    Allegro’s Apple Cinnamon is THE perfect fall wine. It’s truly great to drink chilled, or as a nice warm mulled wine on a crisp cool fall day. I also have used the Apple Cinnamon wine in a dessert I make. It would be awesome to win birthday is Nov 14th!

  2. Marlene says:

    I love Moon Dancer Vineyards & Winery, especially their Susquehanna Spice, it’s amazing heated up!

  3. stephanie hartaub says:

    Moon Dancers by far!!!!! Their fruit wines are amazing & I make a drive every Fall just to the the spice wine! Apple cider w/a kick!

  4. Al Brooks says:

    Allegro Forte is a perfect port for having next to the fire on a fall evening.

  5. Mary K says:

    Susquehanna White! Nice!

  6. Krystal Ostrom says:

    I love Boordy Vineyard! Great wine and always a great time with the girls in their beautiful barn!!!

  7. Alisa Grove says:

    It is so difficult to pick a favorite, but if I’m forced, I would have to say Punk from Allegro.

  8. Coleen Deems says:

    The new Sweet Caroline from Logan’s View…a very soft, not too sweet niagara style. Goes with everything, and fabulous all by itself!

  9. Steven T. says:

    I am torn from the Bridge at Allegro and Firefly at the Vineyard at Hershey… That said, no offense Krystal, but I do not know why the YORK PENNSYLVANIA CVB is supporting Maryland wineries on this trail? As an employee at a York hotel, I am really, really frustrated that the York CVB has lost touch with the people it is supposed to serve.

  10. Chelsea Runkle says:

    Four Springs winery was the best! Especially the City Kitty wine, yummy!

  11. Barb Robertson says:

    Nissleys Spicey Red is my favorite for fall and holiday gatherings, I serve it warm and it is always a big hit.

  12. Colleen Robbins says:

    Nissley’s Naughty Marietta is the perfect hearty red for the fall and winter season.

  13. Suzanne Presley says:

    Hummingbird’s white port makes me smile

  14. Denise Mauzy says:

    I like “Jazz”

  15. Terri Hinckley says:

    I like the Niagra from Naylor’s.

  16. Linda Robbein says:

    I love Cocoa Nostra from Cullari… I noticed they are not participating this year. :(

    As an aside, I agree with S.T. above — I also wondered why Maryland is on the trail. It makes no sense. Is the York CVB so hard up for money they are now promoting another state’s wineries? We have WONDERFUL ones here… Naylor, Allegro, Hummingbird, The Vineyards (Hershey/Grandview), Cullari, and Armstrong Valley. Let’s support our home grown guys!

  17. Brenda Brown says:

    Nissley’s Niagara!!!! Nothing better!!

  18. Devon verno says:

    anything by Allegro but if I must choose a favorite I would say Punk
