Adams County Winery: Gettysburg, PA

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!

Santa, Mrs. Claus, and a few of their elves even stopped by to visit Margarita and tell her she was on the Nice List!

 

 

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.

                                                                  Rita decided to do some shopping of her own!

We found a cool Pointer print, which we now have hanging in our home:

…and a few other fun gifts:

Hauser Estate Winery: Biglerville, PA

Previously home to acres of apple orchards, Hauser Estate Winery ‘s tasting room is located right outside of Gettysburg.  Beneath the tasting room is an underground winery production facility.  The winery also has a location in downtown Gettysburg on Lincoln Square.

We visited the tasting room, which was situated on a hill, and had a gorgeous view.

We sat on the outside deck, as dogs were not allowed inside.

Their outdoor patio was dog-friendly.

 

We enjoyed the wine and the views here!

PuppyPalooza, Detour Winery, Granite Hill Campground, and The Mason Dixon Line!

Cello participated in the PuppyPalooza Dock Diving Contest Hosted by Chesapeake Dock Dogs at Detour Winery in Keymar, MD.

For this event, we stayed at Granite Hill Campground in Gettysburg, PA, as this was the closest full-hookup campground to the winery.

The campground had a cute “Red Shed Cafe” that offered breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Cello crossed over the Mason Dixon Line to get to and from the PuppyPalooza dock diving event!

Detour Winery is located in Keymar, Md.  We drove on some really beautiful country roads to get there. The winery provided free tastings of their wines for the dock dogs participants, and offered wine by the bottle or glass for sale.  They were also selling a really cool wine “sippy cup” that I just HAD to have…!

This was the first contest that we have attended where the dock was set up into a pond instead of a pool.
