Happy New Year Allegheny West! I hope you all enjoyed a blessed holiday season. I’m back from an amazing trip in Africa. Safari in Tanzania and wine tasting in the Stellenbosch region, Capetown South Africa. Speaking of wine …
We have the dates for two wine events this year. I’m very excited about how these events are coming together. Tickets already available for sale on AWCC website for both events!

Tour & Tasting in Old Allegheny: Friday June 19th and Saturday June 20th

  • (We’ve already sold 4 tickets!)
  • The tour will seek food and wine sponsorship from various eateries
  • If you are interested in having your home on tour, please confirm with me
  • Future communications will go out about various volunteer opportunities to help pull this together

Pour & Plates – A Wine Showcase Event: Saturday September 12th
Deb Mortillaro of Dreadnought Wines will host an intimate evening in the beautiful gardens of Holmes Hall discussing personally selected wines she’s paring for each of the five courses. All in Good Taste Productions, the premier caterer in Pittsburgh, is currently working on a menu to bring guests classic dishes from the great wine regions of the world. No doubt this will be a spectacular culinary and wine experience.

  • This event sold out in 2018 and I’m thrilled to offer this unique experience again.

Your feedback is needed! Tuesday, February 18th 7:00 pm | AWCC Office – Western Avenue
Please come to this meeting to discuss the tours of 2019 (Wine and Christmas). I’m seeking your feedback on what went well, what needs to improve and creative ideas to enhance the upcoming 2020 tours. If you are new to the neighborhood, please come and learn about the tours and meet your new neighbors. All are welcome.

These tours are only successful because so many contribute. Thank you for your help in 2019 and I’m looking forward to a successful 2020. CHEERS!
