We in the Levengood family have been making wine at Manatawny Creek Winery for over 13 years and having a great time doing it! All of our wines are made here at the winery and we grow about half of the grapes we need to produce about 12,000 gallons (5000 cases) of wine every year. All the grapes we purchase are grown in Pennsylvania with the majority grown here in Berks County and nearby Lehigh, York, Chester and Lancaster counties.

Almost all of our wines are sold out of our tasting room with a small amount sold at area restaurants. We do not distribute through other stores, but we can ship to consumers in Pennsylvania. If you visit our tasting room, live in a state other than PA, and want to ship wine to your home, chances are we can do it. Just check with us.

And while you're visiting our tasting room, look through the set of windows on the side wall and you will be able to see down into the cellar where the wine production occurs. Stainless steel fermenting and storage tanks are visible from the tasting room, but in order to see the bottling line and other equipment, you'll have to take a tour of the winery. These tours last about 30 minutes to an hour and are available by appointment only.

Probably the most-asked question we get from customers is how on earth we got into the wine business. In his previous life as a chemical engineer, Darvin was an enthusiastic home-winemaker who always had a few carboys bubbling away in his basement. His wife, Mary, got to enjoy the fruits of his labor for all those years. Their kids, Dave and Joanne, must have acquired the wine bug somewhere along the way. Joanne left her job as an environmental engineer in 1994 and moved to California to study winemaking at the University of California at Davis and to work at several wineries before returning to the family farm in 1997 to start Manatawny Creek Winery. Our farm is located in a wonderful community and our extended family now includes many neighbors and friends who work and play with us.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
