In 2000, the 300 acre private farm, now known as Running Hare Vineyard, was purchased by Mike Scarborough.
While it was originally purchased as a hunting property, Mr. Scarborough soon realized the sandy, dry soil was the ideal conditions for growing grapes! Having lived in France as a child, his love of wine had always been a life long passion. He decided to pursue winemaking as a hobby and planted 100 vines in 2002. The rest as they say is history! Since then, Mike and Barbara Scarborough have added several varietals of grapes and the vineyard has expanded from the initial 100 vines to approximately 5,000 vines or an 8 acre vineyard.
It was during harvest in the fall of 2007, that the decision to become a commercial operation was made. Since then, the winery has expanded from a 550 gallon tank capacity to a 12,772 gallon tank capacity and has produced over 100,000 bottles of wine to date.
Since opening its magnificent gates in August 2008, the winery has produced numerous award winning wines in both regional and international wine competitions.
Running Hare Vineyard wines can be purchased either directly at the vineyard or at your favorite retail store.
Mike and Barb Scarborough wanted their customers to have a unique experience when visiting their winery. So rather than have the tasting room inside, they built a covered pavilion area with plenty of tables, chairs and umbrellas in the middle of the vineyard. There, visitors can sample and purchase their favorite wines and are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch. The vineyard also has live music every Sunday!
On April 10, 2010 Running Hare Vineyard celebrated the grand opening of its new 8,400 sq. ft Tuscan styled events building for weddings, corporate retreats and special events.
