Owner Donald Hoffman, a 30-year Navy veteran and nuclear engineer, created the brand, Atomic Dog Wines, after purchasing Jack’s Hard Cider in 2018. Atomic Dog Wines were released in August 2020. These wines combine Donald’s lifelong passions of nuclear science and canine rescue. The Atomic Dog, Nicolas, is one of five dogs that have been given a new lease on life by Donald.
Each of our wines is named for the nuclear industry to which Donald has dedicated his life. In order to create our balanced wines, we used grapes from our local region as well as some of the best grapes the west coast has to offer. Our five unique blends are as electrifying as atomic energy: Alpha Red, Infra Red, Fusion, Ultra Violet, & Gamma White.
Atomic Dog Wines are available at Jack’s Cider House and the Mela Kitchen which are located at 1865 Gettysburg Village Drive, in historic Gettysburg. They can also be found at online and at Jack’s Hard Cider Tap room, located at 1863 Gettysburg Village Drive.
