Thunder Road Wine Trail

Thunder Road Wine Trail follows the original Thunder Road, from Knoxville Tennessee to the beautiful Watauga Lake region near the North Carolina border, ending at Copperhead Road.  Discover our award-winning Tennessee wines as you explore all that is in between!

You’ll traverse sections of the route Kentucky moonshiners took from Cumberland Gap to markets in Knoxville and beyond.  Visit all six wineries on The Trail and you will travel on the original Thunder Road and the original Copperhead Road and be deep in the heart of Appalachia. ~courtesy Thunder Road Wine Trail.
