    Belle Meade Plantation has a new tour! Journey to Jubilee follows the first African-Americans who were brought to Belle Meade in 1807, and shows how vital their presence was to the existence of the property and to the family until 1906. These men and women were here from enslavement to freedom. They endured, and we want to honor them by telling their story. In this tour, nearly one-hundred years of their history is explored through the research of primary sources. Come trace their existence through the history of Belle Meade Plantation on their Journey to Jubilee.

    After your guided tour, enjoy a complimentary wine tasting at our beautiful winery. The grounds at Belle Meade are self-guided and are available to explore both before and after the tour. Today Belle Meade Plantation retains 34 acres of its original property and several outbuildings including the Mansion and original homestead.  Today’s site functions as an educational resource dedicated to the preservation of Tennessee’s Victorian architecture, history and equestrian history.

    Did the jubilee tour which was interesting got to find out all about the history from when the plantation first began. A little disappointed with the overall house it’s not as big as imagined. But still definitely worth doing.
