About Mount Hope Winery

Over the course of two centuries, Mount Hope Estate and Winery, located in Northern Lancaster County, has grown from a private residence to a flourishing historic estate featuring spectacular entertainment. Outdoor festivals, indoor theater, a Victorian wine shop and on-site brewery and winery locations provide something for everyone 365 days of the year.

Estate History

Mount Hope began as the summer home for four generations of the Grubb family, an early American iron master family who found their way from England seeking their fortune. The properties that were to become the Estate were purchased in 1779 and Peter Grubb established an iron furnace at Mount Hope in 1784. His son, Henry Bates Grubb, built the original Federal Period Mansion between 1800-1805. At the same time, the formal gardens surrounding the Mansion were created including trees, an elaborate grand avenue of colored flowers and pillared entrances to the various stone roadways leading to the Estate, all of which continues to exist this day.

Daisy Elizabeth Brooke Grubb (1850-1936) was the last member of the Grubb family to reside at Mount Hope. It was she, in 1895, who enlarged the manor home to an elaborate 32-room Mansion, complete with ballroom and billiards room, that featured many Victorian elements in a unique blend of Federal and Victorian architecture. Special elements included a freestanding walnut staircase in the front hallway, brass and crystal chandeliers, Egyptian marble fireplaces, stained glass windows and ceilings, hand painted ceilings, parquet wood floors, built-in glass cupboards, and hidden walls that accommodate sliding doors.

Miss Daisy passed away in 1936 and Mount Hope was subdivided and sold. It passed through several owners until December 1979 when the estate was purchased by Chuck Romito, who envisioned it as a place where award-winning, quality wines were produced and sold. Vineyards were planted, wines were made and Mount Hope Winery opened for business in 1980. To attract visitors to Mount Hope, a series of weekend events, including a modern-day jousting tournament, presented by a Maryland jousting club. The success of this event led to the creation of a one day Renaissance Festival held in the Estate parking lot.

Today, the second and third floors of the spacious Mansion are used by the staff of Mount Hope Estate as offices and new owners, Scott and Heather Bowser, have dedicated themselves to the continuation of teaching and educating through living history. The PA Renaissance Faire is a 35-acre festival running 13 weekends from Aug-Oct, welcoming over 200,000 guests annually. Extensive renovations to the home have been undertaken and continue today, all with an eye and an ear for entertainment and culture, and with the understanding that the Mansion at Mount Hope is to be a home for all to enjoy. We think Miss Daisy would be pleased.

History of the Mount Hope Winery

In 2015, Mount Hope Winery's wine production returned to Lancaster County for the first time since 1980, when Mount Hope Winery acquired the assets of a winery that closed.

In late 2016, Mount Hope began repurposing an existing barn located approximately 300 feet from the current Wine Shop and parallel to the SBC Brewsmiths Brewery into a new winery. The barn was original built in the 1800's and rebuilt in 1908 after a fire. The ground floor of the new winery will provide 9,250 square feet of workable space. The new winery's equipment will consist of an additional 20,000 gallons, bringing total capacity to 40,000 gallons.

By utilizing this piece of the Estate's history, Mount Hope Estate brings its amenities together with the brewery next door to the winery, the Divine Swine In & Out BBQ across the street, the Wine Shop, Victorian Mansion and Anchor & Mermaid Tavern all within comfortable walking distance for estate visitors.
