About Our Winery

Holly Ridge Winery is a small, family-owned boutique winery. Since 1998, we have been producing a variety of wines from cultivars grown onsite, as well as those purchased from other growers. We serve Livingston, Tennessee and the Upper Cumberland Wine Trail.

Our customers are mainly people who are 21 to 65 years old. They come from all walks of life and usually enjoy traveling and attending festivals. We also welcome tourists.

Our Mission

Holly Ridge Winery strives to provide high-quality, award-winning wines that are handcrafted onsite. We aim to offer something for every palate—be it traditional reds, fruit-infused wines, white varietals, or port wines.

Humble Beginnings

Our founder, Curtis Wallin, is a classically trained musician and performer. Initially, wine was only his hobby. His passion for this distinct alcoholic beverage eventually led him to establish a winery. He runs the business with assistance from his children, Rebecca and Chris, who have education and experience in Biological and Chemical Sciences. Chris is also a winemaker for another winery near Nashville, Tennessee.

Why Choose Holly Ridge Winery

At Holly Ridge Winery, all of our employees are family members and relatives. Since we are a small, family-owned winery, we are able to give the undivided attention and focus needed to craft truly excellent wine. To ensure the quality of our products, most tastings are conducted directly by the winemaker.


We are also the third oldest winery in the Upper Cumberland area. Moreover, we are the 26th winery to open in Tennessee.
