A Tour & Tasting in Old Allegheny
A Summer Evening in Old Allegheny
It’s a home and garden tour – with guided wine sampling! Guests will spend a summer weekend visiting some of the most lavishly landscaped and decorated spaces in the Allegheny West Historic District of Pittsburgh’s Northside.
Celebrating ‘Ground to Glass’ from the Central Coast
Join with your friends in Allegheny West to celebrate the award winning wines of California’s Central Coast. The 2018 walking tour features wines from California’s Paso Robles region as well food pairings inspired by the beautiful locale. We also added a Showcase wine event this year to celebrate the wines and achievements of Gary Eberle.
Home & Garden Walking Tour
Friday, June 22 @ 5:00 pm ~ 9:00 pm | Saturday, June 23 @ 1:00 pm ~ 5:00 pm OR 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm | $75
As you explore the Allegheny West Historic District on Pittsburgh’s North Side, each home or garden on the tour will provide a unique setting for guests to enjoy a wine and appetizer pairing. The guided tour starts at historic Holmes Hall and by the end guests will have visited six additional homes, gardens or other historic structures and enjoyed a delightful variety of wines and specialty foods chosen just for this event.
“Ground to Glass” Showcase featuring Eberle Wines at Holmes Hall
Saturday, June 23 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm | $150
New this year! Join us for an intimate event in the grand Holmes Hall Ballroom to learn more about Gary Eberle, “The Pioneer of Paso Robles Wines” while enjoying an exclusive tasting of four Eberle wines with catered pairings. Gary Eberle grew up in Coraopolis, attended Penn State and became a driving force in developing the Paso Robles wine region. This event will be led by a sommelier imparting the influences from the ground to your glass. This is a separate event from the walking tour and does not include visiting the other homes. It is a total wine experience in an exceptional home.
The walking tour takes place over approximately 6 square blocks of our neighborhood and many of the private houses have steps that must be negotiated so please plan accordingly. Holmes Hall, the site of the Showcase wine event, is a private home and is accessed by approximately 10 steps. The tour happens rain or shine and will not be canceled for weather. If you have questions the accessibility/suitability of the tour for members of your group please contact our volunteers at email@example.com or (412) 444-8687 before purchasing tickets.
