Gatlinburg Wine Fest Showcases Tennessee Wineries

It’s a wine weekend in Gatlinburg! The Gatlinburg Smoky Mountain Wine Fest is happening April 8.

If you’re looking for something to do while visiting White Oak Lodge and Resort, look no further. The Gatlinburg Wine Fest brings wines from all over Tennessee along with small plates from some of the Smoky Mountain’s best restaurants for your sampling pleasure.

The event is put on by our friends at the Gatlinburg Convention and Visitors Bureau and will be held at the lovely Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts on Saturday April 8 from 1 – 6 p.m.

The event will feature 18+ wineries from across Tennessee, who will provide samples of their wines along with food provided by area restaurants.
