Q&A with Desirae, Marketing Director

What sets your business apart from your competition?

In four easy steps, we help you create a great tasting wine with your own label. We promise that your finished product will be a delicious wine that you will be proud to share with family and friends.

What was the inspiration for starting this business?

Stan and Joanne started making wine ... to carry on the family tradition of home winemaking, but they had a lot of learning to do as they went through the process. After years of experimenting at home, they tried making wine at one of the Vintner's Circle locations. They couldn't believe how easy it was to make wine and how each batch always came out tasting great. Joanne and Stan decided to open a location here in NEPA to share their experience with new and experienced winemakers here.

What?s your favorite part about your job?

We love spending time with our customers and helping them make a great tasting wine. It's fantastic to see groups of family and friends come in together and really enjoy their experience here, whether they are making wine or attending one of our classes or events. Stan and Joanne's favorite event by far is the Sangria Challenge. They love seeing how much fun the teams have in the trivia challenge and how creative the teams get in building their Sangria and designing their labels.

Smooth, rhythmic, and confident. That's one way witnesses described Mozart's snoring, but it also describes the Paso Fino—a unique horse breed admired for its cadenced gait. Using all four legs in harmony, the paso fino's hooves each strike the ground independently in a flawless sequence of movement. The result is a fluent performance in which the rider appears virtually motionless in the saddle.

Stretched across 56 acres of pastureland in Waymart, RO-NO Ranch lets visitors experience the paso fino's prized march. Nola Haupert-Keill heads the facility's expert staff of equestrians and boasts an equine career that spans more than a quarter-century. At RO-NO, Nola and her team offer lessons to all levels of riders. Most lessons take place in the facility's outdoor riding area, but in cases of bad weather, groups find shelter beneath the roof of RO-NO's spacious indoor riding arena.

The Adventure Center at Skytop Lodge sits high in the forests of the Pocono Mountains, spanning nearly 6,000 acres that include zipline courses, Old West–themed paintball fields, and a rock-climbing wall more than 30 feet tall. There's also an onsite golf course, where golfers can practice their swings on 18 holes arranged to resemble Arnold Palmer's face. In addition to these land-based adventures, customers can kayak or cast out for rainbow trout or bass on one of the pine-fringed lakes.

After a day of recreation, visitors can head to the lodge. The comfy accommodations let customers recharge, and offer access to a swimming pool and full-service spa, where therapists soothe muscles with aromatherapy massages and shiatsu or lavender-infused reflexology treatments.

There’s a symphony of chirps in the woodlands of northeastern Pennsylvania; storied naturalist John James Audubon visited the Pocono Mountains in 1829 to document the lush upper Lehigh River area, which is populated by bluebirds and woodpeckers. Today, trilling chirps also come from the slot machines that stand sentry at Mount Airy Casino Resort. Roughly two hours from the bustling streets of New York City and Philadelphia, the Poconos area is known for its quiet forests, cabins, and outdoor adventure. The resort posits itself in this verdant landscape with an approximately 65,000-square-foot gaming floor, where the sound of shuffling cards emits from 72 blackjack, poker, and other table games.This palatial hotel complex is also home to five different restaurants that satisfy a wide variety of appetites and budgets. Romance is in the air at Le Sorelle Cucina, a cozy Italian bistro that serves up classic dishes such as sicilian baked oysters and filet alla gorgonzola. Betty's Diner gives diners a taste of old-fashioned America, as its dining room comes decked out in 1950s memorabilia and all of its delicious malts are eligible for political office. Post-meal, crash land into the comfort of the deluxe king or double-queen rooms, which feature spacious bathrooms and pillow-top beds clad in goose-down comforters.Pocono—which translates to "stream between two mountains"—is speckled with hidden lakes and waterfalls throughout its terrain. Frazzled city-goers, everyday adventurers, and unemployed town criers flee from the urban centers to experience the peaceful wilderness, whether they’re skiing in winter or, in more temperate months, mountain biking, hiking, and kayaking at Delaware State Forest. Quiet, historical towns and hamlets pepper the deeply forested area.

The gentle, sheen-coated stallions at Valcor Stables bond with riders and offer their strong backs for lessons, trail rides, and riding camps. Resident instructors teach riders how to command their steeds in the styles of Western and English riding and jumping during 30-minute and hour-long lessons on the safe training horses, identifiable by their willingness to raise a hoof when they know the answer to the teacher’s question. The experienced equestrians also lead riders around the grounds on trail rides, during which they’ll explore the woods and enjoy the fresh country air.
