Watertown Tennessee has parted with their prohibition era liquor laws to host a wine festival near their downtown square and has invited us to celebrate on our vintage train! Thanks to the TN Central Railway Museum we will be aboard a restored and air conditioned 1950’s steel streamliner train.
We get a head start on ticketing which starts Tuesday April 11th at 10am. THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT! Festival tickets to attendees not riding the train go on sale April 16th.
Our train attendees also get exclusive access to the wine festival grounds for two (2) hours BEFORE they allow the public in. You’ll enjoy tastings from eight (8) Tennessee wineries hosted by the Upper Cumberland Wine Trail organization. The Upper Cumberland Wine Trail organization will provide the festival activities which include great jazz, cool art, and delicious food vendors.
Participating Upper Cumberland Wineries:
DelMonaco Winery · Stonehaus Winery
Highland Manor Winery · Holly Ridge Winery
Red Barn Winery · Northfield Vineyards
Cellar 53 Winery · Chestnut Hill Winery
We’re going to continue the party with our own live bands on the train ride home. You are welcome to bring your wine purchases on the train for enjoyment! Passengers will have the opportunity to purchase wine and lunch at the wine festival and each ticket includes a souvenir wine glass! Vintage dress is encouraged but not required. Just have fun with it.
Seats are reserved and will be assigned by order of purchase. Passengers will be allowed to move around the train, but if you would like your group to sit together please purchase your tickets together.
