A Sip

We had an absolutely fabulous weekend along the Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail. Who knew central Pennsylvania grew such good grapes? Seriously, we tasted some really robust wines and experienced firsthand the love that goes into each bottle.

I plan to do full recaps on each of the seven wineries we visited. Until then, here is a “sip” of the fun we had.

We saw close to 20 horse-drawn buggies. Yes, at least half of the wineries we visited neighbor Amish communities.


We tasted wines in a converted barn.
