A Guide To Events, Tastings & Wineries At An Historic U.S. Destination
One of the most historical cities in the United States may be best known for a famous Civil War battle, but things are much more civil these days.
In fact, Gettysburg, PA, is a place where you can go on scenic drives, walks or bike rides through its vast apple, peach, apricot and pear trees, spend a day at one of its many spas or play golf.
And drink wine.
Yes, there are wineries in Pennsylvania and Gettysburg, and with that comes wine events.
Every weekend, Hauser Estate Winery hosts “Hauser After Hours.” a party is a party featuring live acoustic music, good (cash only), and wines and cider by the glass or bottle. These events are free and take place among the rolling hills of the winery.
It also has a summer concert series, singles nights, ladies nights, Thirsty Thursdays and several other events.
The Adams Winery, one of the oldest wineries in Pennsylvania and voted Best Winery in Gettysburg, has home wine-making classes, dinners, concerts and even off-site festivals. It also has wine and cheese Sundays.
The Wine and Cheese Sundays pair a flight of three wines with Amish-made cheeses and artisan crackers. You select from one of four flights. The cost is $15 (plus tax) and no reservations are required. It takes place from 1-4 p.m.
