Rushland Ridge Vineyards
Ed Ullman and his father started honing their winegrowing skills at Kings Oak Vineyards in Huntingdon Valley in 1968 and the family is still continuing that traditionally crafted process today.
In 1986, Ed and his wife, Lisa, purchased Rushland Ridge Vineyards and started growing vines. The first planting was one acre of French-American Hybrid and Native American wine grapes. By 1991, their production enabled them to open their Pennslyvania limited winery.
The couple's philosophy is to make and offer quality estate-grown wines at a reasonable price so their customers can enjoy the fruits of their labor with any meal, at any occasion.
