Our Partners

  • Relay for life is an event for the American Cancer Society.  The American Cancer Society helps those stay well, get well and fight back against cancer. The Rocky Top Wine Trail is happy to partner with the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life by hosting our annual STOMP Out event every October.  This annual event is to help honor those who fight the disease and support research toward a cure.  The wineries also raise donations through the sale of their Pink wines during the months of October and November.


    Robert A.Tino is a renowned East Tennessee artist who captures the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains in his painting. He volunteers his talents to create a limited edition wine label for Sugarland Cellars. Each quarter, fans fidget in anticipation for the new and original wine labels that are accompanied by matching tiles and prints. Celebrating the four beautiful seasons in our area, each wine has been carefully crafted by our Master Winemaker to pair perfectly with the spring flowers, summer rains, fall foliage, and winter scenes.



    Friends of Great Smokey Mountains National Park is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve and protect the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by raising funds, increasing public awareness, and providing volunteers. Since 1993, Friends of the Smokies has helped with black bear conservation, historic preservation and environmental education in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Sugarland Cellars Winery raises $25,000 a year to help further their goals through the sale of seasonal, Robert A. Tino wines.
