What You'll Get
A house says a lot about its owner, as evidenced by Galileo’s solar-system bed sheets and Lincoln’s vast collection of presidential action figures. Take a rare peek at history with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a plantation tour and wine tasting for two at the historic Belle Meade Plantation (up to a $32 value).
Situated atop lush green farmland just six miles west of Nashville, the historic Belle Meade mansion and winery harvests Tennessee grapes to bottle and pour muscadine and blackberry vintages for its illustrious visitors. Saunter like a southern belle through the charming and authentically restored rooms as a classically dressed guide regales you with the romantic niceties of Civil War family scandals. Complete the anachronistic excursion with a tour of the tasting room and a sip of one of the locally crafted potables, which are also available for purchase by the bottle. Though today's Groupon is only good for the tour and wine tasting, Belle Meade also boasts a unique gift shop shilling southern culinary delights, such as honey jam, country hams, and stone-ground baking mixes alongside souvenir items, including shot glasses, thimbles, and subtle, thimble-disguised shot glasses.
State law does not allow charging for wine tastings.
- Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable and much of the house relics were authentic or at least period pieces. – Steve M., Yelp
- I was intrigued to hear the story of the family, the horses, and the rise and fall of this plantation. It is like taking a little step back in time and seeing what things were like… – Zeke A., Yelp

About Belle Meade Plantation
In 1807, John and Susannah Harding purchased two-hundred acres of property on the Richland Creek seven miles west of Nashville, and from a two room cabin that still stands today established “Belle Meade”, or the beautiful meadow. Unlike contemporary farms in the region, Belle Meade was not renowned for the production of cash crops, but for the thoroughbred racehorses that would eventually take the Harding’s and their estate to a national and global level of fame during its 100 years of operation.
After training you to ride a Segway, an experienced historian will guide you around all 30 acres of Belle Meade’s historic grounds. You will explore the vast history of the site, see historic images of the grounds and out buildings, and hear about how Belle Meade operated as a fully working plantation. End the 90 minute Segway tour in the shadow of our Greek Revival style mansion, making sure to get some pictures with the mansion as the backdrop. Once the Segway tour is over, walk over to our winery for a wine tasting.
