Pairing our fine wines with the best jerky came about when we put our heads together with Righteous Felon Jerky Cartel. We were on a quest to bring more local goods to our tasting room—all it took was one bite and we knew we had to not only stock jerky on our shelves but also bust open our signature Penns Woods Winery pairing offerings with Righteous Felon jerky.
Pssst … want some insider intel? We don't divulge all of our pairing secrets in advance, but here’s sneak peak of just one of the five you’ll enjoy: our Bancroft Chambourcin 2012 with Righteous Felon's newest flavor, Baby Blues Sweet Kick BBQ. Our award-winning wine brings bold flavors with pomegranate, black pepper and sage notes plus a slight peppery kick on the finish, a perfect match for the jerky’s sweet and spicy tastes. Bonus: you can only get this Righteous Felon jerky at the Baby Blues restaurant in Philadelphia, but on Father’s Day weekend you can sample it with a pairing at our Tasting Room.
