PA Vineyards, Wineries and Tastings!

I have a bit of a backlog of posts due to this past exciting week, so I wanted to post everything in order, so please bear with me! Last Friday (before the proposal) boyf and I spent the weekend in Hershey, PA. We got up there early on Friday afternoon and didn’t really know what to do with our time. Luckily, after some exploration with the Hotel’s brochure wall, we decided to do a few wine tours!

There were a few wineries in the area, and we wanted to hit whatever we could before everything closed on Friday night. We started off at Nissley Vineyards

We did a little tour around the estate and it was really cool. Check out the vineyards and the grapes on the vine!!

After a little tour, it was time for some tasting!

September 2009 017 September 2009 018

We were given a list of all the wines available and got to pick 6 each to taste for free! You got to love that!

After our wine tasting and wine purchasing (i think we got 2 bottles) we went outside and walked around the grounds for a bit.

Jackson enjoyed rolling around in the field.

After our fabulous tasting and tour at Nissley, we headed on to the next stop on our wine route! Jackson enjoyed the ride on boyfs lap!

We enjoyed some awesome scenery.

Next stop, Waltz Vineyards!

Waltz Vineyard was a lot newer than Nissley. They have only been around for about a year, but they had a really good selection.

September 2009 038

We tasted another 6 wines here. They were all really good, especially the reds. We ended up purchasing another bottle!

They had some great views inside the winery.

Barrels of wine!

The grapes here were totally different color than at Nissley!

After Waltz, we hit the road and headed towards our next and final wine destination.

Finally we hit up Cullari Vineyards and Winery

Cullari had some fun decor.

And here is where the tasting magic happened.

September 2009 062

This was another fabulous tasting! Each winery had such different types of wine with different tastes! They were all so good. I love going around to all sorts of different wineries! It was a blast!

September 2009 063

We got another 3 bottles from Cullari (1 is a gift!), so I think that means we got 6 total (5 for us!). Lots of wine drinking in our future!

Have you ever been on a wine tour? Tell me where!

What is your favorite wine? I used to ONLY drink white (specifically pinot grigio) but lately i have been on a serious pinot noir kick! Loving it!! Share some wine love!

    Love the boots.

    I've always wanted to go to a vineyard. I've been wine tasting, but not out to the fields.

    Great post Leslie!
    Have had Nissley, but not the others – I will have to venture out farther toward Hershey one day!
    My FAV winery (I hung out there so often, I started working there too!) is Twin Brook Winery in Gap, PA. You MUST do the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail if you have not already – and make us one of your stops!
