About Our Winery

Many things have changed since the 1940s, but some things will always remain the same. Hard work, passion for what you do and pride in your craft 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 of 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 our vineyard enjoy warm summer days with cool summer nights and a constant breeze.

As you plan your trip to our vineyard, remember to pack a picnic basket and a blanket because from our property, you can take in an amazing view of the forested countryside. So make a day of it. Enjoy the view, the wine, and the company. Welcome to Red Heifer Winery.

Standard Wine Tastings include a choice of 5 wines for $5. Keep the souvenir glass for an additional $3. Guests are permitted to bring snack items such as bread, crackers, fruits, and cheeses to enjoy at the winery.
