Adams County Winery to Release fan favorite wine, First Crush

July 21, 2022 | Wine Release

The winery’s ‘First Crush’ wine is infused with orange peel and vanilla to create a dreamy combination. This wine will be released July 30th with a live music event at their Farm Winery location.


Adams County Winery, Gettysburg’s original winery and the fifth oldest operating winery in PA, will be releasing a fan favorite wine, First Crush, on July 30th, 2022 at both of their winery locations, while supplies last. The winery used Orange Muscat grapes for this semi-sweet summer seasonal wine, infused with orange peels and vanilla. “This citrus wine has soft floral notes and a lovely vanilla undertone” said Winemaker Bernard Cannac at Adams County Winery.

“Creating a wine that is so loved throughout Adams County and beyond isn’t easy. It takes a very large collaborative effort from everyone on the team to make it happen, yet here we are going into our 3rd year of making First Crush. Specialty wines are not typically brought back onto our shelves, but we just can’t seem to go a year without it!” said Tasting Room Manager Adam Sweitzer.

The Farm Winery in Orrtanna, PA will be celebrating the July 30th release by featuring an event onsite from 1pm – 4pm that includes free live music with Vintage Crew. The Terrace Bistro, the winery’s onsite wood-fired pizza oven, will be open and serving handmade pizzas and appetizers from 11am – 4pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This is a rain or shine event.

Adams County Winery opened its doors in 1975 in Orrtanna, PA. The Farm Winery location sits on 40 picturesque acres of rolling hills and farmland. The winery operates out of an 1860’s bank barn and is a registered historic bank barn of Adams County. In 1988, one of their most popular wines, Tears of Gettysburg, was born and remains one of the oldest wines in Pennsylvania. The vineyard is home to five different varieties of grapes, spanning over 12.5 acres. Adams County Winery is a nine-time winner of Best Winery in the Gettysburg’s Greatest awards, and a local favorite spot to relax and enjoy a glass of local PA wine.
