Back in 2010, Andrea moved to this area from Georgia and started working at Penns Woods Winery. After a year of settling in, she knew she was ready for a furry companion. She did her research and found an organization in Wilmington, DE. She chose Harper just after seeing one picture and her mind and heart were set. It was not until she got Harper that she found out Harper was also from Georgia!! It was clear, it was a match made in heaven. Harper has worked at PWW since 2012 and is a loyal staff member and mighty asset to the Penns Woods team. Harper's official title is "Pest Manager" as she assists in the vineyard by overseeing all operations and pest management. When Harper first visited the Tasting Room, she was timid and shy. It only took her a few years to come into herself. The vineyard gave her the opportunity to come out of her shell and she has made a beautiful mark on the business ever since. Many other vineyards have vineyard dogs that have been a vital part to their operation, but we wholeheartedly feel we are the luckiest of them all. Harper is just as hard-working, passionate, and caring as the rest of the Penns Woods team, and we owe a lot of our success to this amazing girl. The vineyard would not be the same without her! Check out more about our favorite staff member below!
"Harper is always aware of everything that's going on at the vineyard and is constantly on the lookout for intruders (groundhogs, deers, etc.) She makes everyone working in the vineyard feel at home, always passing by them throughout the day to get a little attention.
In my opinion, and from most people that know Harper, she has changed so much over the years since her start working in the vineyard and tasting room. She started out shy and timid, but has blossomed into such a loving, loyal companion and gained her nickname "Terminator" from Gino.
The vineyard has truly become Harper's home. She and I have shared many great moments there through rain, snow, heat, severe winds and extremely cold temperatures. Through it all, she always stays by my side and never gives up! " -Davide
