The Woodhall Wine Cellar farm dates to the mid-19th century and appears as the I. Bull House shown on the J.C. Sidney and P.J. Browne 1850 map of the county. It was owned in 1862 by Ambrose H. Bull and others. The 99-acre farm was then sold to John Miller, Sr. One of Miller’s sons, Stephen Miller, appears as the owner on the G.M. Hopkins Atlas of Baltimore County, in 1877. In 1901 the Miller family sold the farm to the Almony family. The 1918 Tax Ledger of Election District 7 listed Granderson Almony as the owner of a dwelling, 20 x 42 feet, 2 stories, a barn, 40 X 60 ft, along with six other outbuildings.
Subsequent owner's reported in the Baltimore County Landmark application that the tasting room is “fashioned from a late-1800’s carriage building and corn crib,” and that “much of the original wooden-pegged, mortise and tenon post and beams, and two ‘harness traces’… remain.” The structures is associated with 19th-century agricultural development in northern Baltimore County, and is a distinctive example of a 19th century vernacular farmstead.
