Celebrate 5 years with The Vineyard & Brewery at Hershey

Share Article

In just five short years, The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey has grown from a small operation in the signature farmhouse to hosting thousands for a national recording act during their 2016 Merlot Release Party.

It’s time to raise a glass and celebrate The Vineyard & Brewery at Hershey with their 5th Anniversary Party on Feb. 25.

Come out and celebrate five years of The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey with new releases, local vendors and LIVE music from The Philly Elvis.

Vendors will be selling cigars, cheeses, desserts and more to enjoy while sipping on your choice of wine or beer.


Since the doors opened five years ago, guests have continued to file into the farmhouse for guided wine tastings or to grab a bottle of the latest creation from winemaker, L. Paul Vezzetti. The Vineyard’s first bottling run featured all hands on deck, including Merlot Mike himself.

By the end of year two, The Vineyard had a new look with the addition of the red barn, which has become an icon for the company. While plans for a new barn were always in place, the partners didn’t think they would need it until Year 5.

Now, it’s hard to imagine a day at The Vineyard & Brewery at Hershey without the barn as the backdrop or main hangout for the day.

After establishing the barn, the plan to incorporate a brewery came to fruition. Ryan Delutis was hired as the head brewer to incorporate fresh craft beer onto the menu.

In addition to making delicious wine and beer, The Vineyard & Brewery at Hershey’s innovative events like Straws and Stripes and the infamous Merlot Release Party — among many other fun activities week after week — keep people coming back for more.

This year, the entire grounds of the vineyard are licensed to sell beer and wine by the glass. Multiple full-service serving stations are going to be set up throughout the grounds so you can grab your drink and head back to your seat for the show.

Don’t miss The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey’s 5-Year Anniversary Party this Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
