    Stone Crop Acres is a beautiful destination to experience locally crafted wines a stone’s throw from the vineyard.

    The winery is run by Noreen and Marc, and the couple grows and harvests every grape with love. The grapes are crushed and pressed on site before being crafted in their very own winery and aged either in stainless steel tanks or French Oak barrels.

    Stone Crop Acres introduced their wines in July of 2017 and since then have been gradually releasing more reds and new whites and rosé wines each season.

    Stroll through the vines with a glass of wine in hand and enjoy some tastings on the tasting room patio patio overlooking the Morrisburg-area vineyard.

    Tours and rentals are available by appointment.
