Nine Lakes Wine Festival

The annual Nine Lakes Wine Festival will highlight the award-winning wines of East Tennessee. The Nine Lakes region of East Tennessee is home to nine TVA-made lakes, offering thousands of acres of clear waters and nature preserves, and a growing number of sun-drenched vineyards on our gently rolling hills. The Nine Lakes region is a wonderful place to grow grapes, and the wine and grape industry—already the fastest growing segment of Tennessee agriculture – is on the edge of unprecedented growth.
