tennessee wineriesVineyard tending dates back to the 1800's, but after a slow start (and a serious setback during the Prohibition years), Tennessee wines have seen a booming renaissance in the last 30 years.

Most recently, the industry has been awarded gold, silver and bronze regional and international awards for excellence.

Today, there are some 20 wineries operating in Tennessee, (like the Countryside Vineyards in Blountville, Tennessee, tended by Goose the winery dog, above) but don't get the wrong impression. Tennessee winemakers are getting ripe and ready to compete with world class producers ranging from Napa Valley to Burgundy.

Although wineries are found scattered throughout the state, most are located in the eastern part of Tennessee, as wine tourism booms along popular "wine roads" such as the Natchez Trace wine trail, the Pigeon Forge area's Rocky Top wine trail, as well as wine trails in the Upper Cumberland region.
