Love and Exile Wines
BORN IN NASHVILLE, TN FROM THE LOVE OF WINE AND THE THREAT OF EXILE.
Tyler Alkins had a limited time to start another business after having sold his former construction company or he would be deported back from the city and country he called home. He wanted to stay in Nashville and do something he loved; make wine.
And though Tennessee is better known for it’s whiskey and beer, Tyler saw an opportunity to make wine that was approachable in its taste, price, and presentation. So he recruited the some of the most well-known winemakers from Italy and California to teach him processes perfected over centuries to create a wine that’s carefully crafted yet chuggable.
The wine they create together is brought back to Nashville where it is finished and bottled or canned locally in a winery that Tyler and the small team built in an abandoned car garage less than a mile from downtown called Nashville Urban Winery. NUW now serves as the home for L&E and is a high end event space for events, concerts, tastings, and has an on-site Wine Shop that sells the full line of Love and Exile wines.
Shameless plug alert- Come by the winery or order a can or bottle online to experience what makes Nashville’s only local wine brand unique and perfect for your personal stash or as a local Nashville made gift.
