Oenological (Click here for how to pronounce)
Organized in 1973, the Tennessee Viticultural and Oenological Society (TVOS) is a group of private citizens who have come together with the expressed purpose of:
- Conducting and promoting the study of the art and science of grape growing (viticulture) and wine-making (oenology).
- Distributing information concerning these subjects to interested parties.
- Promoting conditions which will encourage grape growing and the wine industry in the state of Tennessee.
Currently, there are about 200 members from all areas of Tennessee and neighboring states. Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in grape growing or wine-making: from the "backyard" grower with just a few vines, to the wine industry professional. Membership dues are only $35 per year and include a FREE subscription to Wine Maker Magazine!
TVOS currently has annual meeting every February, and a Summer Fun Day each June or July.
This website is for everyone including the professional, the amateur, or the curious first time winemaker.
