Summerfest celebrates exceptional local wineries and distilleries in a sophisticated festival atmosphere in the heart of historic Kennett Square.
Summerfest, a brand-new wine and spirits festival for 2022, celebrates exceptional local wineries and distilleries and brings together wine, cheese, art, and live music in a sophisticated festival atmosphere paired with the opportunity to enjoy the Kennett Blooms: Floral Flash installations. Confirmed wineries for the 2022 festival include Casa Carmen, Kennett Square’s own Galer Estate Vineyard and Winery, and Grace Winery.
Some may be surprised to learn that Pennsylvania ranks fourth nationally in grape growing. With its moderate climate and rolling hills, in addition to microclimates with good elevation, soil composition and drainage, Pennsylvania continues to come into its own as a serious place for refined and elegant wines. Local Chester County wines have been receiving national accolades for years, and as the vines that local vintners have been patiently tending for decades now come of age, wine enthusiasts both here and further afield are enjoying the (fermented) fruits of their hard work and perseverance.
The inaugural Summerfest will give ticket holders the unique opportunity to taste wines from 20 of the best local and regional wineries, paired with cheeses from Talula’s Table, as well as spirits from local distilleries and locally crafted botanical mocktails for designated drivers. Live music, wine-centric vendors, food trucks, and a curated pop-up al fresco gallery of local artists all combine to create a Sunday afternoon to savor.
