Food + Wine

5 Great Inns for Foodies

by Kate Parham

Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee

Blackberry Farm is a 63-room resort (and a Relais & Châteaux member) located on 9,200 acres in the hills of the Smoky Mountains. While fly-fishing, white-water rafting, and mountain biking are all reasons to go, the food and wine program here is perhaps the most enticing draw. You'll find 180,000 bottles of wine, farm-to-table cuisine, and a cast of artisans, including a gardener, a butcher, a bee keeper, a larder, a cheesemaker and a preservationist (thats code for jam-maker and canning enthusiast). Plus, every month chefs, sommeliers, and winemakers from around the country (think Hugh Acheson, Michael Mina and Sean Brock) head to Blackberry Farm to teach cooking classes, lead beer and wine tastings, and offer tours, like the upcoming Black Perigord Truffle tour. Now, theres also a brewery on-site where guests can taste their way through the farms three new signature brews.
