Pumpkin Wine?  Chocolate Wine?  I got this press release back in July when it was so scorching hot here at home that I just wanted to cool off.  November in York, Pennsylvania sound like the place to be for that!  I can cover the $10 ticket, just got to find someone else to cover that pesky air fare!
During UnCork York’s 2010 Wine Just Off The Vine Event!
YORK, PA – Your perfect fall getaway awaits in UnCork York Wine Country! You’re invited to join 12 wineries along the UnCork York Wine Trail behind the scenes after harvest to witness a grape’s transformation from vine to bottle during the Second Annual Wine Just Off The Vine Event, November 19-21, 2010. You’ll sip exclusive tastings of freshly-pressed wines and enjoy unique combinations like Tamanend Winery’s pumpkin wine alongside scrumptious spiced cake and Cullari Vineyards & Winery’s delicious new chocolate wine paired with fresh fruit.

Meet the makers during the Wine Just Off The Vine Event! UnCork York winemakers will be on hand to share with you the passion they pour into each vintage.

“When you sample young wines that are either freshly bottled or still in tanks or barrels, you’ll be getting a first hint at what the vintage was all about,” notes Allegro Vineyards winemaker Carl Helrich. “Newly-harvested wines usually show more primary fruit characteristics and are usually edgier and more vibrant.”
