Bootleggers Homemade Wines are made in the Smokies with natural ingredients to ensure the finest tasting wines in the Appalachians. Two sisters were reminiscing on Grandma’s porch and sipping country wine from the bottle. They wanted to carry on the heritage of local wine making and began making wine from family recipes using the best fruits and old time, small batch recipes perfected by kinfolk and neighbors. So they began making wine by hand in Gatlinburg where their families have worked and lived for generations and today there are many varieties of their wines.
There are eleven varieties of Bootleggers Homemade Wines. They offer fruit-flavored wines, dessert wines and even a Holiday Red and Holiday White Dessert wine. The flavors include:
- Homegrown Blackberry, Strawberry and Peach flavors
- Bootleggers White and Red Table Wines
- Redneck Reserve Dessert Wine
- Homegrown Muscadine Blush
- Bootleggers Mountain Muscat
- Homegrown Scuppernog
