Wine, spirits, and unique eats-what more could you ask for on a satisfying Saturday night out? Well, maybe some fine scenery, too. It may seem like a big ask, but not at the Allegheny County Wine & Spirits Festival.

On July 20th, 2019, the Hartwood Acres Mansion will host one of the area’s finest festivals. With fantastic spirits from the region’s best wineries and distilleries as well as a diverse array of food trucks, you’ll find that you have everything you need for a good time all in one place.

Maggie’s Farm Rum | Connect on Facebook

When you first arrive at the festival, you’ll want to hit the ground running and really start off strong. In which case, it’s a good idea to kick things off with some of the most aromatic craft rum that the area has to offer.

Maggie’s Farm Rum is distinct in that it’s the first commercially available PA-made craft rum on offer since Prohibition. It’s distilled from turbinado, raw cane sugar, and Caribbean-derived yeasts. Natural flavors and long fermentation periods yield exceptionally robust flavors that please the palate far more than your standard spiced rum.

Stickler’s Ice Pop Company | Connect on Facebook

By July 20th, we’ll be nearing some of the hottest parts of the whole summer. Seeing as liquor has a way of warming you up, you’ll want something tasty to cool you down, too.

Stickler’s Ice Pop Company will be at the festival slinging their small-batch ice pops, all made with fresh fruit-no additives or bad-for-your-body flavors! Classic pops like Blackberry Lemonade and Pineapple Basil will do wonders to beat that July heat.

Vinoski Winery | Connect on Facebook

You’ve had your strong start and your refreshing ice pop interlude, so now it’s time for the fancy finish. It’s hard to get much fancier than a glass of wine (or three) from Vinoski Winery.

If you’ve ever been to Vinoski Winery in person, it’s probably the building itself that left an impression. Their tasting room is housed in a legitimate castle. The 34-room estate has been remodeled to suit the purposes of the vineyard but still maintains the whimsy of the original design.
Their complete list of wines is as extensive as the castle itself. Stop by and see them at the festival to taste some of their award-winning blends.

Get to Know the Festival’s Other Wonderful Vendors

While these are some of our favorite vendors expected at the Allegheny County Wine & Spirits Festival this year, there are many more to come. You can get to know the whole roster a little bit better by connecting with the event on Facebook. RSVP today to let you friends know where you’ll be on July 20th!
