Started in 1975 by Doug Knapp and his partner Suzie with the purchase of an old chicken farm. Knapp opened for sales of wine in 1984. In 1992 Knapp added a restaurant, and in 1995 Knapp became the first winery on the East coast to operate an Alembic Pot Still for the production of Brandy. In the year 2000, Knapp was sold to the owners of Glenora Wine Cellars. Growth and exceptional product continues to be the focus.
