Sometimes a night out on the town isn’t on the town at all. It’s in the country. Wine Country. Summer is for sipping. And singing. It’s for enjoying the view. And the company. Date night, girls night or any night, what you find in the vineyards and tasting rooms of Hershey Harrisburg Wine Country is more than just good wine – it’s good times and great entertainment.
Winemakers lean on south central Pennsylvania’s rich agricultural history and turn out locally-produced traditional flavors, plus twists on whites, reds, blends and ciders. Seasonal releases keep the wine lists fun, fresh and exciting. You don't have to travel across the country for great wine, beautiful vistas and special events. It's all right here!
The region’s winery scene is a complimentary mix of long-standing legacies and fresh young faces. For years, Nissley Winery in Bainbridge, Lancaster County has set the gold standard for summer entertainment with its weekly “Music in the Vineyards” Lawn Concert Series. Crowds file in early with coolers (outside beer is OK but only Nissley wine is allowed on the property) and candelabras. Wineries across the Wine Country map are following suit with a wide range of acts on weeknights and weekends alike.
The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey in Middletown features “Decked Out Live” every Friday night. Have you been to a V&B at Hershey release party? Helicopters and DeLoreans deliver the latest vintages and the parties by the pond last all day. Spring Gate Winery just outside of Harrisburg City is in the game each weekend with live music for Sunday Brunch, and someone is at the mic nearly every night of operation. (Spring Gate is actually kid-friendly for many events. They have Alpacas!!!)
The list of winery special events and celebrations goes on! Plan a trip to Hershey Harrisburg Wine Country, and you'll be toasting to sweet sounds and summer nights!
