Amber Falls Winery - Hampshire, TN
Judy and Tim purchased the Lewis County property in 2003 with the intention of building and opening a Christian retreat center. As things worked out the retreat center did not happen and a beautiful vineyard and winery developed. The first vines, Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc were planted in 2005. For the next 3 years, several thousand more vines were planted as the vineyard expanded.
The winery tasting room opened in March of 2008 and the community has never been the same. Travelers and wine lovers from every state and many international countries have discovered Hampshire and Amber Falls Winery & Cellars. Award-winning wines, live music, fundraising events, food trucks, television specials, magazine articles, and more have brought attention to this wonderful community and the people and families living and working here.
In 2019, Amber Falls Winery Tasting Room - Nashville was opened. The outstanding Satellite Room and Wine Bar introduced the wonders of Amber Falls Winery to a much larger audience. It has been wonderful to see how, over the years, our community has grown and thousands across the world have been able to experience and enjoy the specialness of Amber Falls Winery & Cellars and join our community of family and friends.
Beans Creek Winery - Manchester, TN
Beans Creek Winery began as a dream no larger than a grape. Tom made his first wine in 1976 in a pickle crock in his mother's kitchen with childhood friends Joe and Dan Lasater. Tom has spent 30 years perfecting our award-winning wine style using grapes and fruit that grow well in Tennessee.
In 2003 with the help and support of other winegrowing families, our dream became reality. Our member vineyards are located in Coffee, Warren, and Williamson counties of middle Tennessee. We purchase grapes from growers in Sumner, Robertson, Sequatchie, Loudon, and Sullivan counties of Tennessee. Beans Creek Winery is pleased to offer a wide selection of Tennessee wines.

Natchez Hills Vineyard - Hampshire, TN
Owners Jim and Karen Odom, having grown up in coastal Mississippi and California respectively, have brought together their histories and passions to establish Natchez Hills Winery and Vineyard--a small, family owned and operated boutique winery nestled in the hills of Middle Tennessee wine country. Having cultivated a love of both wine and travel during their 20+ years with the US Air Force and corporate sector, Jim and Karen were inspired to create a unique and local experience combining their passions of old-world style wine, music, and bringing people together.
At its core, Natchez Hills was born from a vision to create a first-class, local destination where people from all over the world can enjoy the best of what Middle Tennessee has to offer and leave with new memories and lasting stories. Now, with two locations, the Natchez Hills family continues to elevate the local Tennessee wine experience--bringing together the staples of southern culture, original music, and European, old-world charm.
At Natchez Hills, the art of winemaking is so much more than the process of converting grapes into wine. Rather, it is a passion and expression of the "Bud to Bottle" cycle of life. We utilize Old-World techniques with innovative fermentation and processing that combine the precision of winemaking with a creative artistic expression.
How we grow is just as important as what we grow. To us, the concept of terroir is fundamental to the creation of great wine. Terroir is the environmental conditions, especially the soil and climate, in which the grapes are grown--giving wine its unique flavor and aroma. Using organic and sustainable techniques, we are committed to minimizing the use of chemicals and insecticides while maximizing organic nutrients and micronutrients.
Great wine is made in the vineyard, and at Natchez Hills we strive to find the best fruit, whether we are cultivating and harvesting grapes from our own vineyard or sourcing the berry from some of the world's best vineyards in Oregon and California.
Pickers Creek Winery - Lewisburg, TN
In December of 2009, Phil and Lydia Butler George decided it was time to go home. With aspirations of turning their love for great wine into the reality of a vineyard and winery for all to enjoy, what better place to make this happen than the heart of Middle Tennessee where the wine industry was beginning to make great strides in producing quality and award-winning wines. So they came home to the place where they both were raised – Lewisburg, Tennessee.
Back in the spring of 1950, Phil’s parents, Macklin and Elinor George bought a 90-acre farm on South Berlin Road outside of Lewisburg. These gently rolling hills with two meandering creeks, woodlots of oak, hickory, and cedar trees, and some pasture and cropland were a fine place to raise a family. The most unique feature of this farm was the old abandoned railroad bed running east to west across the property. Some sixty years later, that farm which had once been tended for corn, tobacco, and hay would now serve as the home of Pickers Creek Winery.
Their vision for Pickers Creek was to combine elements of things that make life more enjoyable – great music, art, and wine. They purchased the remaining acreage from Phil’s parents (who still make their home on the south end of the original property) and built a venue for tasting delicious wines while showcasing Lydia’s mosaics and paintings along with paintings by Phil’s sister, Janet White, and other local artists. Phil’s brother David created the stained glass that is the centerpiece of the tasting room. A visit to Pickers Creek will provide the opportunity to listen to plenty of great live music while sampling wines produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, Muscadine, and other grapes that flourish in the Tennessee climate. With names like “Harmony” (a Chambourcin and Cabernet Sauvignon blend), “Tennessee Twang” (made from southern Muscadine grapes ) and Blackberry Blues (a sweet berry wine), a tasting at Pickers Creek is like having the old Charlie Daniels Volunteer Jam in your mouth (without the taste of reefer, whiskers, Leon Russell, or fiddle bow rosin.)
