Rocky Top Wine Trail

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, Sugarland Cellars, and Hillside Winery.

We highly recommend starting your wine tasting experience at Eagle Springs Winery, located just off exit 407 in Kodak.  There you can sample their delicious honey wines and pick up a passport before making your way into Pigeon Forge! Mountain Valley Vineyards started producing wine in 1991 and has since come out with many popular choices including Mountain Valley Red and Blackberry Wine. We absolutely love serving our wine to both new and returning customers. Cheers!
