Rutherford County does not have towns of any size. There are no industries of consequence and while there is no spectacular scenery, there is plenty of the relaxing type.

Abstract:
While the Teensy Winery may not be able to compete with the larger operations in the state in terms of volume, they are believed to be on par in quality.
