After you learn about the winery’s history and winemaking process during a wine-cellar tour, an experienced wine guide offers insights into the characteristics of eight pre-selected wines, including dry, sweet, semi-sweet, red, white, and rose varieties. Light refreshments are served during tastings, such as an assortment of artesian breads and specialty crackers. Following the tour, guests may sample additional wines in the winery’s public tasting room, including specialty fruit and port-style dessert wines. Each attendee receives a souvenir wineglass and a $5 voucher toward any of the winery’s 2013 events, including murder-mystery dinners or yoga in the vineyard. See a complete schedule of upcoming Saturday tastings for Groupon holders, each of which begin at noon, 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m., or 4:30 p.m.<p>
Four Sisters Winery
Cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, zinfandel, and merlot—these classic European varieties will never emerge from the vineyards of Four Sisters Winery. Since 1984, winemaker Matty Matarazzo has only used grapes that can survive the bitter winters on his 250-acre farm in Warren County. He has won more than 100 regional, national, and international awards for his lineup of more than 25 wine varieties, which includes a sweet red made with concord grapes and a crispy, fruity wine made with several types of late harvest apple.
Four Sisters' staffers grant guests a glimpse of Matty's winemaking process during behind-the-scenes tours, as well as allow them to sample selections during onsite wine tastings. Freshly made light eats from a seasonal bakery can be enjoyed on a outdoor deck, under a tent overlooking the vineyards, or at a picnic table on the grounds. Throughout the year, the winery hosts numerous events, including a Mother's Day buffet, a Father's Day pig roast, and grape-stomping parties spearheaded by disenfranchised raisins.
