After five years of preparation, Smyrna’s very first winery & vineyard, Avian Glen Winery.
About Avian Glen When Avian Glen’s owner Dr. Larry Davis first saw the land he fell in love with it, so he reached out to the owner. Upon meeting her, she told him she wished she could find someone crazy enough to buy the land to which he replied, “Well, I was hoping I could find someone crazy enough to sell this very piece of land to me!” And thus, Avian Glen was born. A long-time resident of Tennessee, Dr. Davis always dreamt of owning and starting his own winery. The name Avian Glen comes from the hummingbirds that he saw on the property when he first purchased the land. Today, the Avian Glen logo features the hummingbird on all of their bottles.
The winery, which stands on the old Gamble farm in Smyrna features seven varieties of wine produced and bottled at the vineyard, and include offerings from sweet Patty Peach to dark red Norton Reserve. . Avian Glen offers free wine tastings daily. On weekends you’ll find live music and other events. The calendar of events is updated weekly. “We want to give people a chance to come out and enjoy time with their friends and family in a beautiful setting,” explains Dr. Davis. In addition to the large outdoor patio and expansive vineyard, Avian Glen brings a new venue for weddings and parties to the area. The winery will also soon feature a gazebo for outdoor weddings, and an indoor event facility will be added within a year.
