Red Heifer Winery, Smithsburg

#22 of 42 in Wineries in Maryland
Must see · Winery / Vineyard · Food & Drink
Family owned and operated vineyard and winery on 4th generation owned farm. Located in Smithsburg, Maryland at an elevation of 1500 feet our grapes experience warm days and cool nights, perfect for excellent winemaking.

Curious about the name? Here's the story:

In the early 1940s our great-grandfather set out to purchase farmland in the fruit-growing region of Smithsburg, Maryland. During discussion of sale with the old farmer he noticed a single red heifer peacefully grazing. Our family farm was purchased that day along with that lone red heifer. Some say if not for the red heifer you would not be drinking this wine.

  • Beatiful little spot close to Waynesboro with great wine and great people. Had a really great tasting. Their dry whites are stellar. We visited 3 wineries in one day and Red Heifer was by far our favorite. Personable staff, not a bad attitude in sight. Gorgeous scenery. I could sit in their Adirondack chairs and chat for hours. Also, they have dogs!!! And goat yoga!! Nothing pretentious here. Just beauty, community, and great wine!!!
  • This is a great place. The staff are extremely nice, the location is beautiful and they have great live music. The wine is fantastic and the overall experience is fun. Highly recommend.
