Halbrendt Vineyard is a small winery owned by a husband and wife who built their winery while both holding full-time jobs at Penn State University Fruit Research & Extension Center. We very much enjoyed the wines here, and the tasting room is dog-friendly!

Adams County Winery is one of the oldest wineries in Pennsylvania, and also was voted Best Winery in Gettysburg. Best of all, they have free wine tastings every day!

Dogs of Gettysburg Pet & Gift Emporium
During our stay in Gettysburg this past Thanksgiving, Margarita had the opportunity to go shopping with her PAWrents!
Dogs of Gettysburg Pet & Gift Emporium is a Civil War inspired shop that contains unique gifts for both people and dogs.
We found a cool Pointer print, which we now have hanging in our home:

11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry War Dog Memorial: The Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg, PA
We took Lager to the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry War Dog Memorial located in The Gettysburg National Military Park .
Location: Gettysburg, PA
Sculptor: E. A. Kretschman
“Sallie,” a brindle Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was the regimental mascot for the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. Given to 1st Lt William R. Terry as a four-week old puppy, Sallie grew up among the men of the regiment. Sallie followed the men on marches and to the battlefield. At the Battle of Gettysburg, the dog got separated from the unit. Unable to find her way, Sallie returned to the Union battle line at Oak Ridge, where she stood guard over the dead and wounded. The dog continued her faithful service through February, 1865, when she was struck by a bullet to her head in the battle of Hatcher’s Run, Virginia. She was buried on the field of battle. For her devotion to the men, Sallie is memorialized at the 11th Pennsylvania monument erected at Gettysburg.”

Best of all, they are dog friendly, and have their own vineyard dog, Mariah , who Margarita quickly made friends with!
We will definitely be adding this winery to our “visit regularly” list!
