Description

from Moonshine 'N Wine
This tour is a history lesson, a sightseeing tour, and a wine 'n shine tasting tour wrapped up in one convenient package.

Known locally as White Lightning, we will give you more than a taste of the one-of-a-kind drink known as moonshine—we will give you a history lesson here in the Tennessee mountains including what part moonshine and Eastern Tennessee played during the time of prohibition. Plus, some of our most famous local moonshinin' residents will be discussed.

These fine brew masters have flavors ranging from the hard hitting traditional corn mash or rye to the amazing and sweet flavors such as apple pie and strawberry shortcake. Although we can't visit every moonshine distillery in a single day, some of the major locations we will visit include Ole Smoky, Smith Creek Moonshine, Sugarlands Moonshine, Tennessee XXX Moonshine, Old Forge Distillery at The Old Mill, Tennessee Legend, and Thunder Road Distilleries.

While some want to try moonshine, others prefer the more relaxed and delicate taste of a quality wine. As most wine aficionados know, the taste can change based on where the grapes are from. Here in the mountains of East Tennessee, we have rich soil and produce some of the sweetest grapes. Our flavors are unique to us and our part of the world. You will get to see inside the wine cellar and taste some of the magnificent quality wines bottled right here in Sevier County Tennessee. We cannot visit every winery in a single trip, but we may visit locations such as Hillside Winery, Sugarlands Cellars, Mill Bridge Winery, Apple Barn Winery, and Mountain Valley Winery.

Tour departure time and return time are approximate. This tour leaves from The Gatlinburg Welcome Center @ 1011 Banner Rd Gatlinburg, TN 37738. Look for the white tour bus.
