Susquehanna Heartland March 2015 Wine Trail—March Event

The Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail (SHWT) was founded in 2003 when five wineries located near 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.

We kick off our Wine Trail in March of every year. Tickets to this annual, month-long event 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.

Be sure to have your ticket stamped when visiting the 13 wineries, and once completed, tickets can be turned in for a chance at prize drawings!
