Our Story

From the vine, to the city

Our story began in 2009 as we opened our doors and became Knoxville’s first winery and Tennessee’s first urban winery. Our initial Wine Bar was located in a basement on Jackson Ave in the Old City. Eventually, we out grew the space and began the hunt for a new  home. This led us to our current location in the Historic Southern Railway Station on Depot Ave. We bottle, package, and ship from our location. Our wine is made from all locally grown fruit from Tennessee growers, which we make at our location at the Historic Southern Railway Station. Blue Slip prides itself on providing a unique urban, historical and truly Tennessee wine experience, as well as provide special event venue space ranging from weddings, banquets, live performances, and private parties.
