Blue Goose Farm, Vineyards and Winery
Blue Goose Farm and Vineyards is a family-run winery in Maryville, Tennessee in the valley of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Backstory and Context
The award-winning winery grows muscadine grapes, which are
sweet and hardy. The winery also hosts weddings and other small-scale events.
Mark Griffith started the winery when health issues forced him out of his job as security director at a nearby hospital. The first vineyard was planted in 2005 and the first harvest was in 2007-08. State legislation in 2012 allowed his dream of having a winery to become a reality.
