Unique & Savory Experiences

When it comes to food experiences, we provide the absolute best. World renowned and beloved by all, Benton’s Smoky Mountain Country Hams offers a selection of meats that can be purchased, but they are best known for their dry-curing ham and bacon. We highly recommend stopping in to purchase some for yourself. You will thank us later. Another wonderful stop, not too far from Benton’s, is Tsali Notch Vineyard. Tsali offers some of the best mountain views paired with award winning wine that you can sample in the tasting room. After your tasting, you can explore the muscadine vineyard, which happens to be the largest one in Tennessee.
