Stony Run Winery – A Passion for Excellence by Joyce Soroka
Daylight hours have begun to lessen and we are reminded that fall will soon be here. But first we can look forward to the in-person event at Stony Run Winery!
One of the wines in our upcoming tasting is the Cabernet Franc 2016 that won the Pennsylvania Wine Excellence award in 2018. Some other wines include 2018 Sparkling Brut, 2017 Gruner, 2019 Albariño, 2017 Chardonnay oaked Reserve, 2017 Red Bordeaux blend, and 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. I was glad to taste the Chardonnay from the barrels and taste the difference brought about by using oak barrels from such diverse places as Hungary, France, and the United States (Minnesota).
Since our planning visit in May, we were informed recently that Stony Run Winery was awarded the Best Wine in the State for their Albariño in the 2021 Philadelphia Sommelier Competition. Congratulations to Larry Shrawder and his team!
In a short time, one thing I have learned about Stony Run Winery is that they are always working to improve the current wines by trying new processes for wine making, such as using a hyper oxidation method for wine processing, and to bring new experiences to their guests.
On July 1st, Stony Run is partnering with a local art gallery to display the works of over 70 artists. The works will be on display with a monthly change in artwork that will focus on a single artist. The artwork will be available for purchase through the gallery. If you are planning ahead, an art and wine event will be offered in combination with the wine crush in September.
During our visit to Stony Run, we urge you to bring a picnic lunch for your enjoyment with the wonderful wines offered by Stony Run. They also offer a charcuterie menu as an option if you prefer not to pack a lunch.
I hope you are getting excited to join us for this extraordinary wine tasting experience on Sunday, August 15 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at The Cellar by Stony Run, 150 Independent Road, Breinigsville, PA 18031. We look forward to enjoying the event with you! Stony Run wines will be sold at a 10% discount for bottles and 20% discount per case to all attendees during this event only.
All CDC and PA DOH distancing and safety precautions will be followed. 100% COVID 19 vaccination with follow-up waiting period completion is required to confirm event reservations.
