Bacon—need we say more? How about bacon-inspired items from our friends at Taste Artisanal Market, Waffatopia and The Bacon Jams … plus wine? We’re sure you’re scrambling for your calendar now to block off August 26–28 for our International Bacon Day Celebration.
We’re serving up amazing pairings at Penns Woods Winery in honor of one of our favorite noshes. Our package-for-two includes a snack plate of Taste Artisanal Market’s Bacon Cheddar Pub Spread, Waffatopia’s Bacon Maple Waffle bites and baked brie topped with The Bacon Jam’s spreads plus one glass of wine per person for just $28.99.
- Traminette 2015, a crisp and clean white with notes of honey and lemon and a mineral finish. It won double gold at the 2016 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.
- Bancroft Riesling 2015, a full-flavored white with pear and jasmine on the nose plus tastes of honey, floral and citrus with a slightly sweet finish. It won silver medals at the 2016 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and the 2016 International Eastern Wine Competition.
- Chambourcin 2012, a complex red with hints of pomegranate, black pepper, sage and earthy flavors. It won double gold at the 2014 Pennsylvania Wine Competition, and the 2010 vintage was awarded the Keystone Cup for Best Dry Wine at that same venue.
- Merlot 2012, a soft-tannined red with hints of ripe berries, black cherry, chocolate and caramelized vanilla. It won silver at the 2016 Pennsylvania Farm Show Wine Competition
Cheers to bacon and wine—a perfect pair!
