Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Instead of the typical card-and-flowers thing, step up your game and take mom to a local winery for a day of sipping and chatting.
Here’s a sampling of enticing events happening across PA Wine Land.
Enjoy high tea using a special tea cup set that you get to take home with you. Relax and nosh on delicious homemade breads, lady locks, and specialty jams and jellies. Space is limited, so be sure to make a reservation for one of two seatings.
Calling all mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers for free samples of Conneaut Cellars’s specialty wines at this exciting event.
Want to combine a gift with an experience? Make your own stress-away roller, invigorating sugar scrub, and bath salts, while enjoying wine samples at this early Mother’s Day shindig, happening on Thursday, May 10. Call to reserve your spot.
Treat your mom to a mimosa bar (featuring the winery’s Three Witches Sparkling White and Cool Duck). Grab a glass, add your favorite mixer, and pair that bubbly with live acoustic music and snacks from the Real Taste Food Truck, which will be on-hand serving up homemade Mexican cuisine.
This vineyard will be offering complimentary cupcakes and wine tastings all weekend, with moms receiving a free logo wine glass. Pack a picnic and post up at one of the pond-side picnic tables or covered decks. Looking for an even easier plan? Purchase local cheese, salami, crackers, mustards and jams at the winery.
Indulge in wine-infused chocolate truffles, paired with the winery’s award-winning wines. $10 gets you a taste of six wines and four chocolate truffles, along with a souvenir wine glass. Not special enough? There will also be manicures, pedicures and facials available on the grounds.
Stretch out with yoga in the vineyards, followed by a light brunch, a cupcake pairing, and wine tasting in a souvenir glass. The event is BYOM (bring your own mat).
Come out for a scrumptious catered brunch under the VIP tent, and unwind to music from Wizdom World Beat Reggae Band. All mothers will receive a free glass of Sangria!
Join the winery for their annual Mother’s Day Luncheon, held on both Saturday and Sunday. Sample a selection of tasty eats — chicken salad on croissant, tomato-basil-mozzarella on fresh naan — next to the nectar garden.
Honor your queen this weekend! Wear a crown to the estate and you can command a glass of anything on tap in the Champagne Bar for just $4. Sip your bubbly alongside live music and eats from a selection of food trucks, including Philadelphia Hoagie Co., Piper Belle’s BBQ, Sprout Stream by Sven’s Cafe, The Fry Hound and more.
