Love and Exile Winery and Bar. Born in Nashville from the love of wine and the threat of exile, Love & Exile Bar is a vibrant working winery, restaurant, and event space on Main Street less than a mile from downtown. Although Tennessee is better known for whiskey, Tyler Alkins saw an opportunity to create a wine that was approachable in its taste, price, and presentation. He recruited some of the most well-known winemakers from Italy and California to teach him processes perfected over centuries to create a wine that’s expertly crafted and perfectly 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.
