Downtown Expedition

Gettysburg has an incredible tasting experience right in the heart of its downtown streets.

Day 1

Start off your Adams County Pour Tour adventure by sampling some wine at Adams County Winery – Wine Shop at 25C on Chambersburg Street. They are known for their sweet libations produced right here in the county.

Go a little further down Chambersburg Street and you’ll see Knob Hall Winery’s Gettysburg tasting room. Knob Hall has a dryer selection to balance out your tasting journey. If you find a wine you particularly like, purchase a bottle and head across the street for lunch at Food 101. They are BYOB!

Or, explore the boutiques and shops in and around Lincoln Square. Once you work up an appetite, you’ll have a great selection of restaurants to choose from all within walking distance.

After enjoying a delicious culinary delight, it’s time for more tastings! If it’s nice out you can walk down Baltimore Street to Reid’s Winery: The Cider House. At Reid’s you can add two stamps to your Adams County Pour Tour passport – one for cider and one for wine. Check the event calendar, because Reid’s is known for their open mic nights and live music.

After your tasting, you may want to mix in some of the history that Gettysburg is known for. Right on Baltimore Street you can pick from museums like Civil War Tails at the Homestead Diorama, the Shriver House Museum, the Jennie Wade House Museum, The Rupp House or Gettysburg Museum of History.

Finish your sampling with a stop at Buddy Boy Winery’s Gettysburg tasting room, also located on Baltimore Street. Buddy Boy has a wide selection of wines for every palate; but if you’re looking to try something a little different order a wine slushy.

If you’ve completed this itinerary, that means you collected five stamps on your tasting passport! Don’t forget to claim your prize at your last Pour Tour stop so you can remember your downtown expedition. Over dinner you can discuss which Pour Tour venues are on your list for your next visit, so you can collect another prize!
