I’m pleased to announce that I’ve launched a new website design for The Vineyard at Hershey. The Vineyard at Hershey is one of the newer wineries here in Central, PA but don’t let that fool you. These guys turn out some amazing wine.
The project started in September when I learned they were looking for someone to revamp their web presence. They wanted site visitors to see that they were a fun destination for wine tasting and to tell their story. I had previously visited The Vineyard at Hershey on a few wine tasting trips before and always had a fun time. So after a few emails and a meeting, we kicked off the project.
Attending their Merlot Release Party gave me a chance to capture some photography to be used on the website. This event also gave them more press via the local news outlet PennLive.com. The owners do a great job with their social media efforts via Twitter and Facebook already, so a redesign of their website really rounds off their online presence. One interesting fact is that they turn to their Social Media audience to name their wines. That’s a good reason to follow The Vineyard at Hershey. Stop in and sample some of their wines, you won’t be disappointed. Cheers!
The Vineyard at Hershey hosted a Merlot Release Party to unveil their new Merlot. I arrived around noon to begin photographing the event and stayed until everyone had gone home. More photos can be found over on my Flickr set.
This is one of the newer wineries in the Harrisburg area but don’t let that fool you. Their wine is fantastic and their enthusiasm shows that they enjoy what they do. Their tasting room is open Fridays from 1PM to 6PM, Saturday and Sunday from 11AM – 6PM. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
