Farm Winery Renovation
Starting Monday, January 8th, our farm winery, located at 251 Peach Tree Road in Orrtanna, will be closed Monday through Friday to begin an exciting makeover – that’s right, we are giving our Orrtanna tasting room some major upgrades! “We believe that wine is an experience, and while taste and aroma play a large part in what creates that experience, so does the visual aesthetic from where you are enjoying the wine,” says Vaughn Crouse, business development coordinator. “We have recently updated our brand to reflect a more fun, bright, and approachable wine, and we are now working on aligning our tasting room with that brand as well. We will be updating things such as refinishing the tasting counters and floors, painting walls, updating artwork and many other details throughout the Farm Winery. We look to enhance our guests’ experience in the tasting room while retaining the beauty of our historic barn.”
Open on Weekends
Of course, our farm winery in Orrtanna will continue to operate on weekends. “With the exception of three major holidays, we haven’t closed our doors, during the week, in more than 19 years,” says Katherine Bigler, owner. Our Farm Winery will maintain its normal hours, 10 a.m – 6 p.m., on weekends during the renovations. This will allow guests the opportunity to see how the project is coming along!
The renovations are expected to last throughout the month of January and possibly February. The work will mainly focus on updating the cosmetics in the tasting room.
Ashcombe January Hours
In addition to the temporary hours changes at the Farm Winery, the hours of operation at the Wine Shop at Ashcombe in Mechanicsburg are also being changed during the winter months. The Mechanicsburg wine shop will be closed during weekdays throughout the season but will keep its regular weekend hours. The Wine Shop at Ashcombe is open on Saturdays from 11 a.m. -6 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

If you want to visit us during the week in January, guests will still be able to visit the Wine Shop at 25C, in downtown Gettysburg, seven days a week with Sunday through Friday hours of 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday hours of 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
