are given from 12-5pm at Mountain Valley Winery, Sugarland Cellars, and Hillside Winery.
Each separately owned winery has its own unique style and feel, but every one of them has friendly faces to help you understand the world of wine! All five wineries are open 7 days a week, and are closed only on Christmas Day.
