Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"The guinea hen and dumplings dish—traditional to the region—was passed down to Executive Chef Joseph Lenn from his grandmother, and incorporates potato gnocchi, confit guinea hen and foraged mushrooms. The shrimp and grits is also a standout item."

Perfect Pairing
Freshly ground pencil cob corn grits with Tennessee black truffles and black truffle Hollandaise paired with Château Rayas Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Wine Events
Blackberry Farm offers three different private tasting experiences to accommodate beginners through the connoisseur with a focus on pairing food and wine. We also offer about 14 wine- and food-focused events throughout the year, including three days of food and wine-centered events featuring visiting winemakers interacting with guests.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
