Gregoire GL7.4 What does this impressive beast have to do with putting better wines in your glass? To find out—join us on Friday, May 19th at the Hilton Harrisburg.

The Waltz team has prepared a special event—more than a tasting. Here are 7 key features for you: 

· Enjoy an educational presentation supported with slides and video content showcasing what’s new at Waltz Estate Vineyards.

· Taste new wines made by 7th generation Zach Waltz, graduate of Cornell’s oenology program.

 · Learn about the mysterious Gregoire GL7.4, and how it improves wine production from vine to glass.

· Relax and comparatively taste, not just the familiar, but a full lineup of White, Rosé and Red wines.

· Get FREE passes for visiting the Waltz tasting room to check out future selections!

· Win Waltz Library Wines! Wines no longer available for purchase—some that you may have purchased and should have aged, but were too impatient to stay the path. Join us to get your hands on one of those older bottles which is now drinking prime!

· Enjoy pairing wines with Hilton Chef Bianca’s special nibbles plate to accompany our wines. For the whites: Seared Sea Scallop Garlic and Honey, Bowtie Pasta in a white wine cream sauce, Herbed Cheese Crostini and Arugula. For the reds: Sauteed Mushroom with a Cabernet Demiglaze, Beef brochette with Bleu Cheese, Dark Chocolate Truffles.

It will be a great evening. Please come help us celebrate this four-time PA Wine Excellence Winner!

Waltz Vineyards is committed to using only their estate-grown fruit. The vineyard team works diligently throughout the year shoot tucking, thinning, leaf pulling and weeding to assure vines produce top quality vinifera wine grapes.

The boutique winery utilizes the most modern wine-making technology imported from Italy. 

Many of the wines are finished in French oak barrels sourced from some of the top coopers in France. Each barrel is ordered to be charred specifically for the type of wine to be made. Throughout the year, a rigorous barrel maintenance program is maintained to protect and preserve the beautiful cooperage. If you’ve seen the barrel room, you know. Waltz has always meticulously maintained all their processes to make great wines. I can’t recall ever seeing a cleaner crush pad or barrel room!

Here’s what we’ll be tasting Friday, May 19th:

2022 Sauvignon Blanc

2019 Sémillon

2021 Fusion

2021 Old Line Chardonnay

2019 Reserve Chardonnay

I know many of you are excited about this event. For those of you who have not tried these wines, you will be surprised and delighted. Find out what hard work in the vineyard and the cellar means for you the consumer. Enjoy Waltz Vineyards Estate Winery’s bold reds, intriguing whites, and a most captivating rosé guided by the actual grower and winemaker.
