Annual Bark for Life Event

Annual Bark for Life Event

Saturday, May 11, is our annual cancer fundraiser, Less Barking, More Wineing. Bring in the flyer, make a wine purchase, and not only will part of the proceeds go to The American Cancer Society, but we will give you dog biscuits made out of our spent beer grains for your pup! There will be some dog-related vendors and maybe even some dogs up for adoption.


Well-behaved dogs are welcome outside. This Saturday also happens to be the first day we will have music and a food truck. Andrea Carlson & Love Police will be playing music from approximately 2pm to 5pm. Food on the Roll by Ellen’s Edibles will be here at lunchtime serving their awesome food. Please do not bring any alcohol – only our wine and beer is allowed on the grounds. And stay tuned on Facebook for more details on timing and menus for that day.

Sunday Fundays with Vincenzos!

This Sunday, May 5, is another Sunday Funday with our Italian friends down the street at Vincenzos. We will have 2 special deliveries that day of personal size pizzas. Order by 12:30 and get delivery by 1:30 or order by 3 and get delivery by 4:30.

All you have to do is fill out an order form and sip your beer or wine in our tasting room or on the deck while you wait for your piping hot pizza to be delivered. The amazing thing about pizza is that it pairs so well with beer AND wine!

Vineyard Update

You may have noticed if you’ve visited recently that the demonstration vineyard in front of the winery is gone. The vines all died this winter and since the area is a little too wet for a vineyard anyway, we decided to remove everything. Bud break in our main 2 vineyards is currently underway and we will soon know to what extent the lantern flies have damaged our vines! Stay tuned….

WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ...

I simply cannot think of a better, more relaxing place to spend a few hours enjoying the company of good friends and great wine! I always look forward to visiting Joanne and the 'gang' at Manatawny!
