Harnessing the Fruit Flavors of the Smoky Mountains

Mountain Valley Winery

It’s no secret that life in the South is sweeter, and wines are no exception. Mountain Valley Winery harnesses the nostalgic flavors of the South’s most coveted fruits and crafts them into award-winning wines. Watermelon, for example, is a summertime favorite. Guests at Mountain Valley Winery can sample the watermelon wine, and then take home a bottle of the sweet vino. This top seller deserves a spot in any wine enthusiast’s cellar. 

In addition to rhubarb, blackberry, peach, and other fruit flavors like muscadine, Mountain Valley Winery offers some surprising flavors too. The Red Velvet wine gives the aroma of a baked confection. With notes of cocoa and vanilla, your palate will convince your mind that you’re drinking a red velvet cupcake! 

While the selection at this Pigeon Forge winery is primarily sweet, those who love dry wine will not be disappointed to try traditional southern wines. It is an experience that anyone can appreciate.
