John and Katherine celebrate 20 years owning Adams County Winery

When Katherine Bigler and her husband, John Kramb, came to Gettysburg on a Fourth of July weekend getaway in 1998, they had no way of knowing that it would be a life-altering vacation. John, retired Army, who enjoys history convinced his wife Katherine, then active Army, to take a quick weekend trip to one of the most historical towns in the United States, Gettysburg. During that visit they made a stop at the Adams County Winery to experience a local winery with a rich history of its own. During the visit then owner, Tom Campbell, mentioned to John and Katherine about how he and his wife, Beverly, had just put.

FALL-ow The Rules

By: Vaughn Crouse   Not a fan of rules? Me neither. There are way too many rules. Sometimes, I understand their purpose and I can even appreciate that without some rules chaos could ensue. My wife, family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, or anyone that has ever known me for longer than 30 seconds can verify that if there is a rule placed upon me then I will probably break it. While this often done intentionally, this doesn’t mean that I am a radical, agent of chaos who laughs in the face conformity. There are some that we bend from time to time but there are others that should never be broken..

Mother’s Day

09 May 2018

 What does Mother’s Day mean to you? Each year, on the second Sunday in May, we dedicate this day to show our appreciation to one of the most important people in our lives. The day isn’t limited to celebrating our own mother but is also about honoring motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society. It’s about showing our appreciation for their selfless acts, undaunting strength and unconditional love. Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis, who wanted to honor her deceased mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, by continuing the work she started as an activist. Ann Reeves Jarvis cared for wounded soldiers, from both sides, during the Civil.

For the Love of Chocolate

For the Love of Chocolate by Vaughn Crouse Adams County Winery will host the event on February 17th and 18th I love chocolate! There isn’t a bad time or place to indulge in the sweetness of chocolate. It can be milk chocolate or dark chocolate, I’m not picky. It can be before or after dinner, it can serve as breakfast as I drive into work or be used as a little mid-afternoon snack that helps me get through the rest of the workday. I have been known to go through great lengths just to be able to enjoy a moment of chocolatey bliss. One time around Halloween, my soon-to-be wife.
