Everyone said we were crazy when we gave up our jobs (teaching & pharmaceutical sales) to open a winery. They were right in a way, because we are crazy about what we do.

It all started with a trip to the Finger Lakes region of New York. There, we fell in love with grape growing & wine making.

We decided to try it on our own here in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. So, we planted 6 varieties of grapes on our driveway’s split rail fence. When those 70 vines flourished, we cleared about four-acres of our six-acre property to plant a vineyard.

It took about six years before we had enough grapes to start our business. We opened our Pocono winery on September 1, 2009, our 20th Wedding Anniversary.

It wasn’t long before Randy thought, “If it’s this much fun to own a vineyard & winery, how much more fun would it be to have a vineyard, winery & distillery?”

We opened our Pocono distillery on Labor Day Weekend in 2013, the same weekend we celebrated the 4th anniversary of the winery & our 24th wedding anniversary.

It’s been more than 15+ years since we planted our first few dozen vines. Now, we have a nearly 100-acre farm and thousands of vines in our vineyard.

In May of 2017, we moved our business out of our home & into a beautiful new building. There’s at least four times as much space with a covered wrap around porch & stunning vineyard views. 
It’s been a wonderful labor of love & we truly appreciate all of our loyal customers who have made this such an amazing journey.

Thank you,
Randy & Linda Rice
