A historic Southern plantation, just a few miles from Downtown Nashville, known in the past for its significance to the Thoroughbred industry and today for its wine. (We'll drink to that!)

By Kelley Brackett
Belle Meade Plantation, commissioned by John Harding in 1845, is a gorgeous Greek-Revival style mansion with all the bells and whistles! In fact, back in the day, it attracted presidents and U.S. generals alike. Tours of the plantation are led by a costumed guide through the mansion, dairy, horse stable, carriage house, mausoleum, gardens and a log cabin. The sites are spread over a sprawling 30 acres, so there is a lot to take in. Luckily, a wine tasting awaits you at the end of the tour!

The Belle Meade Winery is a nod to a tradition that started on the plantation 200 years ago. Today, proceeds from wine sales help to fund the historical site. After the tour, you'll have the chance to sample four wines ranging from sweet southern varieties like Red Muscadine to traditional Chardonnays and Zinfandels. Bonus, Belle Meade is one of the few places in Tennessee that you can purchase wine on Sunday!

Admission to Belle Meade is $18 for adults; $12 for students, 12–18; $10 for youth, 6–12; and free for children 5 and under.
