Penns Woods Traminette

Wine Wednesdays: Penns Woods Traminette

The wine I’m sharing today is from another Pennsylvania winery (honestly I had no idea that PA had so many wineries), Penns Woods Winery located in Eddystone, PA with a tasting room in Chadds Ford, PA. Eddystone is 20 minutes south of Philly and the tasting room is about 40 minutes outside of Philly, near the PA-Delaware border. This is the first wine I’m featuring that costs more than $15. Honestly, I don’t mind spending more money (although I realize this isn’t that much, I naturally gravitate toward less expensive wines) for good alcohol. The reasons I chose this (in the beautiful new Wine & Spirits store near 20th and Market Streets) was the fact that it’s from PA and it was a variety of wine I hadn’t yet tried.

Holiday Spirit

Wine Wednesdays: Holiday Spirit

It’s that day of the week again! That’s right, Wine Wednesday. You will recognize the winery because I featured another one of their products in the last Wine Wednesday. When I was at the Wine & Spirits store, I already knew I was going to pick up a bottle of the Spiced Apple. I saw the bottle of Holiday Spirit on the shelf next to it as I was contemplating the next wine I would feature, and I just couldn’t resist. Especially with the snowmen winter scene on the bottle label.

Sometimes Painting Needs a Twist

Over the summer, I experienced the fun that is Painting with a Twist with my mom, cousins, aunt, and grandma. I highly recommend it, because the combination of wine and alcohol is just about perfect. The cost is $35 for a 2 hour session, and $45 for a 3 hour class. All art supplies are provided, you just have to bring the wine and food.

You don’t need any painting experience to participate. In one session, everyone paints the same image and the host of the evening goes through each part of the painting step-by-step. Whether you’re worried about not producing something perfect, or if you think your skill level is too high for this, the wine is there to banish those thoughts. The whole point of this evening is to have fun with your friends, drink some, and paint.  Continue reading “Sometimes Painting Needs a Twist”

Covey Run Gewürztraminer

Wine Wednesdays: Covey Run Gewürztraminer

I’ve decided to start a new series dedicated entirely to wine. And what better day to feature wine than on Wednesdays (you might also know it as hump day). My goal is to feature a new wine every week or two. This is the first time I’m really talking about wine here, so please don’t expect anything too refined or formal.

The first wine I’m sharing with you is a Gewürztraminer from Covey Run. I picked it up for three reasons: I was looking for something new to try, it was strategically placed in the middle of the aisle, and it was on sale for $6.99. So, I thought why not give it a try.
