Wine tasting was really a sip of 4 wines. Don't arrive after 230 on a sunny weekend day or tours will be sold out - had fun there!

Beautiful mansion and grounds. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The only way it could have been better was if the tour guide had not been so rushed. I would have liked a more leisurely visit in order to take in all the exhibits.

We spent a girls' day at the plantation. We had a delicious lunch at the restaurant. The shrimp and grits are awesome. We enjoyed a fun and informative tour of the mansion. We wandered around the grounds as well. The wine tasting was a nice ending. We had a great time! Highly recommended.

From Our Editors

When visitors walk between the 1853 Greek-revival mansion’s six solid-cut stone pillars, onto the portico, and through the heavy wood door, they might tour the rooms or learn to cook in its original kitchen. Originally founded by John Harding in 1807 for thoroughbred-horse breeding, the rolling grounds of Belle Meade Plantation now welcome seasonal tours and events ranging from book signings to art shows. Knowledgeable guides in period costumes lead tour groups through the building’s parlors and bedrooms and down a long central hallway to ascend the three floors via a circular cherry-wood staircase.

As groups wander the mansion and cross the grounds, guides divulge facts about famous visitors, such as President Cleveland and General Ulysses S. Grant, including the fact that they probably got scared of the dark just like normal people. During special tours, the staff demonstrates Southern cooking techniques and walks visitors through an herb garden or serves them lemonade or hot wassail with desserts. In an on-grounds winery, winemakers hold tastings of red and white varietals made from Tennessee grapes. Visitors can also clink wineglasses over Southern-style cuisine at the Harding House restaurant, located on the plantation grounds.
