The Vineyard at Hershey
It took only a year for the team behind The Vineyard at Hershey to go from hatching their idea at a piano bar to purchasing 40 acres of farmland in 2009. Handcrafted by resident winemaker L. Paul Vezzetti II, the winery’s selection ranges from a subtle hint of strawberry in the Twisted Kiss red-and-white blend to darker notes of plum and spice in the Firefly, a stalwart red. Bartenders pour samples for visitors to savor inside the vineyard’s farmhouse tasting room, beside its 2-acre spring pond, or on a deck overlooking the hills of Dauphin County. Said deck is home to the winery’s summertime concert series, one of numerous events it hosts alongside year-round tastings and vineyard tours.
