Have you explored the Rocky Top Wine Trail? The trail is made up of 5 wineries located from Sevierville through Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg – with a moonshine distillery thrown in for good measure at the Gatlinburg end. All locations along the trail are open 7 days a week, and each winery offers free samples. As a bonus, some also offer tours of the cellars and tank rooms in the afternoons.
You can pick and choose which wineries to visit and when, it doesn’t all have to be on the same day. You can pick up a passport at your first stop (or download it in advance from the Wine Trail website) to get stamped at each stop in the trail. This enters you into a drawing with prizes, and also nets you a gift wine glass at the 3rd stop, and a shot glass if you complete the trail.
