Various Varietals Flourish at Glen Mills’ Grace Winery, Not Far From Meetinghouse

June 19, 2014

Sweetwater Farm's idyllic stone homestead was built in 1734. Today, the beautiful farmhouse no longer serves as a home, but as a bed and breakfast. As its owners learned the ins and outs of operating a B&B, they realized they weren't utilizing some of the 50-acre lot's most valuable space: its historic barn. That all changed when they decided to convert the 1750s-era barn into Grace Winery.

It took two years to renovate the rustic barn, but the community was willing to wait patiently for the now-popular winery. In addition to the barn, which holds tastings on Friday nights and Saturday and Sunday afternoons, the winery claims five acres of the farm. That's all wine growers need to cultivate more than 9,000 vines that will bear the fruit for pinot gris, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, vidal blanc, chardonnay, petit verdot, and cabernet Franc. Grace Winery delivers 15,000 cases of wine every year to Glen Mills and other surrounding areas. It's all located just a stone's throw from Meetinghouse.
