Belle Meade Plantation scatters abundant greenery and eight historical buildings across 30 acres, inviting guests to explore its storied opulence and swill complimentary sips of Tennessee wine. Knowledgeable tour guides lead visitors through the regal mansion, which flourishes with detailed wall paintings, winding staircases, and ornate chandeliers donned especially for formal dates with neighboring abodes. Steal glimpses of the carriage house and stable, then head to the winery to sample locally culled libations such as the Carriage House White, a semi-dry elixir with notes of apple pie and citrus, or the Racing Silk Red, a favorite of equine sommeliers.

Belle Meade Plantation

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.
