Sumner Crest Winery

Sumner Crest Winery In the summer of 1997 two brothers opened Sumner Crest Winery. They located it only miles from where they grew up and named it after the county that they loved. Their passion for the people and the soil of northern Tennessee gave the firm foundation on which they built a dream. Starting with only a few wines, grown on estate vineyards, the word soon spread of its distinctive character and demand grew. The diversity of the clientele demanded a larger tasting list ranging from the wonderful desert wines and floral expressions of native fruit, to the classical varietals of Europe and California. The wines were placed into national and international competitions, winning numerous awards. In 2000, they collected 19 medals and the respect of oenophiles everywhere. The winery started holding outdoor concerts in 2000. The evening air was filled with the sound of jazz, and the laughter of friends.
