Cullari Vineyards is the first and only winery in the Hersey, Pennsylvania area. Run by a couple with Italian heritage, the wines are made with respect to traditional practices. Grapes used in production include Native American (present pre-Colombus), French-American hybrid, and vinifera.
Fitting with the area, one of Cullari's most popular wines is an award-winning Coco Nostra chocolate wine. This winery is one of very few in Pennsylvania to produce zinfandel, which is its single largest varietal. In total , Cullari makes more than 30 varietals including dry, sweet and semi-sweet, so there is something to suit every taste.
The vineyards are set against the rolling hills between Lancaster and Harrisburg, while the cozy tasting room offers sips of some of the winery's most unique wines, which are only available in store.
Located just outside of central Hershey, get to the winery by taking Route 422 East (Chocolate Ave) one mile past the Hershey Chocolate factory. Though there is no entry fee, there is a small tasting fee of $5. Visitors are free to bring in their own food and snacks.
