Jet Wine Bar, Philadelphia’s “global vineyard” and South Street’s urban oasis, is kicking off Pennsylvania Wine Month this October by highlighting local wineries through a series of Meet the Maker Happy Hours, held every Thursday in October from 5 – 8pm. Wine connoisseurs can indulge in flights and bites as well as sip on Jet Wine Bar’s signature wine flights after each event (or until wines are sold out).
In the foliage-filled garden space adjacent to Jet Wine Bar, surrounded by greenery and the mural-clad walls, guests can sip a bevy of wines from across the Keystone State and meet the folks who bring the delicious libation from grape to glass. Thespotlighted makers will include those from hyper-local wineries like Mural City Cellars in Kensington to Mazza Vineyards from Erie, Pennsylvania to 1723 Vineyards in Landenberg, Pennsylvania. All events are first come, first served and pay-as-you-go.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating Pennsylvania Wine Month and featuring some of our favorite local wineries,” said Nick Baitzel, Director of Operations at Sojourn Philly. “If there’s one thing we know, it’s good wine. Pennsylvania Wine Month presents a fun opportunity to showcase winemakers all in our home state, which provides some contrast to our typical ongoing rotation of global wines.”
See below for a list of local wineries who will be popping up at Jet Wine Bar throughout the month of October.
