Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail continues in March: The Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail (SHWT) was founded in 2003 when five wineries located near where the Susquehanna River and the Juniata River tributaries joined together to market their unique region of Pennsylvania. The SHWT has grown to included 13 wineries. As grape growers and wine makers, the SHWT benefits from the unique soil and climate of this region which produces a variety of award-winning wines. Our region offers a slice of Americana with its small town atmosphere and affinity for local business promotion. Enjoy a long weekend or a short day trip by jumping from winery to winery, all while shopping in between to explore local restaurants and shops. Tickets to this annual, month-long event in March are $20 per person and can be purchased at any of the participating wineries. Wineries provide wine tastings daily, and some provide food and entertainment on the weekends. There are also opportunities to win prizes. Click on the link above to learn more.
