It’s time to start planning for the 2019 Tour & Tasting Event!

Yay – the Polar Vortex is over and Punxsutawney Phil says spring is right around the corner, so it must be time to start planning for the 2019 Allegheny West Wine Tour! The dates are set, Friday June 21st and Saturday June 22nd. The approach is going to be a little bit different this year. Pittsburgh has been recognized nationally and internationally as a destination for foodies. To capitalize on that and draw more awareness to the tour and Allegheny West, the tour committee is going to solicit restaurants to participate and present their food and suggested wine pairing at the homes. I’m excited to share that we’ve already been successful in raising strong interest from several restaurants.

In the short term what is needed are homes! If you are interested in having your house on the wine tour this year, have any questions, or want to know how you can help please contact me Annette Trunzo at I’m really excited about the tour this year and to network with restaurants about the event. Please check the Gazette and weekly e-newsletter for updates about the tour and tour meetings. Cheers!
