In the last few decades, Tennessee has become rather popular for its whiskey and "Moonshine". It is also slowly emerging as a place for wine as well. This is not the first time in history that Tennessee has tried their hands at being a successful hotspot for wine drinkers. In the late 1800's, they made wine that won gold medals in a number of tasting competitions. The success did not last very long thanks to the prohibition in 1909.
Today, Tennessee is home to more than 25 different wineries. Each are producing wine that has won national as well as international tasting awards.
