Founded in 1859, Mount Pleasant is located in the Augusta Appellation, the first government-appointed wine-growing district in the United States. The original hand-dug cellars, completed in 1881, were built from wood and the abundant limestone in the area. Also on property is the “oven house” where bricks were made and used to build the foundations of the original winery buildings.
Situated on Mount Pleasant’s sprawling campus are the Crush Lounge, Appellation Café, hand carved cellars dating back to the mid 1800’s, the Tasting Room, and a beautiful event venue. Mount Pleasant hosts public pop-up live music events some weekends in season on the expansive patio overlooking the river valley. The campus is available for private events daily from a simple space rental of the Crush Lounge to a corporate event or wedding in the Terrace Ballroom.
