Grinder’s Switch Winery at Marathon Village
A self-proclaimed “hobby out of control”, Grinder’s Switch Winery has been growing and producing award-winning wine for nearly a decade. Grinder’s Switch Winery is the brainchild of Joey and Gail Chessor, the small-town couple who turned their dream into a reality and a thriving family business.
The winery is located in the heart of middle Tennessee, in the rolling countryside of Hickman County. Surrounded by 110 acres of trees and beautiful vistas, the Chessor family nurtures a 7 acre vineyard on their family estate. The winery also includes the tank room which can hold more than 15,000 gallons of wine and is the epicenter of wine production.
The hand-built log cabin that was once their family home has been converted into a cozy tasting room that welcomes visitors far and wide. The cabin was built in 1982 by the owners, Gail and Joey, to raise their family in. It has become the symbol of the winery’s philosophy for providing Southern charm and sophisticated taste. Grinder’s Switch Winery prides itself on making wine delicious and approachable while providing a fun and friendly atmosphere.
In the Spring of 2015, Grinder’s Switch Winery took their philosophy to the heart of the big city and opened a location in downtown Nashville in the historic Marathon Village. This satellite location provides customers new and old a chance to enjoy some of Tennessee’s best wine more often.
