Groups of 5 or More

We welcome groups! Any group larger than 8 people should make a reservation for a tasting and tour. We want you to experience everything there is to see at Franklin Hill Vineyards.

We are proud to be the Lehigh Valley’s oldest winery! Take a cruise through Bangor, PA’s beautiful farm lands, and turn onto Franklin Hill Road. As you wind down the small country road, and enter the fields of grapes…you have arrived! The destination delivers an open space, with a grand view revealing over 20 acres of vines, the tasting room, gift shop, and winery.

Order a flight of your favorite reds and whites, and taste why the wines have proudly won so many awards! While inside the wine shop, ask one of our many helpful staff members how we “do it”, and you may just be whisked away on an up-close tour by our the owner, Elaine Pivinski, or master winemaker, Bonnie.

Our owner Elaine “got the idea” of starting Franklin Hill Vineyards shortly after she attended the 1969 Woodstock concert in Bethel. We encourage all of our visitors to learn more about our interesting and inspirational beginning. The history of our winery is something our entire staff is proud to be a part of.

Please note that only certified service animals are allowed on property, we cannot accommodate pets.
