For the Wine Connoisseur
Adams County may be known for its bountiful orchards, but it also is home to many vineyards and wine tasting rooms. Hop in the car for a long weekend getaway and sample carefully crafted wines of every variety.
Check in to one of Gettysburg Pennsylvania’s cozy accommodations, unpack your car and get ready for an incredible tasting experience. Explore Gettysburg’s downtown shopping and restaurants while enjoying these three tasting rooms within walking distance of Lincoln Square.
On Chambersburg Street you’ll find the Adams County Winery – Gettysburg Wine Shop. They are known for amazing sweet wines. Don’t forget to pick up your passport and collect your first stamp!
Next, head to Reid’s Winery’s Cider House on Baltimore Street less than half a mile away. Sample both wine AND hard cider at this great spot and earn two Adams County Pour Tour stamps. Sit out back on their patio and relax with a flight. If you’re hungry, head across the street to the Farnsworth House Inn Restaurant and Sweney’s Tavern for a historic and yummy lunch.
Walk on over to Buddy Boy Winery’s Tasting Room next, just a quarter of a mile away. Don’t forget to try a wine slushy along with their uniquely named wines!
Enjoy brunch at one of our amazing restaurants before heading to your first Adams County Pour Tour stop of the day. Drive to nearby Orrtanna and visit Adams County Winery. Sit outside on their patio and pair your wine with a wood-fired pizza from the Terrace Bistro. Many weekends they will have live music, games, food trucks and special events at the winery!
Before leaving Orrtanna you may want to make a stop at Mister Ed’s Elephant Museum & Candy Emporium. This roadside attraction is home to over 10,000 elephants, peanuts and amazing homemade fudge.
Wake up and stretch your legs with a battlefield hike to get in some history and exercise before beginning another day along the Adams County Pour Tour.
Start your day with Boyer Cellars – the newest addition to Boyer Nurseries & Orchards. Some of the produce used in the wines and ciders at Boyer Cellars are made from apples grown in their orchards. This family farm has a fruit market with juicy fresh fruits and vegetables that you must check out before departing.
Now that you’ve tried Adams County’s wines, and a few of our ciders, come back for our beer, our spirits and more cider. Keep collecting stamps and earning our exciting Adams County Pour Tour prizes!
