Hauser Estate Winery has been established as an alternative agri-tourism venture in the historic area of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Grape vineyards are the newest use of our fertile farmland, previously home to acres of Pennsylvania’s apples. With extensive research and encouragement to expand into vineyards, we have excitingly undertaken this newest path into agriculture.
An underground winery production facility sits beneath our 360 degree glass enclosed tasting room that overlooks miles of farmland, orchards, and forests, extending toward the national Civil War Battlefield. On July 22, 2008, the tasting room opened its doors to an enthusiastic public. In the fall of 2008, an ancillary shop was opened, conveniently located in downtown Gettysburg at 17 On the Square. Then during 2011, a store in Dillsburg opened along Route 15.
Our story begins over 50 years ago with our patriarch, John “Jack” Hauser. Jack, who is the namesake of our popular hard cider, led the Musselman Canning Company into national recognition beginning in the 1950s. John, and his wife Helen, owned the land where our apples and grapes are grown. Eventually that land was passed down through the generations, and today, we continue to use the fruit in our products. We hope you enjoy our efforts and passion to preserve America’s farmland.
