The Vineyard at Hershey Merlot Release Party

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.
