Berks County Wine Trail is warding off winter’s cold with our Winter Warmer Wine Tasting Weekend, January 18 and 19, 2020. Enjoy featured wines together with samples of hot soups, heavenly desserts, and other comfort-inspired pairings, at each of our 11 wine trail locations.
Take a self-guided tour of the Berks County area winter landscapes for this wine tasting event from noon until 5:00 both days. Winter Warmers is a free sampling event; no reservations or tickets needed for the featured pairing at each winery. Note, most wineries charge a tasting fee for their full wine list.
