The Wineries and Vineyards Trail of
Sample the award-winning wines the region has to offer
With geography, climate and growing conditions that mirror those of the Bordeaux Region in France, southeastern Pennsylvania continues to emerge as a major force in America’s wine industry. In fact, Pennsylvania wines as a whole are making steady gains in quality, quantity and recognition.
The Commonwealth ranks seventh in the nation for number of wineries — more than 220 — and produces more than one million gallons of wine per year. Pennsylvania vintners have won awards at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, International Women’s Wine Competition, San Diego International Wine Competition, International Eastern Wine Competition, Florida State Fair International Wine Competition, Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and Consumer Wine Awards, proving Pennsylvania can craft wines worthy of any table.
Philadelphia and The Countryside is ideally suited for winemaking. The temperate climate, paired with gently rolling hills and large bodies of water, make for warmer soil that nurtures a long growing season. The soil itself is flecked with limestone and gravel — qualities that enhance the fertility of a range of grapes. This means wine lovers find many of their favorites around Philadelphia, and local winemakers point to the popularity and flavor of their Chardonnays, Chambourcins, Pinot Noirs, Cabernet Sauvignons and even sparkling wines.
On this trail, you’ll visit some of the best award-winning wineries and vineyards the Greater Philadelphia area has to offer. Hope you’re thirsty.
