Open 7 Days A Week
In the works since 1976 and finally available to the public! The Apple Barn Cider House now offers – for the very first time – hard ciders crafted on-site for free sample and purchase. Unlike many other hard ciders in the market, we take special care to retain as much of the fresh apple cider taste as possible – utilizing a sterile filtration method rather than a full pasteurization process. This allows the cider to retain its clean, smooth, and crisp aspects rather than the general “cooked apple” flavor you sometimes get from other makers.

location & directions
Tastings are FREE to all those over 21 years of age with valid photo ID.
Unfortunately, if you forget your ID and are over 21 (+) years of age we will not be able to serve you. State law requires that a customer present a valid photo ID prior to sampling or purchasing alcohol in the state of TN.
Of course! Anyone is welcome to visit with us and also tour our winery. We welcome families and friends of all ages – you simply must be 21 (+) years of age and present a valid photo ID to sample or purchase our products.
Our wines contain no gluten – however the yeast we use to ferment them comes from a source that does contain gluten so we cannot make the official claim that they are gluten free. All of our wines are vegan friendly!
Our locations are now pet-friendly! We can’t wait to meet your four-legged friend!
At this time we do not accept reservations but it’s always nice to know you are planning to join us! Feel free to call ahead if you are concerned about how busy we will be but we ensure you that you’ll get up to a bar – even during peak season. Wait time typically never exceeds 15 minutes.
Experience the Rocky Top Wine Trail at your own pace by going on a self-guided tour to our wineries and hard cider house – and get free gifts just for participating!
- Pick any winery you want to start – no need to make any reservations or call ahead, just come on in!
- Head to the bar for a free wine tasting
- After your tasting, you will be given a Passport by your server.
- At every winery you visit, present your Passport to your server. They’ll add a stamp next to their respective location.
- After you get 3 stamps, you will receive a free gift – and if you collect stamps from all 5 locations, you will get ANOTHER free gift.
BONUS: If you tag us on social media using #RTWT in any pictures you take at our wineries, you will be automatically entered to win various prizes, such as tickets to our VIP Wine Tour!
No! Just hold onto your passport and jump back in any time you’d like – be it days, months, or even years!
The wineries are all located within 5 miles of each other, most along Parkway in Sevierville and Pigeon Forge. We definitely recommend driving, although you could walk it if you’re feeling particularly adventurous!
You can only get the free gifts once a day, however, nothing is stopping you from revisiting a winery you love multiple times in one day.
All of our wineries will have Passports readily available for you, however, you are welcome to print one off prior to visiting. To get a free passport emailed to you click on the "Get a Free Itinerary & Passport" button on the leftside of this website.
Yes! The wineries are open to all ages, though we will only serve those 21+ and we ask everyone for an ID.
