A New Wine Trail – Hershey Keeps Getting Better

hershey b and b wine basket

There were less than 50 wineries in Pennsylvania 20 years ago. Today there are more than 150, and some of the best are literally just minutes from our Hershey Bed and Breakfast.

We are so excited about new wine trail that has just been created. It showcases 12 Central Pennsylvania Wineries. Each of the wineries is within a 45-minute drive from the center of Harrisburg or Hershey and we are perfectly located right in the middle of it all. A beautiful new web site “Hershey Harrisburg Wine Country” provides detailed information and a map.

We’re highlighting the four that are moments away but all 12 are certainly worth a visit during your stay at our romantic getaway in Hershey. We’ll be happy to help you plan your route.
