Marburg Winery's home retail store closes

When news came out about the lineup for the 2009 Uncork York tour, Marburg Estate Winery was missing from among the group that took part in it the past couple years.

Now I understand why. A note on the winery's Web site indicates that the retail store that had been open at the home of Andy and Joan Smith permanently closed yesterday. The store and home, with a Spring Grove mailing address, took a few lefts and right off the main road to find, but the time I was there to taste yielded a couple of wines I liked (admittedly, my palate really leans toward dry) and a spread of munchies and desserts to die for.

The note on the site indicates that private tasting will be available in the near future and that its stand at the Hanover Market will cotinue to be open on Saturdays from 6 a.m. to noon at 210 East Chestnut St. Wine orders also can be placed by calling 717.633.7760.
