Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
From historic taverns to ethnic cuisine, farm-to-table dining to unique edibles, the tastes of Gettysburg are sure to please every palate.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
Eight miles west of Gettysburg off Route 30, discover Gettysburg's first winery and Pennsylvania's fifth oldest operating winery. Complimentary tastings of award-winning wines in a Civil War era bank barn. The gift shop offers a wide selection of wines and accessories. Tours are available daily by reservation. Open 10am to 6pm, seven days a week. (Closed Thanksgiving Day)
Kicking off a festive fall season is the Dancing Pumpkin wine release during the annual Harvest Festival on September 28th. Dancing Pumpkin is a semi-sweet white wine with pumpkin spice notes that can be served slightly chilled or mulled during those colder days and nights. In October there will be two Pumpkin Succulent craft classes, the first annual Fall Fest, and the release of two canned wines leading into a busy November with three wine releases and a Thanksgiving Centerpiece craft class.
Enjoy special events, festivals, craft classes and pairing events at the winery throughout the year. Be sure to visit our website and sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook for all the great happenings at Adams County Winery!
Open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until the end of October, the Terrace is a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine with homemade wood-fired pizzas and appetizers from our Terrace Bistro brick oven (open from 11am-5pm). Spend time with friends and family at one of our umbrella-covered tables providing plenty of seating to relax while taking in an up-close view of our beautiful gardens.
You can also visit our Gettysburg Wine Shop located at 25 Chambersburg Street in downtown Gettysburg where you can enjoy complimentary wine tastings, purchase wine by the bottle or by the glass and purchase wine accessories and gifts.
