NEPA’s Homegrown Wineries Celebrate a Proud Pennsylvania Tradition Nearly 350 Years in the Making

No matter where you go in Northeastern Pennsylvania, you’re never far from a local winery. All across the region, fertile mountainsides, sun-drenched valleys, and natural, stream-fed farmlands contribute to an ever-growing and strictly local wine scene. From NEPA’s Valley Communities to the lush Pocono Mountains to those rolling Endless Mountains, local wine is having its moment. And with the convenient DiscoverNEPA Wine Trail, we’re all about helping you join the party.

For generations, NEPA’s winemakers toiled away. They experimented with variety, aging and fermentation. Some earned their stripes through decades of experience. Some practiced with world renowned experts. As a result, from vine to bottle, from glass to glass, NEPA’s local wines continually hold their own in both national and international competitions.

A wine for every palate.

Throughout the last few decades, as local vineyards and wineries popped up all over the region so, too, did the wine tourist. The DiscoverNEPA Wine Trail brings you closer to more of these incredible stories. We cover over 40 local vineyards, wineries and tasting rooms.

Hop in the car, clear those palates and hit the road on the DiscoverNEPA Wine Trail.
