It is that time of year again! Mega-Volunteer Ted Liberti and his Central PA Colleagues have put together what looks like another fantastic Wine Festival to benefit WPSU in State College. I checked the list of “who’s pouring” (link below) and among the broad variety of over 250 wines, I noticed a number of interesting wines that I plan to seek out as soon as the doors open. The weather predictions are favorable, so I imagine many Pittsburghers will decide to make the beautiful drive through the Laurel Highlands to State College and enjoy the WPSU Wine Festival – if you go, please say hello! Tickets for the Grand Tasting are only $65 and as a special feature this year, Philadelphia Sommelier Marni Old will present a seminar about Spanish Rioja Wines prior to the Grand Tasting. Lastly, The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel is offering a special room rate for Sunday, September 25. Cost is $84 per room. Call 1-800-233-7505 and reference “WPSJ11A” to make your reservation.
