Description

from Moonshine 'N Wine
This tour is a history lesson, a sightseeing tour, and a wine 'n shine tasting tour wrapped up in one convenient package.

Known locally as White Lightning, we will give you more than a taste of the one-of-a-kind drink known as moonshine—we will give you a history lesson here in the Tennessee mountains including what part moonshine and Eastern Tennessee played during the time of prohibition. Plus, some of our most famous local moonshinin' residents will be discussed.

These fine brewmasters have flavors ranging from the hard-hitting traditional corn mash or rye to the amazing and sweet flavors such as apple pie and strawberry shortcake. Although we can't visit every moonshine distillery in a single day, some of the major locations we will visit include Ole Smoky, Smith Creek Moonshine, Sugarlands Moonshine, Tennessee XXX Moonshine, Old Forge Distillery at The Old Mill, Tennessee Legend, and Thunder Road Distilleries.

While some want to try moonshine, others prefer the more relaxed and delicate taste of a quality wine. As most wine aficionados know, the taste can change based on where the grapes are from. Here in the mountains of East Tennessee, we have rich soil and produce some of the sweetest grapes. Our flavors are unique to us and our part of the world. You will get to see inside the wine cellar and taste some of the magnificent quality wines bottled right here in Sevier County Tennessee. We cannot visit every winery in a single trip, but we may visit locations such as Hillside Winery, Sugarlands Cellars, Mill Bridge Winery, Apple Barn Winery, and Mountain Valley Winery.

Tour departure time and return time are approximate. This tour leaves from Shops of Pigeon Forge parking lot - 135 E Wears Valley Rd. Pigeon Forge, TN 37863.

Pam was our driver and she was great and informative. We did this tour with a total of 7 family members and had a great time. Made friends with the other 2 couple on the tour. I highly recommend this tour to anyone new to moonshine so they can taste the different flavors.

"Disappointed customers"
July, 2018
We were there for our tour on Monday 7/9/18 and were told by the bus driver that we were not able to bring our service animals with us on the tour. That we would have to contact each distillery and winery in the tour to see if we could bring them with us, we had 10 minutes to do this, when we contacted the company we were informed that we were not able to get our money back because we were past the cancellation date, we were planning on doing the tour until that time. On top of it we had just received notice from family that same time that my husbands mother had passed away, they will not even take that into consideration for a refund. All they want to do is give us a gift card to do a tour again when we are in Utah and we are not going to be there for another year or more really, does that sound fair or realistic to anyone. All we are asking for is the company to refund us our money back due to not being able to do the tour due to having to leave to get back home for a funeral and they don’t want to do that. No compassion from this company what so ever

We went on the moonshine tour and our guide was Dustin. They went out of their way to pick us up because we had a large group and even stopped for us to pick up food on the way back. I would recommend this to anyone looking to see the area and getting some drinks along the way. Dustin was great and want to thank him again.

My husband and I did this tour on a trip to Tennessee for our anniversary, and it was amazing! By the third sampling place, the entire tour bus was friends. Our tour guide Pam was equally amazing. Definitely worth every penny. I recommend this tour for anyone who likes to drink, and we will definitely be doing this again when we come back next year.

Reviewed May 30, 2018
This was a great tour. Pam was an awesome guide and it certainly helps when you have a driver for this tour. We visited 7 different tasting locations between winery and moonshine distillery. We have done wine tasting before, but first time doing the moonshine and it was fabulous. You can visit each one of these on your own, but I suggest a tour guide as Pam shared useful information and you also get a discount on your purchases for being on a tour. I rate this tour as A+
