Jim Beam's tour of the facilities was an eye-opening experience in the world of Bourbon distilling from the world's largest producer of Bourbon. The tour even allows you to put your thumbprint in the wax seal of a bottle of Knob Creek single barrel Bourbon...who wouldn't buy that souvenir?

Got this through last minute groupon.
Thought it may just be a time passer but ended up being very relaxing.
We sampled a total of 10 wines really liked the sweeter ones.
Enjoyed setting outside with nice cheese tray and bottle of wine.
It's definitely worth doing and also very affordable. The ladies working were very helpful.

Trail ran red trail this morning. Loved every bit of it. Online reviews had me concerned about trail markings, but they were perfect.
iPhone maps to Horine Reservation, which gets you right to the trail head parking. Jefferson Memorial Forest website has great trail maps that are accurate.
5 miles of pure bliss. Thank you!

This is a small store converted from a machine shop six years ago according to the help. A lot of reviewers noted the preference for what are their sweet wines. Located in Kentucky, they like wine like their sweet tea evidently. They get riesling and other grapes from outside to make some nice dry and semi-dry whites and a good merlot as well. Prices are reasonable. Good find.

We stumbled upon this driving down the road. We were able to take the guided tour and tasting. It was a beautiful facility and everyone was super friendly. Loved the history and taste testing and I ended up buying Bourbon and I don't even drink it! I got lots of great Christmas presents and learning a lot.

Was in town for another function and came across this place. My husband and I are both in our 40s and my father in his 60s and we had the best time. We felt like kids out there. The mile and half track is awesome and i'm ready to make a weekend trip back just to go back.

Reviewed By Gary M - Sevierville, Tennessee

Nothing terrible about this winery but nothing really good either. Okay setting, okay Tasting room, not terrible wine. That is the problem, everything was just okay. Nothing special at all. The samples were good size, but the wine just wasn't anything special. The girl doing our tasting was not very informative or engaging, just asked what we wanted and poured, seemed a little distracted. They were getting ready for a wedding maybe that was it but still not very impressed.

As we entered the beautiful visitor's center at Bernheim Arboretum a gentleman greeted us and inquired if we needed any help organizing our visit. He introduced himself as the great grandson of Isaac Bernheim who donated the land for this beautiful arboretum and told us a bit of the history and highlights to see. The famous landscape architect, Olmsted planned the lovely three small lakes and the very convenient and extensive road through the area, which allows mobility challenged guests to visit areas like the lookout viewing platform. We were amazed by the Holly forest and loved strolling the lakes. Very beautiful and peaceful!
Additional they have a lovely gift shop, clean bathrooms and a delightful café. Highly recommended!

Incredibly overpriced golf for the community it sits in. This is a working community that simply can not afford to play here. Sad, this was a horrible concept from the get go!
