The Brandywine Valley is a bona fide tourist destination for many reasons, among them, of course, being its museums and battlefield. However, wine is close to the top of that list as well, and the popular Brandywine Valley Wine Trail has garnered national attention.
If you haven’t partaken in the beauty of the Valley’s several wineries, March is a great time to make your visit. Every weekend throughout the month, each of the six wineries will be part of Barrels on the Brandywine. This annual celebration of wine allows visitors to enjoy tastings of the new, developing vintage wines straight from the barrels. You will also get to taste all of the wineries’ already popular, on the market wines as well.
The trail’s wineries are scattered around the beautiful, rolling hills of Chester County, Pennsylvania. On a beautiful spring day, driving on a winding road through breathtaking countryside to get to each winery is part of the fun. As the weather starts to slowly get warmer and the area thaws out from the brutal winter, the Barrels on the Brandywine event is a magnificent way to start the season off right.
The trail’s wineries are: Penns Woods Winery in Chadds Ford, Patone Cellars in Landenberg, Kreutz Creek Vineyards in West Grove, Paradocx Vineyard in Landenberg, Borderland Vineyard in Landenberg and Black Walnut Winery in Sadsburyville.
In order to be a part of this fantastic annual event, you must purchase a passport from either the trail’s website or from any of the six wineries on trail. Again, this event takes place every weekend in March. Come enjoy some fantastic wine at this popular event in the beautiful Brandywine Valley and there is a good chance that you will make it an annual visit as well.
