Project Description:

Nestled at the base of North Mountain and surrounded by farmland, The Winery at The Long Shot Farm is Cumberland County’s first winery with their own vineyard, offering estate-bottled wine. All grapes and most of the fruit are grown on the premises, taking advantage of the unique agricultural resources of the Cumberland Valley, and using sustainable agricultural practices. The Winery specializes in traditional wines, produced from hybrid and vinifera grapes as well as “country” style wines made from other fruits. The initial selection includes varietals such as Chambourcin, Chardonel, Concord and Vidal Blanc grape wines as well as Blackberry and Apple fruit wines.

The tasting room and production area are housed in a renovated stone and wood barn dating back to the early 1800s, and a large deck overlooks the vineyards and pond allowing visitors to savor both their wine and the picturesque view of the Cumberland Valley. The renovations were funded in part by a $74,550 Tourism Product Development Grant from the Cumberland Area Economic Development Corporation (CAEDC). CAEDC also assisted the Winery with a letter of support for a USDA Value-Added Producer Grant in 2016 to finish and bottle their wine.

The Winery at the Long Shot Farm is part of the Cumberland Valley Beer Trail. Learn more here.

“We have been growing grapes and berries in the Cumberland Valley for many years, and we are so thankful for the generous support from CAEDC, allowing us to share our passion for making wine,” said Tina Weyant, co-owner of the family-owned and operated winery.
