Pennsylvania Wine Society Profile

Founded in 1987, the Pennsylvania Wine Society, Ltd. (PWS) is a not-for-profit organization whose aim is to help members learn about the wine-making process, how to select and enjoy fine wines, and the art of combining food and wine. PWS's philosophy is that "life is too short to drink bad wine."

We hold 12 – 15 events each year, ranging from social events to structured, formal tastings of wines from all over the world presented by knowledgeable and engaging winemakers and wine experts. Our members range from beginners to connoisseurs—all are welcome!

Don't Be Disappointed—Register Early for Events!

PWS wants everyone to join us at our fabulous events. Event wines and food are pre-ordered, and event space booked, based on average, predictable attendance and a break-even budget since we are a not-for-profit, all-volunteer organization. PWS is able to add persons to an event as limited by the above.

Your early registration increases our ability to offer you a seat. Seats are reserved with reservation form and check payable to PWS received in the PWS PO Box 61723, Harrisburg, PA 17106–1723 no later than THREE (3) DAYS PRIOR to any event. Please plan ahead so that you may join us!
