TSALI NOTCH VINEYARD AND TASTING ROOM
Named after an historic Cherokee leader, Tsali Notch is located in Monroe County, approximately nine miles off of Interstate 75, in the Tennessee Overhill Heritage Area and on your way to the Cherohala Skyway! The vineyard specializes in muscadine grapes, grown on over 6000 vines on 21 miles of trellis, covering 35 acres of a 202-acre estate. The property has an average elevation of 1150 feet and is ringed by sweeping mountain views.
Featuring a large party barn, a reconstructed log building tasting room, and a recently refurbished 19th-century, two-room farmhouse christened The Jackson Lounge, Tsali Notch Vineyard is host to weddings, reunions, and other special events. During harvest season in September and October, we welcome individuals and families to pick muscadines for their own juice, jelly and winemaking—or just to enjoy our offerings!
The last week in September, in conjunction with the City of Sweetwater, Tennessee, Tsali Notch co-hosts the National Muscadine Festival, as highlighted by Garden & Gun Magazine, celebrating the bounty of this native fruit. “America’s Wild Grape,” muscadines have a unique and robust flavor and are among the foods highest in health-giving antioxidants (resveratrol).
Tsali Notch grows six varieties of muscadines:
- RED (Dark): Nesbit and Noble
- WHITE (Bronze): Carlos, Doreen, Magnolia, Sterling
