Nestled among the rolling hills and family farms of the Lehigh Valley AVA, and not too far from Allentown, Pennsylvania, the winery and vineyard sit atop a hill with a commanding view of the surrounding countryside.  Their hill top location produces several microclimates, which accentuates their unique terroir.  Richard and Dana invite you to join them in a relaxing and enjoyable experience where quality will always take center stage and you are sure to depart just a little richer in life.
