Updated Group Policy and final Open House Concert of the season at Pinnacle Ridge

It is that time of year once again - the harvest is upon us! As we begin the process of bringing in all of the grapes that we have worked tirelessly to get ready over the last few months, we wanted to take the time to invite you all out to see some of the "fruits of our labor." Harvest is under way, the winemaking process is beginning, and we are very excited to share all of this with you as we enter the fall season.

Updated Group Policy
In order to accommodate all of our guests and to maintain an enjoyable and conversational atmosphere, we have recently amended our policy when it comes to groups. We will no longer be accepting any commercial vehicles (buses, vans or limos) or large groups (groups larger than 6 persons). We have enjoyed meeting so many wine lovers over the years that have enjoyed our wines on trips from winery to winery on these buses but we have come to the point where we do not feel that we have the adequate space to host such groups, while maintaining the high level of customer service to which we hold ourselves.

When Pinnacle Ridge Winery closes each evening, it still remains our home, so we want to express our appreciation for your understanding with regards to our policy. For those interested in visiting us and having transportation provided, we do work with one local service: Tastings and Tours. Get in touch with Rich at info@tastingsandtours.com or at (484) 695-6465.

Open House Concert Series Finale: The Sterling Koch Band

October 11 we will host The Sterling Koch Band for the first time. We are very excited to host this new performance in the barn. The Sterling Koch Band will take the stage from 2-5 pm, but the tasting room will be open from 10 am - 6 pm. There is no cover charge for the music, and we will have a $5 refundable tasting fee. We will also offer wines by the glass and by the bottle to enjoy throughout the day. We will sell some small plates filled with some of everyone's favorite wine accompaniments. You are welcomed to bring snacks of your own to enjoy. For questions or other inquires, please call us at (610) 756-4481.

This event will also be a special one for our Case Club Members. We will host a Case Club Members Soirée during our final Open House Concert Series event of the year. We invite you to join us on October 11 for some live music in our rustic barn setting and to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine in a commemorative glass along with some small plates of locally sourced delicacies. This event is complimentary for Case Club Members but reservations are required. Come out and enjoy one last jam in the barn. For reservations and details, please call (610) 756-4481.

Chambourcin Weekend with the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail
Join us and the rest of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail wineries as we celebrate the signature grape of
our unique winemaking region. Much like the region in which it thrives, this hybrid is a tough and resilient variety that provides a lot of local flavor. Come and see just how many different delicious styles of wine can be created from such a versatile grape. Our winery makes five wines with the Chambourcin and they will all be on display on Saturday and Sunday, October 18 and 19.

We will feature a rich portabella mushroom stew made with a Chambourcin based stock with your choice of our award-winning 2012 Chambourcin OR our newly-released 2013 Sweet Seduction.
