December 2015


In December, we are celebrating the Art of Giving, where wineries are including a wide variety of artisan and craft events to inspire the gift-giving passion in all of us. Each of the  8 listed wineries are including gift giving events, some with so many that you should really check out their websites to get more detailed information. For all of the 13 wineries on the trail, there is always the gift of wine, and we encourage you to visit and wine taste at each of our locations throughout Chester County.

Wishing you the very best for this holiday season! Cheers!
