Bird Song Winery

Bird Song Winery Bird Song Winery Inc. was founded in 1995 by John Crane on 52 acres of picturesque Sullivan County countryside just outside the little town of Dushore. "We believe in the quality of our wine, and our 'down home' atmosphere. All of our wines are produced from Pennsylvania grapes. Since 1995 we have been working to develop a wine growing region in the unique microclimate of the Endless Mountains using varities adaptable to a short, cold growing season. Some of our grapevines could withstand up to 47 degrees below zero."The family steeps itself in vintner tradition and culture extending back 7,000 years, particularly the concept of 'Terrior.' Terrior basically means a wine's style, taste and flavor reflect the climate and minerals in the soil as components of its flavor. Flavors are unique to grape varieties and specific place. Although vintners have farmed in much the same way as the Crane family since before recorded history, some of the monitoring techniques they use are cutting edge technology. John installed a weather station that downloads temperature highs and lows, changes in humidity and tracks both disease and insect pressures on his vineyards. "It's state of the art. It takes readings every half hour all through the growing season. We download periodically to study trends."
