“That Pennsylvanian wine is delicious!” said nobody ever. Or at least that’s been the stereotype.
Until now.

Say what you will about the quality of PA wine (we certainly do), but you can’t argue that the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail doesn’t know how to throw a good party for those of an oenophilic bent. Especially those of you hardcore grape geeks who thrill to things like cellar tours and tasting new local wines.
Every weekend in March, the seven wineries of the trail open their cellars (and tasting rooms) for the public to sip the latest vintage straight from the barrels, buckets and bottles. $30 buys you a passport to visit (and drink at) each of the wineries once between March 3 and April 1.
A few wineries do something a little special. Twin Brook Winery, for example, is serving its famous gumbo. And Paradocx is pouring wine from cans–because that’s just classy.
