Red Heifer Winery
Many things have changed since the 1940s, but at Red Heifer Winery in Smithsburg Maryland, some things will always remain the same. Hard work, passion for your craft, and pride in your product has been the same since the time Kevin’s great-grandfather purchased the farm in the 40’s. Now a new generation, Kevin and Yvonne Ford, take their turn at working the land and making a living off its gifts.
Red Heifer Winery represents 56 acres at the crest of the property. Formerly the Naylor Peach Orchard, the sloping hillside with a southeast orientation is the perfect location for growing grapes. In addition, what makes Red Heifer Winery unique is the climate east of Smithsburg, Maryland. Situated at an elevation of 1,500 feet adjacent to the Catoctin Mountains, the grapes in the vineyard enjoy warm summer days with cool summer nights and a constant breeze.
As you plan your trip to Red Heifer, remember to pack a picnic basket and a blanket–guests are permitted to bring snack items such as bread, crackers, fruits, and cheeses to enjoy at the winery, and a blanket. From the property, you can take in an amazing view of the vineyards with a forested countryside as its backdrop. So make a day of it! Enjoy the view, the wine, and the company. Welcome to Red Heifer Winery.
