Situated in the beautiful historic district of Pigeon Forge, Mill Bridge Winery is the place to go when you want to treat yourself to delicious wine, hard cider, and cheese galore. Since it sits back from the other shops, along the banks of the Little Pigeon River, you might find their location a little bit hard to find. But it’s well worth the search to get there.

Their winery is cozy and inviting with many long tables to sit at plus room at the bar. Although they have plenty of indoor seating, the patio is the place to be pretty much year-round. With its amazing view of the riverside and the Great Smoky Mountains behind, it sets the stage for an amazing wine tasting experience. The servers are also poised to ensure you have an amazing time at each and every visit.

Upon arrival, they offer a free wine tasting to every visitor, giving you a chance to sample four different wines of your choosing. Included in the tasting is a hard cider of your choice and a sample of frozen wine. You can also elect to pay for the premium experience in their tasting room if you prefer.

Either way, throughout the tasting, the servers will tell each selection’s story, helping bring out the complex flavors. You can then order whatever wine or hard cider you like by the chilled glass or bottle. You can also buy bottles to take home or give as gifts.

Their most popular products include:

A dry wine through and through, the Millstone is light and crisp, providing the perfect bite with every sip. The lack of sugary sweetness highlights the complex tropical fruit flavors and provides a truly clean finish.

Indian Summer
Mildly sweet and tart blueberry takes center stage in their Indian Summer wine, which is limited in availability. If you are lucky enough to catch it in stock, the blueberry flavors will tantalize your taste buds, and then finish off with a hint of lemon.

Mountain Falls
In their sweet wine section of the menu, Mountain Falls awaits your discovery. Built upon a luscious base of Concord grapes, this delightful selection will bring you the amazing flavors of juicy red fruit of all kinds.

Iconic Tonic
Providing the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors, the Iconic Tonic will never let you down. This hard cider starts with the fresh taste of honey, then beautifully finishes with crisp lemon, sip after sip.

Cider House Blues
With its bright, fresh flavors, Cider House Blues is another solid choice on their hard cider menu. In this drink, bright blueberries and sweet apples come together to tantalize your palate and satisfy your craving for something truly amazing.

In addition to their wine and cedar offerings, they have an exceptional assortment of cheese for your enjoyment. Served with crackers, the cheese beautifully complements all their different drinks, providing a phenomenal tasting experience to remember.
