Belle Meade Plantation was the premier breeding farm for American Thoroughbreds in the South for over a century. The Harding and Jackson families hosted US Presidents, fabled American frontiersman, and our nation’s foremost business tycoons. They were renown for their hospitality and celebrated as architects of the American racehorse. Today Belle Meade welcomes guests from all over the world, carrying on the family tradition as a monument to Southern culture and a steward of the lessons of history.
The Belle Meade Winery was founded in 2009 as a non-profit fundraiser for the continuing preservation of the site. We honor the legacy of winemaking in the American South with traditional Muscadine and Blackberry wines, as well as produce a full library of red, white, and sparkling wines inspired by Europe’s rich winemaking culture.
