Stan and Joanne Triplett, franchise owners of Vintner’s Circle Dickson City, participated at this year’s Sno Cove Wine Festival at Montage Mountain. The wine festival featured tastings from more than a dozen local Pennsylvania wineries, in addition to all sorts of traditional festival goodies: live entertainment, arts and crafts, specialty foods, and handcrafted goods.
The Vintner’s Circle booth was packed throughout the day, as Stan and Joanne provided samples of a variety of refreshing wine treats. The new Strawberry Margarita and Mojito were featured as slushies, cool and smooth. Other popular wines served included Peach Apricot Chardonnay, Kiwi Pear Sauvignon Blanc, Blackberry Cabernet, Exotic Fruits White Zinfandel, and Vieux Chateau Du Roi. (The last two wines were both winners at this year’s WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition.)
Stan and Joanne happily offered sips of summer to the thirsty crowds, all the while explaining how people could easily make wines like these (and more) at their Vintner’s Circle wine making shop in Dickson City. And for those of you who are in the Poconos region interested in a further look at the Sno Cove Wine Festival, keep an eye out for the local WBRE broadcast. You’ll get a glimpse of Stan serving wines at the Vintner’s Circle booth!
