My personal tasting selection was a straight run of dry reds.. starting with the star of the party, the Nouveau.. and I found myself torn between wanting to tell everyone about this wonderful gem.. and also hoping that it stays a best kept regional secret. This wine will undoubtedly win some awards. Luckily for me, they aren't shipping out of state yet, so I will hopefully have a few more times to stock up before they are sold out (hopefully). I also partook in tastings of the Claret, Chambourcin, Syrah-Chambourcin, Merlot-Chambourcin, the Merlot and the Cabernet Sauvignon. I personally think the Merlot and the Cab Sav are both great for drinking now but will get even better with some cellar time. My favorites for this trip however were the Syrah-Chambourcin, the Claret, and the Nouveau.
Seating at these special events are very limited.. which is a great thing if large crowds aren't in your list of desirable elements for ambiance. This event had the feel of a private party, very relaxed, and it was easy to mingle with such a small group. But please note, if you live outside of Pennsylvania and would like to attend one of the many special events at this winery, you will find that they cannot sell anything online to an out of state address. Simply call the winery and they will hold a reservation for you.
