Our Story

​Jan Zell Wines is owned and operated by Arnie and Laura Jansen.  The winery name, Jan Zell Wines, originates from combining Arnie's last name (Jansen) and Laura's maiden name (Zeller). Our tasting room is located at 251 Grant Street, Chambersburg, PA 17201.

Opening 4 years ago with 8 wines, the winery now offers around 20 wines and rotating varieties of hard apple cider.  The winery offers tastings, wine by the glass and/or bottle, glasses of cider or growler fills, and PA crafted beer by the can or bottle.  The tasting room is a food friendly environment.  Feel free to bring your picnic basket and snacks while stopping in for a tasting, a glass, or bottle.  Indoor and outdoor seating is available.  Some snacks are available on-site.  

Monthly there are Plant & Sip Nights, Paint & Sip Nights, and Trivia.  Occasional there is live music.  The winery space was expanded and remodeled in the fall of 2018.  Space is now available for parties of up to 60 while also having space for walk in customers to sit and enjoy themselves.

We support several fundraising initiatives with our primary fundraising efforts focused on the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter and their efforts to save animals.


We host a  Summer Chili Classic (Chili Competition) and our Fall Booterfest, featuring several local bands and food trucks.

​We welcome you to come out to relax and unwind with us.  Cheers!
