About The Brandywine Valley Wine Trail
Six years ago a small group of wineries in Chester County, PA, joined forces to create the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail in southeastern Pennsylvania. Today the region continues to grow in both acres of vineyards and numbers of wineries. Each winery has its own distinct personality for you to discover as you tour our vineyards, taste in our cellars, and picnic on our grounds.
Spanning scenic southeastern Pennsylvania between historic Philadelphia and the Amish countryside outside Lancaster, the eight wineries of the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail are located within an easy drive of one another (within a 50 mile radius).
All wineries are open year round for your enjoyment. So come visit our tasting rooms and learn more about the unique characteristics of Brandywine Valley Wine Country!
