Relay for Life & American Cancer Society
Our mission is to partner with the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life to help honor those who fight the disease, to support research in finding a cure, and to raise much needed funds.
In 2008, Apple Barn Winery, Hillside Winery, and Mountain Valley Winery began partnering with Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society to host the STOMP Out Breast Cancer event. STOMP Out Breast Cancer is an awareness walk that begins and ends at Hillside Winery with stops at the Apple Barn Winery and Mountain Valley Winery along the way. At each location there are fun activities for everyone including grape stomping, bobbing for apples, and more! The event was so successful that it became an annual event held every October.
In an effort to further increase awareness , the wineries/distillery on the Rocky Top Wine Trail offer a “pink” wine/moonshine every year! For the first 1000 bottles sold, we donate $5.00 to the American Cancer Society to help fund research. Since we started our “pink” wines/moonshine, we have raised $100,000 to help battle this terrible disease. Each winery/distillery on the Rocky Top Wine Trail creates a unique “pink” wine/moonshine so be sure to visit all the location and pick up a bottle of each!
