Logan's View WinerySummary: Logan’s View Winery in Pennsylvania is the result of a partnership of friends. The winery produces a significant number of wines both sweet and dry. Most of the fruit for the winery is sourced from nearby Brown’s Orchard.

Logan’s View Winery is a boutique winery located on the top of a knoll. The winery is owned by a group of partners. It opened in 2008.

Logan's View WineryFrom the outside, the winery building reminds one of a barn. Once inside the numerous stainless steel tanks shine brightly against the light wood walls.

During special events, including the Mason Dixon Wine Trail’s Tour de Tanks in March and Wine Just Off the Vine in November, visitors can stop by the winery in Glen Rock for a winery tour and wine tasting. Throughout the year Logan’s View wines are available in Shrewsbury and Loganville.

Today the winemaker at Logan’s View Winery is Steve Bahn, an enthusiastic winemaker. Steve studied enology at Fresno State. In 1981 he opened his own winery. In 1989 he sold the equipment with the vineyard. Steve went to work for the Liquor Control Board. He told us, “I didn’t realize how much I liked winemaking until I didn’t do it for 25 years.”

Logan's View WineryEventually Steve was offered the role of winemaker at Logan’s View Winery. When he walked into the winery and saw three of his own tanks from years ago, he decided that it was a “sign” and accepted the winemaker position. Today he is very happy he is once again producing wine.

Steve produces fruit wines and grape wines. Most of the fruit for the wines is obtained from local Brown’s Orchard and Market. With the fruit, Steve produces apple, ice apple, blackberry, blueberry and strawberry wines. Grape wines include: Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Casa Bianca, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. In spring 2015, 45,000 bottles (375 cases) of wine is produced by Logan’s View Winery.

Merlot 2013 was a translucent dark ruby with a sienna hue. The wine offered an aroma of dark fruit and leather. The taste was of dark fruit, black cherry and leather. Tannins and leather were on the finish.

Blueberry with 9% alcohol was also a 2015 Pennsylvania Farm Show Medal Winner. This blueberry wine offered a fresh blueberry aroma and taste and the taste lingered.
