What you'll do

We start by meeting under a covered pavilion to get checked in. After we give an informative overview and history of “Appalachia” wine/shine we will begin our tour. We will see working distilleries. You will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and see exactly how their process works. Perfect for ADULT NIGHT out. Great couples/date night.

After a short walk, we start off at an AMAZING distillery where we will taste a custom lineup just for us!

At our next location we will get a true VIP experience at our favorite winery. Just remember...Tennessee does SWEET wines perfect

We will take a short breather and talk history of the old timers. Even during the busiest times of the year this walk is beautiful and scenic.

Once we arrive at our shine spot we get the full "VIP experience". After check-in, they will take you to an exclusive backstage tour of another working distillery (based on operating schedule). What better way to enjoy your tour then with a complimentary moonshine cocktail! Enjoy! It’s on me! If there is no tour, I will show the stills myself and answer questions. Next we will try some of the best moonshines ever made!

I am the founder of "Smoky Tours" which specializes in small group (2-20 people) activities in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area.

My wife/co-host are avid wine and moonshine connoisseurs and have frequented our tasting locations several times weekly before we realized how much fun it is to go with others! Now we are known all around for being the people to call to go tasting with! We have been giving wine moonshine tours for over 5 years now and it is so much fun!

We will educate you on the history of "moonshining" and share some amazing tales from the ancestors of shine.

We focus on an EXPERIENCE not a tour. There is a huge difference. We focus on showing you our town the way we do it. Not a tour company trying to make a tourist buck. The reviews do not lie.....we have amazing relationships at the places we visit.

Where you'll be

We will be visiting a winery and a moonshine/whiskey distillery on this tour and will be learning about each location. Each stop is within walking distance of each other. On the way to each stop we will be talking about the distillery, their founding, what their claims to fame are, and much more about the area.

You are going to be AMAZED at the different types of wines and shines all the way from muscadine to 100 proof shine.
