I described this vineyard as in process because it felt as if they were still working on it. The drive to the actual vineyard seems to wind up the side of a hill filled with grapevines. Clean looking, organized. Inside, a small testing counter, a hibachi grill, and tables. They explained that they have cooks come out and serve 3 course meals served with wine. Advance tickets, I am sure. I thought that would be a fun night out with friends.
Outside seating available.
But, being that we like a very sweet wine, we didn't have any favorites. There is only a testing fee is you don't purchase a bottle of wine, so in the end-- we asked for their most popular wine and bought it as a gift.
The person explained that their wines were a French style. To me they were very dry. I wish that they offered a fruitier, sweeter wine. Maybe in the future. We will definitely check them out next year in case they decide to try a sweeter wine. 3 stars only based on wine varieties offered.

This was stop 2 for our Lehigh valley vineyards stop. This vineyards had such great reviews that we had to stop. We called ahead of time and they are super kid friendly. The staff and winemaker could not be nicer. The winery has some nice views of the vineyard. The wine tasting currently was $5 and you could try six. I thought their lover leap, Pinot noir (especially the stone hedge) were very good. Some of their sweeter reds were great like their clink and drink and the metamorphosis. Hands down would go again!

We had a friend visiting and found an ad in the newspaper advertising that Blair Vineyards was giving tours at 12:30 and 2:30. We drove about 45 minutes to get there, thinking it would be a nice way to spend some time outdoors. We got there a bit early and did some wine tasting ($5 for 6 samples). It's nothing special inside, though they do have a nice patio with tables outdoors. We were told the tour would start at 12:30 outside the front door, so we went out and stood around a while. At 12:45 we inquired about the tour and were given the same line, that it would start at 12:30 outside the front door. Guess they didn't have a clock! At 12:55 we wandered down to look a little closer at the vines, watching the front door the whole time. At 1:05 we gave up, disappointed with the whole experience. Don't advertise a tour if you're not going to do it! Next time we'll go back to the nearby Pinnacle Ridge Winery, where we had a very interesting tour and good wine a few years ago.

Blair Vineyards is one of our favorite wineries and one leg of what I like to call the "Golden Triangle" of PA wineries. Great place to relax with some of the best wines,friendly staff and beautiful country views. The others which are all in close proximity and can be done all in one day are Pinnacle Ridge Winery off old Rt. 22, about 3-4 miles away and Vynecrest Winery about anothe 6 miles from Pinnacle Ridge. Visit these, and you won't be disappointed! A great sampling of what is being done at PA wineries. I will be writing a similar review of the other two.

We are big fans of Blair Vineyards. The staff are warm and welcoming. The wines are crafted by a French wine maker. We have tasted wines in France, Italy, CA, NY and PA
and are very pleased with their wines. We have attended the Wine Maker Dinners featuring local chefs paired with their wines!!! Loved them!!! I hosted my daughter's bridal shower there this winter and can't thank the staff enough for helping us create such wonderful memories! It was perfect! The winery provided the linens, tableware, use of kitchen, wine glasses and wine. We brought in everything else and they assisted with set up and clean up. The staff couldn't have been more accomodating! Everyone had a fantastic time, including our dog! Our family and friends from out of state couldn't believe that PA has a winery that not only made wine, but wine they actually enjoyed!
