Several years ago, on a trip to Nashville, we discovered a special winery in Tennessee. Special, because their wine is exceptional. Generally, I would say that the wineries in Tennessee make mostly sweet wines. Chateau Ross is an exception. They make a variety of wines and all but one are dry.
While searching the internet looking for wineries along the drive to Nashville, I found Chateau Ross. Their choices of wines are from some of my favorite grape varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Chancellor. Their website described the wines and I was intrigued. We had to call ahead because they don’t have regular hours. We visited and enjoyed the wine and the visit with Deborah, the owner. Every wine we tasted was excellent.
This weekend, we made our third visit to Chateau Ross. The wine was just as good as it had been in the past. This visit we also met Deborah’s husband Ross, the co-owner and winemaker. From creative names like Big Bitch Red to Midnight Cabernet Sauvignon, their wines are exceedingly well made.
While I seldom visit wineries that require an appointment for a visit, this is a delightful exception. I’m glad to call ahead. I recommend a visit if you are near Nashville. They are just a few miles from the Kentucky border.
