Get Ready for 2019 Tour and Tasting, featuring the Northside!

Submitted by Carol Gomrick

I’m thrilled to share that all of the homes are secured for the 2019 Wine Tour. Thank you to the following homeowners for opening up your homes.

2019 Homes

Holmes Hall (719 Brighton Road)
Scott Keeney (905 Beech Avenue)
Carol & Brett (940 W North Avenue)
CCAC West Hall (Ridge Avenue)
Emmanuel Church (957 W North Avenue)
Dennis & Doug (808 Galveston Avenue)

PLEASE NOTE! We are very excited that we are looking to have on the tour West Hall part of CCAC. This stop is added so guests will be able to view the incredible exhibit sharing a 50-year history retrospective of Allegheny West. An incredible story, beautifully woven together by Doris Short and Greg Coll. Doris and Greg will be on hand to walk guest through the exhibit. We would be remiss if we did not thank CCAC for generously opening the hall for the tour and allowing the exhibit to be extended for the guests.

I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Dr Quintin Bullock, CCAC President, Dr Evon W. Walters, Campus President and Mary Henderson with Facilities who all have supported the efforts to open these historic buildings for our tours. Please look in the near future on the Allegheny West website and in the program for upcoming wine tasting classes being offered at the CCAC Allegheny Campus.
