Vineyard at Hershey (written Mar 15, 2015)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 stars

Favorite Wine: Niagara

A winery outside of Hershey. Nice wines. I got a feeling that money was important the wine second. It was a busy day for them and I might not be fare. We visited 5 wineries and kept forgetting this one.

A boutique winery in Hershey. A very unique experience for me. A very personal tasting experience where you are greeted at least once by all the personal and seated at a table and enjoy a tasting at your own pace. Loved it. A must visit.
