Fall has arrived a little late this year. We have finished the harvest and begun the wine trails here at the vineyard. For anyone not familiar with the wine trail season, we entertain guests who have purchased tickets through one of our local wine trail groups. Those guests have 2 or 3 weekends to complete their tours and tastings through 9-12 wineries that participate in each of the trail events. The next three weeks are the fall Cornucopia Quest for the Hershey/Harrisburg Wine Country Trail. For $20 each or $35 per couple, you can get a tasting from all of the 12 participating wineries and participate in the fall harvest themed activities. We have decided to mix up warm mulled cider and have our guests judge the pumpkins which have been decorated by our Lower Dauphin High School Art students.
The weekends in November (10-11 & 17,18) are our chance to participate in the Mason Dixon Wine Trail’s tour of Wine Just off the Vine. During this event, we will mix more of our spiced, mulled cider and serve it along with our wine tastings and some delicious home prepared soups. This year we plan to serve a Cab Franc French Onion Soup and a Chardonnay Chicken Corn Soup. We really enjoy meeting new people and showcasing our wines, ciders and the beauty of our vineyard to anyone who wants to purchase a ticket and stop in. The mulled cider has already been a big hit so if you want to try some, stop in and enjoy your wine trail experience.
