An Original Member of Brandywine Valley Wine Trail, Chaddsford Winery Still One of Pa.’s Top Producers
Chaddsford Winery is one of the Pennsylvania producers that put the state on the wine map, both locally and regionally, writes Paul Vigna for the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
It first opened nearly four decades ago with 7,000 gallons of wine available for sale from the 1982 vintage. This made it larger when it originally opened than half of the state wineries that were operating in 2000.
Eric and Lee Miller made dinner and special events a staple at the winery, and soon Chaddsford became one of the first wineries in the state to be recognized for the quality of its dry wines. It became one of the original members of the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail and is one of Pennsylvania’s top producers of wine to this day.
Some things have changed, though, due to the pandemic and customers’ changing preferences.
“Gone are the days of blowout festivals, with the property overrun by massive crowds and customers 5 or 6 deep in the wine tasting tent,” said Corey Krejcik, the winery’s GM and vice president. “Now, Chaddsford has purposefully scaled back their offerings to provide more intimate and meaningful experiences for their visitors.”
