  • Blue Mountain Vineyards & Cellars
    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.

  • The Colony Meadery
    When Michael Manning made his first batch of home brew in 2001, he thought he had found his calling. Beer, however, turned out to be a stepping stone toward his ultimate beverage of choice?mead. In 2009, using a recipe the American Homebrewers Association published for Mead Day, he concocted his first batch of the honey-wine. Eventually, his personal recipe earned a Best of Show at 2011?s Valhalla mead competition. These days, he uses modern tools and his mastery of fermentation to craft The Colony Meadery?s many styles of mead, which range from strawberry- and kiwi-flavored versions to hoppy, IPA-style variations. The meads are available to sample at The Colony?s in-house tasting room, as well as various taverns throughout the state.

  • Courtyard Winery
    Sweet and dry: the two poles of wine flavor that tend to divide drinkers. Courtyard Winery's winemakers didn't want to leave anyone out, so they launched two separate wine labels under their umbrella. Courtyard's own 125 acres of vineyards, focusing on distinctive, dryer flavors. Barjo Bons, on the other hand, specializes in sweet, bringing out the fruit flavors in locally grown grapes. Both are available in the winery's tasting room, though like siblings sharing a backseat on a road trip, each has it's own area of the space.

  • Naylor Wine Cellars
    Even before Richard Naylor and his wife, Audrey, founded their winery in 1978, the Naylor family had been fascinated by the winemaking process. What began as a backyard vine-growing experiment first transitioned into an barrel-producing operation in a potato cellar. It then blossomed into today's idyllic Pennsylvania winery, full of vineyards, rows of wooden barrels, and a staff of friendly wine experts. Richard and his family lead groups through tours of the picturesque estate, imparting their wisdom about the fine varietals grown there, such as cabernet franc or chambourcin. Guests can sip fine vino during regular festivals and front-porch tastings, or they can experience live bands, competitive wine-tasting events, and even weddings in the welcoming, rustic setting of the Pavilion.

  • Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire
    It's not every day that you get to take your picture with the World's Strongest Viking, and it's even rarer still to fight alongside him in battle. But you can do both at the Philadelphia Renaissance Faire. Icelander Haf??r J?l?us Bj?rnsson?who plays "The Mountain" on HBO's Game of Thrones and who recently was named the World's Strongest Viking?is Philadelphia Renaissance Faire's King Thor. Guests can simply pose alongside the 6-foot, 9-inch, 400-pound strongman or be cast as a viking in Thor's horde and fight alongside him in a battle preserved for eternity on a DVD, if not in a ballad sung by a wandering minstrel. If they're feeling particularly brave, they can opt to workout alongside him before the faire starts in the morning. In addition to giving people the chance to interact with Thor, the Philadelphia Renaissance Faire entertains with period-appropriate entertainment, food, drinks, and fun. Festival highlights include performances by dancers, comedians, clowns, and musicians.

  • Sweetwater Farm
    Built in 1750, the old bank barn on the Sweetwater Farm bed-and-breakfast property boasted a diverse resumé before it fell into disrepair more than two centuries later; it held malting barley for distilled spirits, sheltered herds of livestock, and even hosted a party or two. After a two-year renovation completed in 2010, the barn came out of retirement to fulfill its new purpose: hosting french-oak barrels and stainless-steel fermentation tanks—custom-made in South Africa—that quietly ferment and age small-batch wines from the property's 5-acre vineyard. Grace Winery's European-origin varietals, grown on California vines that were transplanted by hand and carrier pigeon, include merlot, pinot gris, and petit verdot. Winemaker Sean Kramer combines new technology with tried-and-true tradition to create wines such as the bright 2010 rosé, which was served at the brunch the day after Prince Albert of Monaco’s wedding. His other wines include the 2010 chardonnay reserve, aged for 14 months in french oak that imbues it with dark caramel and butterscotch flavors, and the crisp 2011 pinot gris, whose light honeysuckle aromas lead to delicate hints of citrus and melon.
