It’s nearly impossible to find a winery near Nashville that doesn’t come with a stunning view—from romantic mansions in the rural, rolling hills to rooftop bars that overlook the city. The scenery is gorgeous any time of year, but it’s especially picturesque on a crisp, Autumn day. Grab that special someone or a group of friends and check out these amazing wineries around Nashville.
Arrington Vineyards | 6211 Patton Road, Arrington
Try a grape straight from the vine and enjoy a picnic with a few bottles of wine at this hillside winery. There isn’t an on-site restaurant, but there is plenty of grass to spread out a blanket, and they even offer a picnic sampler served in disposable glasses. Inside the bar, they offer pours paired with chocolate or crackers. The atmosphere is quieter on weekdays than on the weekends, when they host a free concert series “Music in the Vines.”
Belle Meade Winery | 5025 Harding Pike, Nashville
This historic mansion sits on the expansive Belle Meade Plantation, which is also a thoroughbred racing and breeding farm. You can book a private or group tasting any day of the week here—even Sunday. Their menu ranges from dry reds to traditional southern sweets. While you’re there, enjoy a guided tour of the mansion.
City Winery | 609 Lafayette Street, Nashville
Located in self-proclaimed “urban wine country,” City Winery is a great way to experience different bottles of vino just a short cab ride from your Nashville apartment. Their wine list includes more than 400 varieties from all over the world, as well as house wines made fresh on site. Think you have the skills to be a vintner?
