One of my favorite wineries ever! I am more of a sweet wine girl and all their fruit wines are yummy! Black on Black is amazing!!!! Just wish they had a nicer atmosphere for their tasting building.

Thank you Trish! We actually have two beautiful vineyards and a winery on our farm, but the local township does not allow us to open it to the public. More

This is a nice tasting room but you are not going here to view any vineyards. It is right on 322 and there really are not views; albeit slightly if you sit in the back. The wines are good, depending on what you like. Service is friendly. Try the chocolate port, you are, after all, in Hershey.

Salvatore C, Owner at Cullari Vineyards and Winery, responded to this review

Hi Patty. Thank you for your comments. Just so there is no confusion, we are actually on Rt. 422 in Hershey (not 322), which is Chocolate Ave. Also, our Coco Nostra is a wine, not a port. More

That's all you need to know. Go buy the chocolate cherry wine. If you like chocolate covered cordial cherries, you must buy this wine. Of course, pay the $5 and sample some wine and then immediately buy that wine. The other wines were great too. But, I'll say it one last time, buy the chocolate cherry wine! You'll thank me... More

We stopped in here for something to do on a rainy day. It's a great "mom & pop" small business and the wine is delicious. The staff make it even better. I would recommend stopping here to anyone. Try the Black On Black!

We have visited several US and Canadian wineries in our travels and Cullari's tasting room was one of our favorite visits! It was nice to visit a PA winery and being PA natives we were happy to support PA winemakers. Love the chocolate wine, Coco Nostra, and the Flaming Red of the specialty wines. Another favorite among the fruit wines... More

A couple of recent reviews have criticized Cullari for its location, and while it's true that the surroundings aren't that scenic, it's not an issue when you come to a winery for the wine, and to me, Cullari's wines are first-rate. There are several wineries nearby with plush tasting rooms and beautiful views, but frankly I'm tired of overpriced wines... More

Wow Frank! I don't think I could have said it any better if I tried. Thank you! The fact is we own a beautiful 25 acre farm in Hershey where our vineyards and winery are located. I would love to sell our wines there but Derry Township (Hershey for those of you who aren't local) has never allowed us to... More

Cullari's tasting room in Hershey is kind of like our guilty pleasure! When my husband and I get unplanned time together, we love to go to Cullari, try their new wines, re-try some of our favorites and indulge in a glass as well. On weekends they serve complimentary cheese and crackers which no other local winery does so it's a... More

Cullari seemed good on paper, with their backstory and ties to Italian wine making traditions... but after checking them out first hand, I'm not a fan and probably wouldn't return. The tasting room is just that, not a winery, not a vineyard, just a strip mall located tasting room with a very old, cheap looking decor. The wines are not... More

Joe, thanks for your review. The fact that we have sold more wine this year than any other time in our business history suggests that they are a lot of people out there who don't have the same opinion about our wines that you do. The vast majority of our Tripadvisor reviews would suggest the same thing, but thanks for... More

Friendly little place, but weird for a wine tasting. You get a little "menu" to your table and choose the wines you want to drink with a little signal card when you're ready for next round. In that respect, I suppose you don't feel rushed, but the nice folks pouring didn't seem to know anything -- offered NOTHING -- about... More

Well, I always appreciate people taking their time to review us, but sometimes after reading them, I just have to scratch my head. Our "strip mall" location is actually a converted one bedroom house with beautiful landscaped gardens all around us. Our "menu" is actually a 2 page list of our 35 different wines with detailed descriptions of each wine,... More
