About Little Bear Winery
Little Bear Winery is the newest addition to the collection in Gatlinburg, with a location in the heart of downtown. The people behind this new winery desired to create a "vibrant, fun, and delicious" atmosphere, and they have certainly succeeded in this endeavor.
Exploring the Wine Trail
When visiting a winery, the first question should always be, "Is there a tour?" The second question is, "Can I sample for free?" Fortunately, we have the answers to these questions and more. For starters, there is a tour available to taste four different wines for free.
However, if you don't want to pick just four flavors, you can try them all for a fee. To help make the tour more fun, make sure to pick up their passport. Once you've gotten stamps from all locations, you'll qualify for a gift! Even better, no reservations are necessary, even if you're bringing a group.
