Hillsboro Road Project.  We will be open for business during the Hillsboro Road Project and you will be able to reach us directly using route 9 (Charles Town Pike) or by using local or regional detours around Hillsboro.  We will update this page as the Hillsboro Road Project develops.  

The Town of Hillsboro, east of us, will undertake a road construction project beginning in March 2020.  The project is expected to substantially complete in May 2021.   

If you are located North or West of the Town of Hillsboro (in WV, MD, VA, or PA), you are not affected by the Hillsboro road project and can reach us directly using route 9.  

If you are located East of the Town of Hillsboro and normally use route 9 heading West to reach us, you will be able to reach us directly during our normal operating hours (Friday-Sunday) using route 9 through the Town of Hillsboro on most Fridays-Sundays.  But . . .  

For brief periods during the Hillsboro Road Project (up to 60 non-consecutive days), route 9 in the Town Hillsboro may be closed to traffic.  Closures are expected in November and December 2020 and in April 2021. During these periods, you can reach us using a local detour or a regional detour around the town.  

The local detour from route 9 (heading West) is:  left turn onto Hillsboro Road; right turn at roundabout onto Allder School Lane; right turn onto Woodgrove Road; left turn onto Cider Mill Road; left turn back onto route 9 and proceed to our farm winery on route 9.

The regional detour from route 7 bypass (Harry Byrd Highway, heading West) is:  right exit from route 7 bypass onto Loudoun Street (also called business route 7); right turn onto Main Street, which becomes Woodgrove Road; stay on Woodgrove Road until Cider Mill Road; left turn onto Cider Mill Road; left turn back onto route 9 and proceed to our farm winery on route 9.
