  • This winery has quite a bit more sweet and semi-sweet wines that the other winerys in the wine trail. Their wines are not bad, my favorite is the blueberry pomegranate freezer bag.  more »
  • We had a great time at the Mountain Valley Winery. We prefer a sweet wine and we tried all of them. The atmosphere is friendly. Rachel was great. We bought 12 bottles of wine so that should speak for ...  more »

  • A weekend getaway to the mountains and we wanted to do something different so I found the Rocky Top Wine Trail. Our first stop was Hillside Winery. We were so impressed and loved Kevin. He was honestly the nicest guy every and informative about the wines and the whole process. He gave us a tour and we loved it!!!!!!! We have continued on to all the other stops and this is OuR FAVORITE. Thank you Kevin!!! Because of your customer service and amazing wines we will be ordering year round!!!!
  • Mountain Valley wine is my absolute favorite wine! We take trips from KY just to purchase. Also used the shipping method. Great experience!
  • Wish I could give this place 10 stars, mainly because of the excellent host "Red" (the only redhead). She was AMAZING! Sampled several wines, and she even gave my daughter some fruit juice and cheese. We will be coming back for sure.
  • This is the place that hooked my wife and I on wine. They kindly explained the areas wine trail and we started incorporating it into ALL of our visits to the Smokeys. You can easily visit them all if you plan it into your vacation. This is usually the fourth stop for us on the wine trail. We are members of the wine club so we get to try all the wines on the list. We also make our own wine and like to find a flavor that we like to try and duplicate. For this reason ALL wineries will get a minimum of 4 stars from me. They have dry, semi sweet, sweet, and a frozen mix to choose from. I think they can only let you have 6 samples per person so choose your samples based on your pallet preference. The blackberry is my favorite. It is tart and full of flavor. Don't forget to stamp your trail card and don't leave it on the counter. On to Sugar land winery in Gatlinburg to finish your trail card. There is an Old Mill Winery maybe a mile down the main strip from Mountain Valley if you would like to try there wine.
  • This is a place where their wine trumps their employees. I haven't had a horrible experience here but it has differed. I think that it has to do with their tasting stations having 3 sides and 1 to 2 employees manning wine station so its not totally personable but they do try and its understandable. They offer tours of their facility if you ask, there's just not much to see when its off season, but its still nice. Their wines are also nice. If you're there in the winter ask for their Winterfest wine. Or really always ask about their seasonal wines that aren't listed. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Word to the wise though, their wines will definitely be sweeter. So if you're a dry wine person, this may not be the best place for you...
