Central Pennsylvania Wine Tour
The weekend before the super storm Sandy hit the area we traveled around the Central Pennsylvania area for a wine tour! The Hershey Harrisburg Wine Country hosted a tour to promote the wine industry in the area. It's an industry that I didn't even know was so big around us! The tour allowed you to tour and taste wines from 10 different wineries. We made it to four with Cassel Vineyards being a favorite of the group. The vineyards grows 80% of the grapes they use for their wines. Quite impressive! I feel like I need to continue my exploration of Pennsylvania wineries! Annnnnnnd also continue drinking wine. Of all kinds.
Side note on Pennsylvania. A friend pointed this out to me and I found it funny. When people ask Pennsylvanians where we are from most of us say PA, not Pennsylvania. I know I do this and even on here I tend to just write PA. Is this common with other states too? Maybe it's a Central PA thing?
