What kind of winery has hundreds of customers waiting outside of their tasting room on a Monday morning?
This is Tsali Vineyard . I bet you never heard of it. It is located in Sweet Water, TN, which happens to be on the "Path of Totality" of the 2017 solar eclipse. Yes you guessed it, that Monday is August 21st.
Yard signs read "$20 parking" lead the way to the vineyard. Hundreds of cars parked on the field across a narrow path, and there is big crowd with gazebos, lawn chairs everywhere. The tasting room is a tiny bungalow and the waiting line of scores of people spills to the outside. It is so crowed inside that I didn't even get to see what they are serving. They opened a second tasting room to meet the demand, but that does little to ease the waiting line. And there is a third line, even longer, for the bathroom!
