Nestled on a hill just outside Humboldt, Crown Winery offers a beautiful and scenic landscape of outstretched vineyards where a variety of grapes are grown to produce 11 different wines. The only solar powered winery east of California, Crown Winery is innovative in both design and functionality, and has built the wine production and storage center into the hill to alleviate any issues that may arise from hot Tennessee summers.
This deal includes a wine tasting, where you and a guest will sample award-winning whites and reds including the *Cayuga White*, a semi-dry, citrusy-toned wine; the full-bodied, yet slightly peppery *Charmourcin*; and the *Chardonel*, a cousin to Chardonnay and featuring all the same buttery, toasty flavors with hints of melon and honeysuckle.
A tour of the grounds will offer teachable moments on proper grape procedures and wine production, and you will eventually exit with two etched glasses, two Crown Winery T-Shirts and a wealth of wine-making knowledge to stun your friends, family and frenemies.

Crown Winery Amphitheater
Centuries ago, the early settlers in West Tennessee cultivated vines on the land and the sun provided the natural goodness of the grape.
Today, on a hill outside the town of Humboldt in Gibson County, our vineyards stretch to the south and west and create a stunning backdrop to the Tuscan-style villa. The winery is a unique combination of necessity, science, and renewable energy. The wine production and storage area is built into the hill, which provides natural cooling through the fierce heat of the Tennessee summers. A large solar system generates power to this building and the connecting villa, which provides a majestic haven for weddings and private parties as well as the traditional tasting room and retail area. The rustic, beamed Queen's Pavilion next to the villa and patio can be used for a wedding or as a backup for an outdoor wedding should inclement weather prevail. It can easily accommodate 150 guests, has a vineyard view, and a fireplace.
We welcome you to enjoy a tour of the vineyard and winery. Stay awhile, savor our wines, browse the gift shop and be sure to visit Eric Botbyl’s pottery studio and gallery located in the heart of the vineyard.
