Oregon Hill Winery near Morris is expanding its operations into neighboring Clinton County. The winery, the oldest in Lycoming County, opened a wine sales and tasting operation June 6 in Wayne Township, just off the Route 220 McElhattan exit.
The new winery is located at the Old Shoemaker Estate, 67 Reservoir Road, McElhattan, and is the only one in Clinton County. The new establishment will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, offering wine sales by the glass and bottle. Pennsylvania beer will also be available by the glass for consumption on the premise.
“This expansion makes a lot of sense for us,” says Oregon Hill Wine Company president Karon Swendrowski, whose late husband Eric founded Oregon Hill Winery in 1983. “We have a lot of customers from this area, and this is a beautiful setting for people to come, sit and have a glass of wine and enjoy time with friends.”
Swendrowski says the original Oregon Hill Winery building was a former dairy barn. The newest location is at the site of a former horse barn and utilizes wood saved from both locations.
The McElhattan site will feature close to 30 Oregon Hill wines, from dry white and red wines to sweet, fruity wines, plus a signature dessert wine.
A grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration for the McElhattan location is planned for June 26 at 2 p.m.
