Overview

Sip and savor your way through five wineries in the Smoky Mountains. Your special passport gains you access to five great wineries: each with its own unique activities and snacks.

The Rocky Top Wine Trail is located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains and is comprised of five wineries, offering over 60 unique varities of wine to sample for free! Visitors pick up a Rocky Top Wine Trail Passport at their first stop, have it stamped at each location, and then receive a free logo wine glass at the third stop and a free t-shirt for completing the trail. 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, Mill Bridge Winery, and Hillside Winery.


Our Wineries

Hillside Winery. Partnering with local grape farmers, Hillside Winery is responsible for crushing over 856,000 pounds of TN grapes to be made into wine annually! Come sample the excellence of our Italian style and Bubbly wines. Our educational and family friendly tours are a great way to learn about the winemaking process! Wine tastings are always free and other Tennessee products are often available for sampling.Be sure to ask about our Sweetwater Valley Cheese selection.


Apple Barn Winery. Located on the banks of the Little Pigeon River in the Apple Barn Village, the Apple Barn Winery is next door to the world-famous Apple Barn General Store & Cider Mill, two great restaurants, a bakery, a candy store, an ice cream shop, and a Christmas shop. The Apple Barn Winery offers a unique twist on wine.Our wine is hand crafted in small lots on the farm to provide each customer the best possible wine from local fruit.Open daily for tasting and sales, our family oriented staff would love for you to stop by.Even if you are not a wine connoisseur, you will still take pleasure in browsing our gift shop full of unique items as well as wine accessories.Our video tour is a wonderful educational experience that provides the opportunity to learn more about the winemaker’s art.


Apple Barn Cider House. The Apple Barn Cider House now offers – for the very first time – hard ciders crafted on-site for free sample and purchase. Unlike many other hard ciders in the market, we take special care to retain as much of the fresh apple cider taste as possible – utilizing a sterile filtration method rather than a full pasteurization process. This allows the cider to retain its clean, smooth, and crisp aspects rather than the general “cooked apple” flavor you sometimes get from other makers.


Mountain Valley Winery. Mountain Valley Winery started producing wine in 1991 and has since come out with many popular award-winning varieties.With a focus on making French and German style wines along with a great selection of sweet- fruit wines we strive to continually provide excellent choices for our visitors! Located just past the Titanic Museum attraction in Pigeon Forge, Mountain Valley is in the heart of the Smoky Mountain vacation area.Visit us today and see us bottle wine or crush grapes during the months of September – October. Samples are FREE along with tours of the winemaking area!


Mill Bridge Hard Cider Company: Formerly Mill Bridge Winery, this addition to the Rocky Top Wine Trail transitioned into a hard cider company for 2024. Sit back and relax on the outdoor patio that overlooks the beautiful Little Pigeon River. Using 80% of locally grown fruit, we create a variety of hard cider flavors. Popular flavors include a traditional hard cider called Farmhouse Cider, Apple Blueberry, and Apple Pomegranate. When visiting Mill Bridge Hard Cider Company you will notice the atmosphere is very laid back and urban like. Whether you are looking for some wine for your vacation, to take home with you, or as a gift, we are the stop for you. Come on in and sample local Tennessee hard cider.
