The Blair family has owned the farmland and hillsides where the original vineyard in Rockland Township lies. The high elevation, the cool temperatures and the eastern and southern aspects of the slopes in Eastern Pennsylvania make an ideal location for the cold climate grapes of northern Europe.
The love of wine and the appeal of wine country enticed us to plant grapes on the higher and steeper hillsides of the family farm. Started in 1998, these 8 acres host Pinot Gris, Chardonnay & Pinot Noir with future plantings of Sauvignon Blanc in the Spring of 2012.
In 2008 we purchased an additional 35 acres of land in the hills outside Kutztown. We currently have 23 acres of vines planted in 7 different varietals, with several acres left for a plantings of different varietals.
In 2009 we began building a gravity flow winery on site. This winery allows us to pump the wine less frequently, which in turn minimizes the amount of oxygen the wine comes in contact with, which enhances the flavors of the wines, especially Pinot Noir.
We opened our new doors to the public in Summer of 2010 and could not be happier with our new winery and location. The view overlooks the Blue Mountains as well as a sloping vineyard. It's always a perfect day for a picnic on our lawn.
