Great place

Great place to sample a good variety of wines. You'll have to pay $5 now for the samples, but you get a voucher for $5 off their merchandise and wines for each person sampling... read more

Had a great time and not really a wine drinker but was impressed. Austin Cline at the island store was awesome. Made us laugh allot and if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have done the wine tasting and bought three bottles. Highly recommended when you visit the island

Went into the store and immediately noticed the guy behind the counter had an "I really don't want to be here" look about him (trust me, it was that obvious). When I mentioned we were interested in trying some of the wines, the employee gave a sigh and went into an uninspiring speech about the $5 per person cost (you... More

They're amazing at answering any question you have and know quite a bit about each the wines they have. It's a smaller location than others, but... More

So my wife and I consider ourselves average wine so as southern wines go, the wines offers are above average but not spectacular. With that said, we did like the scuppernong, blackberry and muscadine enough to buy them. The server was not very knowledgeable about the wines and their origins, which is a part of the tasting experience. Still, it's... More

Another place in Gatlinburg that is a definite "must stop by" place. I love my wine sweeter and this place has the best wine that suites my taste. I wish we lived closer to a place like this! Even my husband who isn't a huge fan of wine loved all the flavors!There isn't one flavor I didn't like. But blackberry... More

Tried a some of the wine. Just the way I like it, Sweet! Blueberry, Raspberry, and Muscadine were very good and hard to chose between. Will have to go back!

My sisters and I visited Bootleggers Homemade Wine for a tasting, and purchase. Austin Cline assisted us that day, 10/29/16, and he was very helpful with recommendations for each of us, based on our preference of wine. The tasting & visit to the store......awesome! Not only did each of us walk out of there with 6-12 bottles of wine each,... More

This is the cutest little place. Very small but they have a great selection of wine and other things like all gift shops (shirts, hoodies, coozies, wine glasses, and what-knots) The wine testing is free and worth your time. The more wine you buy the cheaper they get (discounted by how many 3 or more) Price ranges from $15-$20. They... More

Gatlinburg excels in sweet fruit-infused wines, so if you're looking for wines on the drier side you'll need to look elsewhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting and ended up with strawberry, blackberry, and scuppernong.
