With all due respect to beer (which we also enjoy), there’s something about a bracing sip of just-the-right wine with picnic food. Think a red-and-white checkered tablecloth or blanket and a stuffed picnic basket or blazing grill, and you can see how easy it is for wine to sneak in as the perfect fit. Whether it’s a casual affair or something more sophisticated (real wine glasses!), we invite you to rule Memorial Day with our five top pairings.
1. Start with a Salad
2. Get Cheesy
Pro tip: drizzle with honey, balsamic or chocolate for unforgettable tastes and offer an assortment of crackers. Not into red wine? Try our refreshingly sweet Bancroft Moscato with peachy-pineapple-honeysuckle flavors or a nutty-vanilla unoaked Chardonnay Reserve (or try all three!).
3. Enter the Entrees
4. Don't Forget Dessert
5. Just Sippin'
Plan a trip to our Tasting Room to get your hands on our recommendations. Looking for something to do Memorial Day weekend or trying to get out of the family BBQ (we won’t tell!)? Come hang with us at Penns Woods Winery for a Sangria Weekend. BYO food and then sit back, relax with some sangria and groove to the music. We’re here the whole weekend for wine-to-go and this very special event.
