If you haven’t endured Trax Farms and all of its glory, you are in for a seriously good time. Trax is a South Hills gem tucked inside the borough of Finleyville and has been family owned for over 150 years. This farm operates year-round offering seasonal festivals, events and is packed with unique shops and finds throughout its grounds. Some shops include an Antique Loft, Lawn & Garden Shop, and their very own Arrowhead Wine Shop.
This wine shop has over 30 different blends of wines and fruit wines which are all produced by Arrowhead Wine Cellars of North East, PA. Here is where any wine lover can find the best locally-produced, premium PA wine options. Each blend is crafted from native, European, hybrid grapes and fruits. These shelves aren’t only stocked with fine wines! Grab a locally crafted PA Crooked Core Hard Cider as well as the perfect gift of any wine drinker from wine racks, gift bags, and unique wine glasses.
Speaking of wine, Trax Farms hosts bus tours that you don’t want to miss. Explore three different wineries while commuting on a Quest coach bus all while tasting locally made wines. Discover more about the winemaking process and enjoy hayrides throughout the vineyards while tasting the grapes used to create the wine right off of the vine. By the end of the day, you’ve surely worked up an appetite. Finish your bus tour with a wonderful dinner at the last winery. Guests must be 21 years or older.
