Nestled in the foothills of The Great Smoky Mountains in the area known as “the peaceful side of the Smokies”, Townsend, TN serves as the perfect setting for truly inspired wine making. We chose the name Cades Cove Cellars because we are not only passionate about the award winning wines we create, but because we are also very passionate about the beautiful area in which we work, live, and play.
Townsend is on “the peaceful side” of the Great Smoky Mountains and is the gateway to Cades Cove. The Cove is a quiet, beautiful valley in the mountains loaded with history and bountiful wildlife. Rustic buildings, dating back to the 1800s, are preserved by the National Park System and offer a step back in time for visitors.
Cades Cove Cellars was chosen for the name of the winery as a connection to the past and our commitment to operate in harmony with nature, thus preserving this beautiful land for the future.
With a combined winemaking experience of 80 years, we constantly strive to capture the rustic elegance that surrounds us in every drop of wine we make. Whether it is in the grace of a white tailed deer or the majesty of a bald eagle, we find inspiration all around us for a process that is as much art at it is science.
