A desire to keep the family farm...

In 2005, we decided that the family farm needed to stay the family farm and not be developed into a subdivision. As for farming, we wanted to grow something we loved. We love wine and wine grapes. So like the madman cited by Dali, we planted a vineyard. In 2015, we opened our small boutique winery.


In 2005, Scott and Rebecca Paschal had the opportunity to purchase the remaining 100 acres of Scott's family farm.  The Paschals had farmed this portion of land for decades and lived in the Brush Creek community for seven generations.


In 2006, Scott and his father, Tom planted several acres of grapes with plans to become commercial wine grape growers. However with a change in Tennessee's law, it became apparent that eventually the farm needed to develop into a farm winery. With lots of work from their three sons, Scott and Rebecca began to build the infrastructure needed to start a small farm winery.


In 2015, on Easter Saturday, Scott, Rebecca and their family opened Cellar 53 Winery to the public. A majority of the wines produced use Tennessee grown fruit. The winery currently has five acres of vineyards with more acreages being replanted with blackberries, blueberries, pears and new grape varieties.


In April, the winery plans to begin booking small, private seated tastings paired with cheese/chocolates.

The winery does not rent out event space for weddings or any other private event or party.
