Organic wine lovers who live in the Pennsylvania area will have a chance to participate in tastings geared to their special lifestyle needs.


The state’s annual Wine Week kicks off today with the first-ever Wine Festival in Hershey, followed by the Sixth Annual Pittsburgh Wine Festival tomorrow and the Seventh Annual Philadelphia Wine Festival on Saturday.

“Regular attendees know that each year the festivals are bigger and more exciting than the year before,” says Patrick “P.J.” Stapleton III, chairman of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, the events’ sponsor. “This year is no exception. With more than 200 wineries participating, we have the largest, most diverse group of wines ever represented at Wine Week.”

The week includes a series of wine seminars, auctions and dinners, highlighted by a grand festival tasting in each city. All events raise funds for local medical institutions.

The tastings will feature wines from some of the world’s most renowned vintners—from France’s Chateau Mouton Rothschild to California’s Rubicon Estate. Many smaller, undiscovered winemakers from around the world—from the Pacific Northwest and Canada to South America, Australia and New Zealand—will also be pouring.

Highlights include organic wine tastings from producers like Frey Vineyards and Bonterra, as well as locally made wines from notable Pennsylvania producers.
