Great Wineries in Nashville Worth Trying During Your Visit

While wine might not be as synonymous with Tennessee as, say, whiskey, there are actually around 40 wineries and 150 vineyards in the Volunteer State. A handful of these wineries in Nashville are ideal for a wine flight, tour, or bottles to take home. In fact, before the Civil War, European settlers planted grapes here, banking on a cash crop. However, Prohibition foiled these plans, and it wasn’t until the 1970s that winemakers and farmers took to planting and cultivating vines in Tennessee. 

The historic Belle Meade Winery is one of the best wineries in Nashville and is known as the first. This 32-acre spot, just ten minutes from downtown Nashville is a part of the greater 250-acre Belle Meade Plantation site—where 200 years of history and winemaking come together. You’ll love heading here for a tour, tasting, snacks, and strolling in the vines. 

Before you start filling your itinerary with the incredible wineries in Nashville, you’ll want to secure your lodging, and our Nashville boutique hotel is the perfect place to settle in. Our grand estate offers an array of accommodations, from cozy rooms for two to larger multi-room suites for couples or friends traveling together. We offer bed and breakfast-style amenities at our boutique hotel with a lovely morning meal included with your stay, an excellent on-site Innkeeper, and our spacious shared rooms in the mansion in which you can make yourself at home.
