Home to a rousing lineup of award-winning wines, Sharrott Winery's passionate staff helps make the nuanced art of drinking wine more easily accessible. Located on 35 rolling acres, the winery and vineyard crafts a host of varietals from start to finish—tending to rows of grapes and fermenting the juices at their on-site facility. Samples of nectars such as the silver medal-wearing dry riesling or the trio, a grape trifecta that results in smooth notes of vanilla, lilac, and fresh cherries, are available inside the spacious tasting room, which overlooks the vineyard so grapes can mature before guests' very eyes.
Joe and Vickie, the owners of Blue Mountain Vineyards & Cellars, are pinot pioneers. Beginning with a 5-acre experiment in 1986, they discovered that the soil of the Lehigh Valley does a fine impression of French terrain, making it suitable for growing the grapes of cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, and other European varietals. Since then, they've expanded to a 50-acre plot, where they now produce wines that have won awards from the Fingerlake International Wine Competition and Appellation America.
Panoramic views of the Blue Mountains overlook scenic terraces at the vineyards, where grapes spring from soil that soldiers roamed during the Revolutionary War. Tastings, concerts, and other events fill the winery's glass-flanked deck, from wine-and-chocolate pairings to wine-and-more-wine pairings. Many of these gatherings spill out onto a patio surrounded by tranquil ponds. Visitors can admire the vines during tours and adopt their favorites to preserve the vines' flavorful histories.

As it's been chronicled on their blog, the story of Auburn Road Vineyards is a long, meandering one. Founded by wine connoisseurs who eventually evolved into wine creators themselves, the secluded countryside parcel is home to rows of tangling vines, where grapes grow heavy and lush before transforming into complex vintages. At The Enoteca—the on-site wine bar—visitors converge over bottles of wine and shareable plates, such as wood-fired pizzas on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Also, on Fridays Auburn Roads offers a 5 course wine pairing dinner called "What's for Dinner" Friday.

What's in a name? At Paradocx Vineyard, it's the owners' day jobs. The four winery owners are physicians, which makes the name Paradocx a play on words: pair of docs. The doctors and their families established the Landenberg vineyard in 2003, where they and their staff tend to more than 100 acres of land, which produce high-quality grapes for their selection of red, white, and sweet wines. Read on to learn about a few:
Whitewash: This blend of white-grape varieties creates an aromatic medium-bodied wine whose robust stone-fruit and citrus flavors are accented by spicy notes.
Op-port-une: A combination of cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, and petit verdot grapes, this rich and sweet port-style wine pairs well with fruit and dark chocolate.
Traminette: This award-winning pale-gold wine features scents of honey, honeysuckle, fruit, jasmine, and spices and a dry, acidic taste with a crisp, floral finish.
Merlot: The vineyard's ruby-hued merlot is medium- to full-bodied with an intense berry taste complemented by toasty notes, which is a result of its oak aging.
