After 16 years in the tool business, Don thought that he would like to do something a little more healthful, thus began their affair with the grapes. Starting with an aborted effort to purchase a Lewistown Winery and enough knowledge to be dangerous, he converted his 1866 PA bank barn into a sales room and wine making facility and in 1981 planted three acres of grapes. The grape varieties are primarily French Hybrids i.e. Vidal, Seyval, Chelois, DeChaunac, Chambourcin with a few Vinifera varieties, Carmine, Chardonel, and Bianco. Although the soils are very good, the humid climates and cold weather limit the varieties that will thrive here. However, the grapes and fruit that round out Brookmere's menu are available from vineyards in other areas of Pennsylvania.

After 23 years in business, Don and Susan sold the business to Ed and Cheryl Glick. Cheryl was an employee for the Chapmans for 12 years prior to purchasing the business with her husband Ed, who was a former dairy farmer for 18 years. When a business opportunity arose, they decided to take a new adventure. Ed learned the wine making trade as he worked for the Chapmans. After 7 years the Glicks purchased the winery. Ed and Cheryl still maintain the same high standards of wine making as the Chapmans did with their friendly knowledgeable staff-Carolyn, Amanda, and daughter Alisha. With the help of their staff, the Glicks have a lot of changes going on for 2008. The 1866 Mansion will become a warm and inviting Bed and Breakfast. A pavilion is being built in the Vineyard to host weddings, receptions, and special events. Also, they plan to hold wine and Music festivals during the spring, summer, and fall months.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
