Love and Exile Wines, born in Nashville, Tennessee from the love of wine and the threat of exile.

Time was running out until he was deported to Canada. Tyler Alkins had to start a new business or be forced to leave his home in Nashville. He decided to pursue his dream of making wine. Tyler could see that Tennessee is known for whiskey, but he saw an opportunity to create a wine that was approachable in taste, price and presentation. So he recruited some of the most well-known winemakers in Italy and California to teach him. Wine processes have been perfected over centuries to create a wine that is expertly crafted and perfectly chuggable..

The wine they create together is brought back to Nashville where it is finished and bottled or canned locally in a winery that Tyler and the small team built in an abandoned car garage less than a mile from downtown called Nashville Urban Winery. NUW now serves as the home for L&E and is a high end event space for events, concerts, tastings, and has an on-site Wine Shop that sells the full line of Love and Exile wines.
