We're on Cloud {Wine} about Cellar 53 Winery participating in Watertown is for Lovers this year. Before we get into the details about the wine tasting, let's do a little backstory on this quaint, family run winery.

It all began in 2005 when Rebecca and Scott Pachal purchased the remaining 100 acres of Scott's family farm. They orginally planted grapes to become commercial wine grape growers, but due to some law changes, they had to regroup and decided to open a winery (and boy are we glad they did!)

On the Saturday before Easter in 2015, the Paschal's opened the doors to Cellar 53 Winery to the public. They grow the majority of the fruits used for their wines right there on the eight acres of grape and blackberry vineyards. 

Now moving on to the event, you can taste some of their house favorites on February 9 at Watertown is for Lovers.

They will be doing a wine and chocolate pairing for only $15 at B-Side Gallery (next to Nona Lisa's) from 11-3. You will get to taste a red, white, and fruit wine; these will be perfectly paired with a piece of gourmet chocolate. 

For more information on the event, click here or check out the Facebook event.

Make sure to follow them on social media @Cellar53Winery and tag all your pictures at the event with #LoveArrivesinWatertown

AR Workshop is a DIY Boutique coming to Mt. Juliet in February. If you can't wait to get your craft on, come on out to Watertown is for Lovers on February 9, and do some make and take crafts with AR Workshop. They are the sponsor of the events happening at B-side gallery this year. You can make a wood sign for your sweetheart for only $12, or you can make 3 wooden magnets for only $10. If these crafts aren't your "style," browse their available retail on site! 

 

Now, let's get to know the owners of AR Workshop Mt. Juliet.

 

"Haley is a graduate of Mt. Juliet Christian Academy (2014) and Cumberland University (2016 BA and 2018 MBA). Tina is a long time resident of Wilson County and has been employed at Mt. Juliet Christian Academy as the Development Director for 15 years.

It has always been a dream or ours to work together but we really had no idea what that might look like. We had literally discussed every kind of business we could think of from real estate to clothing boutiques but something keep taking us back to the concept of a DIY type business in general but specifically AR Workshop. As long time Wilson Co. residents we were well aware of the need for some type of entertainment that would appeal to a broad age range and interests. 

Once we decided to inquire about the availability of a franchise with AR WORKSHOP we knew right away this was the perfect fit for us as and we hope the residents and visitors of Wilson Co. and surrounding areas will agree when we open our doors in the very near future in Providence Station (Mt. Juliet). 

We look forward to offering something fun for all ages and interests (including those that do not really consider themselves the DIYer). Anyone that knows Tina knows she is not exactly the most creative person and she completes the projects with great ease all while having fun! This is a place for all groups, ages, men and women, those that do not know anything about DIY and the most experienced crafter. Along with our wonderful workshops of wood projects, chunky knit blankets, and specialty classes, we also offer retail for gifts, home decor, jewelry and more!"- Haley Jones and Tina Pressley

 

So come on out to Watertown is for Lovers and meet Mt. Juliet's newest shop and remember to use #LoveArrivesinWatertown to show us those awesome crafts you make.

 

Also, be sure to follow them on Instagram and like their Facebook page to keep up-to-date on all their upcoming workshops!

Still can’t get enough of those twinkling lights?

There's No Place Like Home

Get to know Ashley Shores Wilson County Tennessee

Ashley Shores at Visit WilCOAshley Shores Joins WC TourismI’m finally back home.

Wilson County is most definitely a familiar place to me. So, sit down, kick your feet up, and relax as I tell you a little about myself.

My name is Ashley Shores, and I am the newest addition to the team over at the Wilson County Tourism Department.

I have been a resident of Wilson County for as long as I can remember (like since I was in diapers).  The only time I’ve been away from Wilson County was to go to school in an even smaller town. I went to The University of Tennessee at Martin where I got to live out my dream of being a radio DJ by day and studying at night. I worked at a nationally award-winning radio station for most of my college career, but it wasn’t until I met our current Chancellor, Dr. Keith Carver, that I fell in love with Social Media and knew I wanted to make a career of it.

Fast forward to August 2018. I have graduated and now I have to enter the real world. I moved back to Wilson County, put my nose to the grindstone, and found the perfect job. Well…

That’s where I am now. I will be that voice behind WilCo’s social media. So, if you see puns, pictures, videos, or anything else, that is all me. I am so excited to be working with such an amazing team, but the most important people to my job are YOU GUYS! Tell me where to eat (I love to try new things), shop (I might have a shopping problem), explore (I love to be outside with my pup), and anything else you love in Wilson County.

I want to find all the hidden gems that Wilson County has to offer, and I plan on doing that along with my {fur}ever friend, Jax.

So, here we go! Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore. Adult world commencing in 3...2...1...

I Scream For #WilCo Ice Cream

Snow White Drive In on West Main in Lebanon, TN Snow White Drive In on West Main in Lebanon, TN

In anticipation for warmer weather, I decided to make a trip around Wilson County to restaurants that are known for serving sweet treats on warm spring days! Here’s the scoop on some places to go in Wilco if you’re a softie for some soft serve!

Adelita's Ice Cream Shop Located in Lebanoin TNAdelita's Ice Cream Shop Located in Lebanoin TNMy first stop was Adelita’s Ice Cream Shop located in Lebanon. This ice cream shop is unique because of its Hispanic flair and hospitality. First, I walked in and my eyes were drawn to a wall that is popping with color. Greens, pinks, purples you name it; arranged in a way that’s both exciting and inviting. My eyes were peeled away only to find a wall of ice cream and popsicles. At first, it’s a bit overwhelming; There were so many different colors and flavors, but the staff was very charming and happy to help me decide what flavors to get. I was able to narrow it down to two types of ice cream: vanilla with M & M’s and chocolate with Kit-Kats. I sat down to enjoy my frozen treats at their cute tables, perfect for a small group of people. I took a spoonful of both flavors and was blown away. This place puts the cream in ice cream. Seriously y’all, the Kit Kat was delicious and chocolatey, and the vanilla with M & M’s was a pair made in heaven. Adelita’s Ice Cream Shop is a hidden icy gem that is definitely not vanilla.

Snow White Drive-in in Lebanon, TNSnow White Drive-in In Lebanon, TNThe second stop, Snow White Drive-In on West Main Street, was a step back in time. A typical 1950’s diner complete with a jukebox and spunky waiting staff.  I decided to keep the sweet theme going by ordering a banana split. This banana split was to die for! Underneath the mountains of whipped cream were walnuts, strawberries and even more ice cream, which was quite the pleasant surprise! Other patrons were also eating a banana split, and they were enjoying it just as much as I was. The sounds of town chatter and laughter filled this homey restaurant, making it the perfect place to take the family, or your lunch break. As I was leaving, one of the waitresses told me they served milkshakes. Worried I’d go into a sugar coma if I had anything else sweet, I told them I’d absolutely be back to try one.

adalitas image 1 297x300Today was a sugary adventure I plan on attending more often. Adelita’s Ice Cream Shop and Snow White Drive-In are unique places that call Wilson County home. One gives you scoops of yummy Latino culture, while the other is a historical trip for both you and your taste buds. They are the places to go if you’re looking for a tasty and fun time with your friends and family. Only in #WilCo will you find such frozen fun!

Foodie Friday: #WilCo Donuts

Foodie Friday - WilCo Donuts - Visit Wilson County Foodie Friday - WilCo Donuts

Is it just me or are there a LOT of donut shops here in WilCo? I don’t mean Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts (not that I don’t also frequent those stops as well). I mean made-from-scratch, mom-and-pop, fresh out of the oven, melt in your mouth donut shops.

Since I’m new to the area, I felt like it was my duty to officially taste test those donut shops – it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!

Stop #1: Donut Time (Lebanon)

Donut Time In Lebanon, TN Donut Time In Lebanon, TN Donut Time was my first stop on and did not disappoint! The staff was super friendly, and with a steady stream of customers entering while I was there, I could tell that this was clearly a local favorite. I tried an obscene amount of donuts here (for research purposes of course), but my favorite was the apple fritter! I’m usually not a big apple fritter person when I’m in a donut shop but upon the prompting of fellow customers and staff I tried one – and will definitely be getting them more frequently here at Donut Time!

Stop #2: Donut Palace (Lebanon)

Donut Palace In Lebanon, TNDonut Palace In Lebanon, TNDonut Palace is actually on my way to work every day, and what’s even MORE convenient, is their DRIVE THRU WINDOW! That’s right, I don’t even have to get out of my car to stock up on these sweet, glazed babies! Although, I decided for my first trip, to go inside and check out all the donuts they had to offer. The selection did not disappoint and I left with my “traditional” favorites: glazed, blueberry and chocolate with sprinkles. Delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

J. Clayborn's in Lebanon, TNStop #3: J. Clayborn’s (Lebanon)

I’ve been hearing about J. Clayborn’s ever since I moved to #WilCo so I was excited to finally try it out! It definitely won my heart by it’s nostalgic café atmosphere where the smell of fresh brewed coffee and sweet baked goods welcomes you as you enter this tucked away gem. I decided to let the staff at J. Clayborn’s pick out two donuts I should try, which ended up being a pumpkin cake donut with a maple frosting and a classic cake donut with chocolate frosting. J. Clayborn’s isn’t playing around when it comes to their donuts – the frosting was rich and the cake texture was thick but fluffy! This is definitely a place I will continue to visit!

 

 

 

Stop #4: Gourmet Donuts (Mount Juliet)

Gourmet Donuts 3 300x225Gourmet Donuts 3 300x225My last stop on this “Tour de Donuts” was Gourmet Donuts located in Mount Juliet. This time, I had a helper with me (my 18-month daughter Lucy) to help me taste test! The staff was super friendly and the donut selection was substantial. We decided to pick up a dozen (plus a couple…) to take to Lucy’s daycare as a treat! It was so hard to choose which one I was going to try, but at the end of the day, I thought I’d try a traditional glazed (ok, I also had a few donut holes but who’s counting…) Since I live in Mount Juliet, Gourmet Donuts has now become my weekend “go-to” morning treat!

So if you are looking for a sweet start to your day in #WilCo, try one of our amazing donut shops (or all of them – I won’t judge!)

Springtime in #WilCo

Stardust Drive In Logo

Spring weather is finally here! I know I’m new to the area and you may be saying “Amy, we will still get frosty mornings and cold fronts before we can officially welcome spring.” And to that I say, stop raining on my parade and let me wear my flip flops.

So in honor of this early warm-ish weather, I present to you a SPRING theme for this week’s #WilCo happenings!

STARDUST DRIVE-IN THEATRE

This weekend marks the beginning of the Stardust Drive-In season! I have heard about this place and I have to say I am SO EXCITED to check this spot out! Short of drinking a bottled coca cola while watching a Yankees game and eating a hot dog, there is nothing more “Americana” than a drive-in movie. Also, where else can you see TWO movies for $8.50. You can stop by their concession stand of course, OR, you can bring your own food for a charge of $6.00 – which is a pretty cool concept and totally worth me begging my husband to grab a Pizza on our way to Stardust!

PAWS FOR A CAUSE 5K RUN 

Since it’s finally nice outside, we can start being more active outdoors! Head to Charlie Daniels Park in Mount Juliet on Saturday, March 3rd for the “Paws For A Cause” 5K race benefiting the New Leash on Life organization! The race is sponsored by Tito’s Vodka and registration includes all sorts of fun goodies (t-shirt, medal, race photos, and other fun items!) After the 5K, there is a post-race party at the Corner Pub – and get this, the whole event is DOG FRIENDLY! So register HERE and bring your furry friend with you (your dog of course, not your friend who still hasn’t prepared for wearing shorts after the winter months…)

LONG HUNTER STATE PARK SPRING HIKING TOUR

On Sunday, March 4th at 1:00PM, head to Long Hunter State Park for their Spring Hiking Tour. The hiking tour will include a one-mile hike along the inland trail and will be Ranger-led. Leashed pets are permitted, so bring the whole family. You will turn onto the third road (on the right) after turning into the park to meet the Ranger and fellow hikers! For more information and to register, click HERE.

WEED WRANGLE AT CEDARS OF LEBANON STATE PARK

A nation-wide initiative called “Weed Wrangle” is a program where volunteers from the community gather in public parks to help eradicate exotic, invasive plants in preparation for the spring and summer seasons. So come to Cedars of Lebanon State Park on Saturday, March 3rd from 9AM – 1PM to help us wrangle those weeds! This is a great way to give back to the community, and if you have any kiddos, bring them to help too! To register for the event, click HERE.

HORESBACK RIDING AT JURO STABLES

I’m not a “country girl” by any stretch of the imagination, but I LOVE horseback riding! One of my favorite memories from visiting Ireland was riding horseback through Killarney National Park. I believe horseback riding is a MUST when visiting a new area, as it is a fun way to get a sense of the natural beauty of a destination. So definitely check out Juro Stables when you are visiting #WilCo. Juro Stables is located in Mt. Juliet, and they offer group trail rides as well as private rides and lessons. For more information or to reserve your ride, call (615) 773-7433.
