Nissley Vineyards is a family-owned and operated winery in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. They?ve been growing grapes and producing Nissley wines for over 25 years.
Just down a country lane bordered by tended vines and sun-dappled meadows, is a stone-arch winery set near an 18th-century mill and a winding creek. Nissley Vineyards, and its companion Winery Estate is located on 300 acres within the fertile Lancaster Valley viticultural area of western Lancaster County - an area renowned for its rich, well-drained limestone-based soils.
The operating winery was built by J. Richard Nissley to reflect the estate's 18th-century heritage. It is airy and bright while retaining a rustic character. The stainless steel tanks, filters and bottling line are complemented by a large stone fireplace.
On 50 acres of carefully tended vines, they grow 14 varieties of grapes. If you visit early in June, you will catch the luscious fragrance of the grape blossoms, with the tender young grape leaves unfurling. Through the spring and summer, the vineyard staff is busy tying the expanding vines onto their arbors and removing unneeded clusters. With Mother Nature's cooperation, the first plump juicy grapes are ready for harvest by mid-August. The juice that ultimately becomes Nissley estate-bottled wine is pressed from grapes brought into the winery fresh from the vineyards.
Their wines have won numerous awards over the past ten years in state & international competitions. Whenever you visit, wine sampling follows each tour, with home-made grape juice for visitors under age 21, who must be accompanied by their parents on tour.
Self-Guided Wine Sampling Tours are designed for individuals and small groups (8 or fewer people) during regular hours year round. Conduct your own tour, at your own pace, with the help of a color guide booklet. There is no charge for the self-guided tour, which is followed by a complimentary wine tasting. Sorry: they cannot accommodate more than 8 people for self-guided tours or tastings.
