Always Open Saturday & Sunday: Noon to 6 pm
OUR STORY BEGINS IN 2005...with a dream to keep the family farm.
In that year, 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 state 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 with the majority being grown on the eight acres of grape and blackberry vineyards.
Also, the winery is available for small private tastings. Email Us: Info@cellar53winery.com
Currently, the winery does not rent out event space for weddings or any other private event or party.
