"I think it's wonderful," says Edna Naylor, a Smithsburg resident. "I can hardly wait for it to get done."
Naylor says she enjoys wine and it's something she shares with her family. Now they've taken their love for the vines and are bottling it up.
Red Heifer Winery started as an idea by Kevin Ford, Naylor's grandson, which has now expanded and opened in their backyard in Smithsburg. Him and his wife work together to pick the names and flavor for each drink.
"It feels awesome," says Yvonne Ford. "I think really the best part is working with his grandmother and seeing her come over and be apart of this."
The name Red Heifer is also apart of the family's past.
"My father-in-law was talking to the gentleman who owned the farm about purchasing it," says Naylor. "He saw this heifer in the field and said if you throw that heifer in the field you got a deal."
And while that red heifer is long gone, the family has stayed on the property since the 1940s. They say the winery is "meant to be" with the perfect weather and location for growing grapes.
"This area can practically grow anything short of a really warm dry climate such as California and in comparison we can do much like the Bordeaux region of France," says Ford.
The winery is open at 11 a.m. on Sunday. It is located on 24606 Raven Rock Road.
