About Village Winery
We are pleased to offer a new selection of Elderberry products.
The farm structure which houses our tasting and barrel rooms adjoins our large, old bank barn that will be restored. A word about the barn — the barn was built using post and beam construction and mortise and tenon joinery. Some of the heart pine floorboards are 18” wide. From the barn cellar (in the back), you can see hand-hewn oak joists supporting the floor above, and the stone foundation and cellar walls which were put together using lime and sand mortar. The barn’s stone foundation is smaller than the barn structure you see above it. We believe that an older, smaller barn previously existed on this foundation, possibly burning down around the time of the Civil War; and that a larger barn was rebuilt over the original stone foundation, as you see it now.
A spring-fed creek runs year-round behind the barn and winery down towards Catoctin creek, which flows past the Mill in Waterford. There is also a natural spring which runs underneath the barn that has been piped down to feed into the creek.
