As the premier thoroughbred racing and breeding farm in the South for over a century, Belle Meade Plantation was the center of hospitality in the 1800s. Five United States presidents have enjoyed the renowned hospitality of the Harding and Jackson families, and the 5,400 acres that made up the Plantation were home to some of the greatest horses in racing history. The Plantation’s hospitality always included homemade wine, with the use of its many wild and domestic grapevines. In November 2009, the opening of The Winery at Belle Meade Plantation ensured the long tradition of hospitality would continue.
