KINGSPORT — The Kingsport Economic Development Board took the next step Tuesday in the process of establishing a winery in the city.
The KEDB voted to approve four separate motions, all related to the creation of the demonstration winery on the grounds of the MeadowView Conference Resort and Convention Center.
As part of the plan, the city is working with Michael Reedy, owner of Reedy Creek Cellars of Sullivan County, to open the demonstration winery at the site of an existing golf maintenance building at Meado w Vi e w.
The plan also calls for creating a wine cellar-themed meeting room inside the conference center as well as a retail space where wine could be sold by the bottle.
