Clover Hill features Cayuga White as August Owner's Selection

Veraison ~ the final step of ripening in the vineyard and the precursor to grape harvest. The berries begin to change colors, skins and seeds soften, and sugars intensify. This marks an exciting change in the vineyards and another Clover Hill harvest is near. This is also a busy time of year preparing for harvest. In the vineyard, we are still summer pruning, pulling leaves, cluster thinning and maintaining the overall health of the vines and fruit. In the winery, we are busy bottling to make room for the incoming harvest. (Photo by Jim Gavenus)

This is a glorious time to visit Clover Hill Vineyards and Winery. Stop in for a tasting, sit on the patio and enjoy a glass of wine. We love having groups visit the winery, but please note that groups of 12 or more are by appointment only so we can best serve all of our visitors. To make an appointment for your group, please contact Tina at 610-395-2468 at least one week prior to your planned visit.

If you are looking for a unique way to experience local wineries we suggest Tastings and Tours - a local, family-owned and operated wine and brew tour business that offers one-of-a-kind, VIP tours in Lehigh and Berks County. They do the driving so you can sit back, relax and take in the scenery while sampling at wineries with no worries. Their special partnerships will provide you with guided, all-inclusive, private VIP tastings, tours and pairings not normally offered to the general public.

We look forward to your next visit to Clover Hill Vineyards and Winery. Thank you for choosing to enjoy our locally produced wines. Cheers!

Please note: If you are traveling to the winery in Breinigsville, Schantz Road will be partially closed until July 2015. For detour directions, go here.
