Have a grape stompin' good time and experience the sights and smells of harvest as the wineries of the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail celebrate the 2014 vintage! You’ll find grapes galore as the vineyards commence harvest activities. Enjoy pastoral settings for picnicking, live music to "sit n’ sip" or dance by, hayrides through the vineyards, BBQs, wine tastings, tours, and the opportunity to learn about the region where Pennsylvania’s most stellar wines are being grown. 

Purchase a passport and visit all six of our wineries.  Passports are $15 and include a Brandywine Valley Wine Trail glass and tastings at all six of our member wineries during our Harvest Festival Weekends. Use your passport any day or combination of days during the Harvest Festival.  

**Each winery has its own group visitation policy, so please contact our wineries individually if you plan on visiting as a group.  Reservations may be required.**

This October, we're all about supporting our local breast cancer charities:  the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition and Living Beyond Breast Cancer.  Join us for "Think Pink, Drink Pink" during the entire month.  For each purchase of selected wines, $1 per bottle will be donated to our breast cancer charities.  


OCTOBER 4:  STOMP FOR A CURE!  All of the members of the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail will be offering grape stomping as a kick-off to Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Funds raised by the stomp will be given to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition and Living Beyond Breast Cancer.  To stomp, provide a minimum $5 donation per person.  Stomps will be scheduled at all vineyards on Saturday, October 4.  Call your preferred stomping location for times, to sign up and more details.
