Are you ready for Spring? I sure am! Things really heat up in March along Pennsylvania’s wine trails. Get your wine carrier out and hit the road with The Pennsylvania Wanderer. I’ll be on the road every weekend in March visiting some of the special events and tasting some great wine.
Welcome Spring to Central Pennsylvania with the 2009 Tour de Tanks wine tasting event on the UnCork York Wine Trail. Every weekend in March, the wineries of the UnCork York Wine Trail invite you to enjoy your first taste of the new year’s vintages straight from the barrels and tanks. You’ll also have the opportunity to talk to the winemakers and learn more about the wines and how they’re made. The event begins on February 28th and continues every Saturday and Sunday through March 29th. The wineries will be open on Saturdays from noon to 5:00 and Sundays from 1:00 to 5:00. Admission to the event is only $15.00 and your ticked is good for all five weekends. You’ll also receive 10% off your wine purchases and stamps that make you eligible to win UnCork York Wine Trail prizes.
The Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail proudly presents March Madness, 2009, “A Ticket to Good Taste and Adventure”. Visit any of the six wineries on the trail and purchase your ticket to great food and wine. Each weekend, each of the wineries will present a spectacular food and wine pairing. The wineries will be offering tours and special tastings; and some will offer live entertainment. Each winery will stamp your ticket and once you’ve visited all six, your ticket stub will be entered in a special drawing that could win you a romantic night at a bed and breakfast or a meal at one of the local restaurants. In addition you will receive a complimentary gift at each winery. Tickets are only $18 per person or $30 per couple. Please check out the Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail for much more information.
Last year I spend March weekends on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail at their March Madness events. Alas when I checked their website this morning, I learned that this year’s event is completely sold out. I’d strongly recommend you plan ahead and enjoy March Madness on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail in 2010.
March weekends mean Barrels on the Brandywine along the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail. Your $25 ticket entitles you to be among the first to enjoy tastings of the wineries’ 2008 vintages. The wineries also plan special events like music and art shows, barbecues and barrel tastings just for you. As a special gift, you’ll receive a Brandywine Valley Wine Trail logo glass with your ticket. Learn about the wine trail’s special March events here.
I love March along Pennsylvania’s wine trails. The only problem is that there isn’t enough time to get to every one of these great events. Oh well, there’s always next year. I hope you decide to head out to some of these March events. If you do, please tell them that the Pennsylvania Wanderer sent you.
