Ridge Run Distillery
Located in Chalk Hill, PA near the seat of the Whiskey Rebellion, Ridge Run Distillery produces vodka, moonshine, and brandy using pure spring water and distinct flavors. With a background in winemaking, the owners of Ridge Run are able to produce grape liquors, such as grappa and brandy, of a high quality using grapes grown right across the street. That proximity to their ingredients allows great care to be given to the ingredients from harvest to bottle. Similar care is able to be given to their non-grape products as well. Vodka is made using the famous medicinal waters of the Fayette Springs, un-aged moonshine is made using locally-sourced grains, and whiskey is aged in fresh Pennsylvania oak barrels. From the heart of the whiskey rebellion, through the Ridge Runners (moonshiners) of prohibition, to the micro distillery renaissance sweeping the U.S. today, Ridge Runner Distillery unites the spirit of ingenuity and rebelliousness that distillers had 200 years ago with modern expertise.
Christian W. Klay Winery
When Sharon and John Klay discovered winemaking while living in New York City, they also discovered their passion. The only thing was, they didn't have the space to bring it to fruition. Their solution: relocate to western Pennsylvania and purchase the 215-acre Fayette Springs Farm. From there, they cultivated 14,000 vines, transforming them into award-winning wines that range from dry white to robust red.
Now, Christian W. Klay Winery, which bears the name of the Klays' son, welcomes guests to its picturesque spot for wine tastings, summer concert series, and seasonal shindigs. It also rents out its attractive confines for private events, such as weddings or birthday parties for grapes who just turned 21.
