gatlinburg smoky mountain winefest
Sample wines from Tennessee wineries along with small dish fare from some of the best restaurants in the Smoky Mountains.
The Gatlinburg Smoky Mountain WineFest will be held on the plaza at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies on Saturday April 12th from 1pm - 6pm.
We have 15 wineries secured for the event (they will be coming from all over Tennessee!) Visitors age 21 and older will purchase a ticket to the festival for $20 and receive a wristband for sampling and a branded wine glass. The wineries will provide wine samples of 1 oz at a time to everyone with a wristband.
The participating wineries last year were: Grinder’s Switch Winery, Keg Springs Winery, Beachaven Winery, The Grape Barn at Nolichucky, Spout Spring Estates, Blue Slip Winery, Sumner Crest Winery, Beans Creek Winery, Tennessee Valley Winery, Mountain Valley Winery, Delmonaco Winery, Stonhaus Winery, Amber Falls Winery, Sugarland Cellars, and Eagle Springs Winery.
We will also have delicious appetizer samplings from The Melting Pot, Vista Grill at Park Vista, Ober Gatlinburg and Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.
During the WineFest, there will be talks associated with wine making, wine pairing and more. Tickets are on sale now! A portion of proceeds will benefit the Gatlinburg Hospitality Association Scholarship Fund and Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts.
Tickets will be available soon.
