Overview

The Inn at Grace Winery

“SUI GENERIS”

The idea for the winery came about from the question, “What are you going to do with the old barn?” which was posed to us many times over the years. The answer varied depending on who was asked, but the winery concept always seemed to be part of the answer. In 2007, a recipient of the answer helped push us along by arranging a meeting with a group of people in the wine industry. Next time we turned around we had ordered vines and a tractor was delivered.

The name Grace Winery and the dragonfly are a tribute to proprietor Chris Le Vine’s sister Gracie, who owned Sweetwater Farm prior to Chris and his wife Vicki taking over the property in 1999.

The winery is housed in our 1750’s bank barn. The barn’s original purpose was as a malting barn to malt barley and other grains for distilled spirits. Over the years it was altered many times to be used for livestock, storage and parties.

By the mid–2000s it was in disrepair. The renovations began in December 2008 and were completed in April 2010. All of the timber framing consists of mortise and tenon construction. A Great amount of detail was considered in the design, including sinks made from an original horse trough and a bar top fashioned from the original steps of Independence Hall.

TASTING ROOM

Our tasting room is open Friday – Sunday. We hold our tastings in 2 locations on the property, either the Barn Tasting room or the Vineyard tasting patio. Our regular hours are Friday from 4 – 9 pm, Saturday and Sunday from noon- 5 pm.  Please check our calendar for location and hours of operation as we alter our hours and location for private events. Wine can be purchased as a tasting, by the glass or bottle. A tasting flight is $15 per person. Food is also available for purchase.
