Uncork A Taste of Spring! Berks County Wine Trail New Release Weekend Event

by Berks County Wine Trail

Apr 19, 2019

(Eastern Pennsylvania) Join the Berks County Wine Trail in welcoming the arrival of Springtime to our region with a FREE wine tasting event! Together, we’ll Uncork A Taste of Spring! at each of eleven area wineries with new release wines that are as fresh as the new season. Some wineries have planned sample pairings with their tasting of the new vintages, but the stars of this event are the wines themselves.

Come and enjoy new wines, bursting with flavor, on Saturday April 27th and Sunday April 28th, noon to 5 PM both days.  No tickets or reservations are needed for sampling the featured wine at each location. Most wineries charge a tasting fee for their full wine menu. This promises to be an event weekend filled with the spirited, carefree Tastes of Spring on the Berks County Wine Trail!

Check this listing of the featured wines at our wine trail locations:

Setter Ridge – Naturally sweet Late Harvest Pinot Gris Reserve served with Apple Cinnamon cake.

Weathered – A spicy snack mix compliments 2017 Traminette, 15% off during the Taste of Spring event!

This event also marks the Berks County Wine Trail’s 15-year anniversary weekend, making this a special celebration of Spring. Featured wines at each of the eleven trail wineries will be 15% off during the Taste of Spring event! In 2004, eight wineries banded together, forming the Berks County Wine Trail. We’ve added some new names and faces since then, but now, fifteen years later, the shared purpose of the member wineries making up the trail hasn’t changed. We are here to promote awareness of the diverse assortment of exceptional wines being made right here in our Berks County back yard! The eleven Berks County Wine Trail member wineries are proud partners with the Pennsylvania Winery Association.
