It was good to see all those who came to celebrate the first wine of the vintage on November 21. The Dornfelder Nouveau 2015 sold out immediately.

On this Thanksgiving weekend, we thank all of our customers for their support in 2015!

Stargazers Winery Tasting Room will be open for tastings and sales Saturdays and Sundays noon to five through December 27. Take note of that date so you do not fail to buy our Sparkling Wine for toasting the arrival of 2016. 

In 2016 Stargazers Winery Tasting Room will be closed for the months of January and February.

Stargazers Vineyard & Winery now participates in the Brandywine Artisan Wine Trail...


Posted 7/9/2015 4:35pm by John Weygandt.

252 years ago Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon teamed up to lay out the Mason-Dixon Line. 31 miles west of Philadelphia stands the Harlan House (shown below) where, in 1763,  Mason and Dixon began measuring due south to set the new line for the border with Maryland. They determined latitude and longitude from the stars, progressing from PA to Delaware and then to Maryland to run the line.

Come celebrate these famous Star Gazers with a Rendezvous with Mason & Dixon at Stargazers Vineyard August 8. First course to be served at 7 pm. This year we are pleased to have with us a noted authority and lecturer on those famous men, Todd Babcock, who will give us details of their feat and of their activities in this area of Chester County.

Mr. Babcock is a member of the Pennsylvania Society of Land Surveyors and serves as the chairman of the Monument Preservation Committee. He is a founding member of the Mason and Dixon Line Preservation Partnership. He has been involved with the recovery and location of the monuments marking the Mason and Dixon Line

Wine and Caramel pairings

Saturday & Sunday 12:00-5pm

This father's day weekend we are offering a selection of 5 wines for $5 3 of the wines will be paired with a sample of a gourmet caramel AND dad gets to take home a sample bag of the 3 caramels (while supplies last)

Solar Celebration Chardonnay 2013 - 100% sun, 0% oak

Arneis 2013  - an ancient variety grown in the Piemonte, home of Barolo. Delicate aromas and flavors of pears, with a hint of almonds, and a lingering finish. This will be paired with an anise caramel topped with dark chocolate blended with almond butter and sliced almonds which have been soaked in Kirch (cherry liqueur) before being roasted.

Riesling 2013 - this medium sweet wine, with the aroma of apricot, elderflower and honeysuckle, combines richness with a lingering finish. This wine is the perfect complement to an orange caramel topped with dark chocolate blended with hazelnut butter, orange zest and hazelnuts which have been soaked in Cointreau (orange liqueur) before being roasted

Vidal - From 34 year old vines in Lancaster County. Luscious and intense, its sweetness is derived from the sugar in the grapes at harvest. To balance the sweetness in this wine we have paired it with the bold flavor of an espresso caramel topped with dark chocolate blended with hazelnut butter and honeycomb and drizzled with white chocolate.

Sparkling Rosé - 100% Pinot Noir. Color obtained by brief skin contact. Finished Natural.

Contrary to every surmise and expectation, Harvey's Bridge has been reopened! 

If you are coming from Unionville, you may consider the route over Harvey's Bridge as an alternative to following 162 to Stargazers Road.



Posted 5/21/2015 8:29am by John Weygandt.

Harvey's Bridge has been closed for resurfacing.  Consequently, once again, the only access to Wheatland Drive and Stargazers Vineyard is down Youngs from Stargazers Road to Laurel Rd. You will see a "Road Closed Ahead" sign as you turn right onto Laurel, but fear not, the road is open to Wheatland Drive. You will also see "Laurel Road Detour" signs. I have no idea what PENNDOT is trying to indicate by those signs. Please ignore them.

To all you GPS aficionados out there: Do not under any circumstances attempt to come via Harveys Bridge Road.
