Did You Know That Kix Brooks, of The Legendary Country Music Duo Brooks and Dunn, has a Winery?

I love Wineries and am always anxious to try the latest offerings from newer vineyards.  This means Roadtrip!

Arrington Vineyards, which is about 25 minutes south of downtown Nashville, is located  on 75 acres of beautiful Tennessee countryside.  The Vineyard is owned by country music star, Kix Brooks, John Russell and winemaker Kip Summers.

The first vines were planted in 2004 with construction of the winery following in 2006.  The Grand Opening occurred July 1st, 2007.  Today, there are currently 18 different varieties of ultra-premium award winning wines available.  Wine tastings are available inside the beautiful rustic tasting lodge.   My favorite was the Petite Noir 2015 and the Raspberry 2016.

From it’s hilltop setting, the winery includes a gorgeous panoramic view of the Tennessee countryside.  Numerous picnic tables dot the landscape where families and friends are seen enjoying old-fashion picnic lunches and wines from the vineyard.  Live music is featured often and includes Jazz and Bluegrass.

It was a great day at the winery and I can’t wait to return.  Below, is a picture of me next to a gloriously large wine barrel and then a picture of me trying to figure out 1.  How to fit it in my SUV and 2.  How to do this without anyone noticing.  Neither of which were ultimately possible.
