When you think of Lancaster County do you think “WINERIES”? If not, there’s an upcoming event that may change your perspective.
“Tour de Tanks” has been described as Pennsylvania’s ultimate wine experience! Participants celebrate the arrival of new vintages with special tank and barrel tastings every Saturday and Sunday in March 2010. You’ll meet fellow wine enthusiasts, chat with winemakers and savor hand-selected food and wine pairings in a relaxing atmosphere. Plus, to ensure you’re able to take full advantage of the wine tour, the Historic Smithton Inn can arrange a car and driver for small groups, or a bus for large groups, to bring you safely from winery to winery and then back to the Inn.
There are 14 wineries participating in the Tour de Tanks Wine Trail, who will welcome you EVERY Saturday and Sunday in March from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for special tank and barrel tastings of vintages before they are bottled. NEW for Tour de Tanks 2010, receive a souvenir UnCork York Wine Glass to take along as you travel the trail.
Tickets are $20 and valid all 4 weekends in March at 14 wineries. Visit as many wineries along the Wine Trail as you like, as many times as you please. Tickets are available online and can also be purchased at participating wineries.
