There are many ways to enjoy a day at Effingham Manor.
Our grounds are the perfect backdrop for a day of memory making. Start with wine tasting of current samplings, then move to a bottle of your favorite. Sit in the 260 old Manor House, our winery building, next to our Koi Pond, or anywhere that fits your fancy.
Shall, guests decide to bring a picnic, we do ask that outside food stays outdoors. Available to purchase on site is a menu of “nibbles and bites”, as well as charcuterie boxes that are offered on the weekends (while supplies last). On select weekends, we will have a rotation of local food vendors providing lunch offerings for sale. Check Upcoming Events or our social media for the lineup and please help support the local vendors on your visit.

Open Saturdays and Sundays, the Manor House is a way to enjoy wine and history in one sitting. Downstairs we offer tastings, samplings and sales by the flight, glass or bottle. Take your wine to one of the tables on the porches, or adjourn upstairs to one of the five parlor rooms, such as the Game room with its appointed poker table and board games, or the Princess room with couches and a view of our terraced gardens.
Built-in 1767, the Manor House is the center of the property. Inside you’ll find much of its original framework. The moldings throughout the house are original, as is all the wood on the second floor.
