Southern Middle Tennessee Winery Tour
Those who are kind to the vine will love the harvest of grapes we grow here in Tennessee. The mountain elevation on one end of the state differs from the Mississippi River's coastal plains, where the swamp land grows. Tennessee is roughly on the same latitude line as southern Italy, making our grapes relatively the same in light exposure. The Cumberland Plateau is known for having great vines and excellent wines. We feature them on this page, along with others you may want to add to your itinerary. The button below takes you to the Tennessee Winery Trail, where you can see over 30 wineries!
Most Amish and Mennonite communities do not allow alcohol for consumption, but certain groups may make spirits for tinctures and medical uses. These wineries are meant to be points of interest along the way.
MNM Winery in Ethridge TN
Unfortunately our Ethridge winery is no longer a winery but is now a pick-your-own berries place when they have wild crops. They showed us how to gather fruit, trim vines, and differentiate between harvesting good and ripe fruits for winemaking. Due to the age of the owners, they have let their vines go, which saddens us. We want to dedicate this page to those at MNM Winery who showed people from all over, the art and joy of winemaking and those who now choose to continue making wines for people to drink and enjoy. Thank You!
Big Creek Winery West

Amber Falls Winery
You are on top of the world at Amber Falls Winery and Cellars in Hampshire, Tennessee! The road is even named Ridgetop, as you are literally on top of a ridge surrounded by the vines that take in the sun as it goes across the sky! The owners bought the property in 2003 and had other plans, but today you can walk the rows of vines and sample the wines in the tasting rooms! You can even stay the night and walk the vineyard in the moonlight at their cottage. It currently rents for $100 a night or $150 for two nights.

Other Great Southern TN Points of Interest
Tennessee is home to some of the best whiskeys, brews, and wines in the country. The Amish are not usually permitted to drink but do make tinctures for medication and can supply fruits to make ingredients to makers. The heritage and methods of these makers are sure to be a place you will want to see.
Tennessee Whiskey is nationally known in Eastern Tennessee as the best when it comes to a stiff drink. Distilleries on the Tennessee Whiskey Tour are sure to help lift your spirits! Most of them have tours and tasting rooms to sample their whiskey!
Nashville Studio Tour
Nashville Tennessee is known as music city and it is the only one of its kind in the country. Why would so many publishing houses and entertainment companies move their headquarters to music row or the newer Berry Hill community if there were other places to go? It is because Nashville Tennessee is the capital when it come to music production. Country is still king here but there are rap, hip hop, heavy metal and other genre studios that are just as well known as their country counterparts. Many of these studios do not have a tour and will not let you in their building so we don't suggest making a scene so we feature the studios that have a tour or other way to see the inside of the studio. We will show other studios just so you can see the building from the outside. Just like when tour bus groups take a bus tour to see the home of the rich and famous!
