We are excited to announce that the region’s newest family-owned and operated winery, Tolino Vineyards in Bangor, has joined our Wine Trail, bringing our non-profit organization’s membership to nine wineries.
Situated on a 76-acre farm, the nine-acre winery is committed to growing the finest grapes and preserving the rural landscape and handcrafting artisanal wines. The Tolino Family’s passion for creating high-quality wines is enhanced by Owner Carl Tolinio’s Italian heritage and agrarian roots. The winery makes several wines including Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Vidal Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Mama’s Rose, Papa’s Red, Chambourcin and Ice-style Wine.
Its 2010 Cabernet Franc was awarded the Double Gold medal and the Governor’s Cup at the 2014 Pennsylvania Farm Show Competition as the Best of Show Dry Grape Wine in the state. The winery is located at 280 Mt. Pleasant Road in Bangor, Pa. It is open for tastings and sales Monday - Friday from 3 – 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon - 6 p.m.
“Carl and his family hit the ground running,” said Lehigh Valley Wine Trail Board President Dominic Strohlein. “The vineyard is very impressive, well thought out, and beautifully executed. Great grapes make great wine and this is the case for Tolino Vineyards. I think the Tolino family is going to be a great addition to the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail.”
