not only is this a very nice winery with a great shop, but they have lots of events during the year including the PA Renaissance Faire, Murder Mystery dinners, etc. I just attended the Murder Mystery event, over lunch, and it was really fun.

This winery was so great! We made a stop as a part of a bachelorette party and it was our favorite out of the trip! The staff, especially michael was so amazingly fun and personable! He truly made our experience! The wine is great too! We will be back to this winery!

Mount Hope Winery is one of the nicest wineries we've been to. The mansion and grounds are absolutely beautiful. They have a large selection of wines to choose from and sampling is complimentary. Our favorite is the Holiday Wine, but the Spiced Apple is a very close second.

The mansion is a beautiful structure and the grounds are lovely. Mount Hope's wine is pretty amazing. I have a few favorites that I always need to keep in stock. Their two locations make tasting and purchasing easy. The wines are well priced. Making it a stoop a day trip to Lancaster County will make your day THAT much better.

It was good, but a little less than we had hoped for. WE plan to go agin, however, exclusively for a renaisassance festival.

This was the third time my sister and I have visited for the Renaissance Faire. We love everything about it and we have found several outstanding wines that we have become partial to. How many public places can you go and wander around drinking a refreshing Sangria while you shop and take in shows....awesome.

Love this place and all it has to offer, from the Ren Fair to the Dickens Christmas its the place to go for a truly holiday experience. If you stay at one of the local hotels there are plenty of other attractions to fill your weekend and plenty of places for a great meal.

I took my family of five to the dinner show. I'm not a crank or a hater, but I was so dissatisfied I promised myself I'd take the time to write a review. The food was mediocre. While parts of the show were quite good, a few bad segments dragged the whole thing down. It was pretty expensive for a... More

Tons of activities and shows held throughout the day. Activities and shows are designed for different age groups but the map/guide is very easy to figure out and follow! Food is reasonably priced. Be sure to see the final jousting event...it's terriffic!
