Lehigh Valley AVA

An American Viticultural Area (AVA) is a federally designated wine grape-growing region in the United States. Established in 2008, the Lehigh Valley AVA covers 1.2 million acres across a 1,888 square mile area and six counties in eastern Pennsylvania.

Vitis vinifera and French-American hybrids such as Chambourcin and Seyval Blanc grow well in the region’s well-drained shale and limestone soils.
