Welcome to Blackledge

We are a Pennsylvania licensed, privately funded research winery. What we make here is project driven, meaning we're often working with museum archives and historic sites to bring to life some amazing traditional recipes that had been lost to time. The attention to detail required by this process makes small batch production a necessity, and because of this we typically make only a few hundred gallons each year, with much of it being pre-sold.

Looking to purchase bottles? Visit the Christmas City Spirits bottle sales room inside Bethlehem's historic 1758 Sun Inn. There you'll find a selection of Blackledge cider, wine and mead whenever it's available.
