In 2008, four friends enjoyed freely-flowing wine and great conversation at a local piano bar. As the conversation continued, the winemaker of the group made a statement as bold as the Merlot being enjoyed that evening- that Pennsylvania is capable of making a world class wine and that he could handcraft wines that would be among the best in the region. It didn’t take long for that statement to be turned into a challenge. The winemaker lived up to his bold statement, and then some.
In 2009, The Vineyard at Hershey went from a fun idea at a piano bar amongst friends, to the planting of vines on a 40 acre historical farm with gorgeous views and a beautiful natural springs pond. Our philosophy is that enjoying a bottle of wine is meant to be a shared experience with family and friends, just as the four friends did at that local piano bar.
From whimsical and refreshing whites to bold and flavorful reds, and everything in between, The Vineyard at Hershey handcrafts every bottle of wine for the enjoyment of new and the most experienced of palates. We trust you will taste the difference.
