The Rocky Top Wine Trail
The wine trail is located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains and it is comprised of five wineries and a local distillery – Doc Collier Moonshine! The Rocky Top Wine Trail offers over 70 unique wines to try, which makes it a great option for those looking to make a day (or two) of wine tasting! The trail is 100% free to do. You simply start at any of the following wineries/distillery where you can pick up a passport, and then present your passport at each location to receive a stamp. Once you have visited three locations you will receive a free gift, and if you finish the trail and visit all six locations you will receive another free gift! Pro Tip: Don’t plan to do them all in one day, make it a few days of adventure! Stop and enjoy lunch in between and take your time sampling the many different options available at each location.
Free wine tastings is 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 staff eager to help you explore the world of wine! All five wineries are open 7 days a week, and are closed only on Christmas Day.
