Weston Wine Company prepares seven diamond-themed wines including a sweet red, dry white, and semisweet rose. Try a sample of each in the onsite tasting room, pairing the subtle citrus blossom, cherry, and white flower flavors with mini cupcakes and cheeses. The winery also features adult coloring, painting events and special releases of their delectable cupcakes.
Bob Curttright knew that wine tasted better when it's enjoyed in a scenic setting. That's why he set out on a search for the perfect setting before opening his winery, Whiskey Run Creek. He found the setting he dreamed of in a century-old barn owned by Julius Bergmann and moved the historic structure—which was built from oak and walnut beams without a single nail—more than 18 miles to a creekside property.
Now owned by Ron and Sherry Heskett, they fill visitors' glasses with wine made from Nebraska-grown ingredients. In addition to varietals, such as Chambourcin and Edelweiss, their winery produces seasonal fruit wines made with apples and cherries from local farms. Guests can relax with their wine on an expansive deck or explore renovated brick caves built in 1866.
Dr. John L. Bean and his wife Marsha couldn’t have named Belvoir Winery any more aptly. Belvoir is French for “beautiful view,” and, with 170 lush, vibrant acres to its name, Belvoir Winery certainly doesn’t disappoint. Once a hub for the historic Odd Fellows, the estate now blooms with the vineyards planted by Dr. Bean more than 15 years ago. Vines ripe with golden muscat, chambourcin, and vingnoles grapes anchor the winery’s six signature vinos, which include the floral semi-dry Plumeria and the Lucky Pierre, a sweet red dessert wine. The winery’s newly renovated interior unfolds across five luxurious event spaces, an ornate tasting bar, and a cozy ice-cream shop that overlook the property’s towering 100-year-old trees and stunning marble gazebo. No stranger to supernatural happenings, Belvoir also hosts monthly investigations of its grounds with the Paranormal Research Investigators, a local troupe of ghost hunters also trained in the art of summoning lost car keys.
Lidia Bastianich may be best known as the Emmy-winning host of the PBS series Lidia’s Family Table, wherein she cooks Italian feasts alongside her mother and children. But that’s just one place where the chef combines her passions for food and family. Aside from authoring several cookbooks, Lidia also owns several restaurants, including Lidia’s Italy Kansas City, where loved ones gather to enjoy cuisine inspired by her northern Italian upbringing.
Lidia was born in Pula, Istria, which was once part of Italy. The multicultural city provided her with an expansive palate that is reflected in dishes such as osso buco made with heritage-breed braised pork shank and cabbage rolls stuffed with pork, beef, and veal. However, Lidia's Italy Pittsburgh is best known for its pasta trio, which grants diners unlimited servings of the chef’s choice of three housemade pastas.
A Cozy and Sophisticated Space
Lidia’s Italy Kansas City’s exposed ceiling beams and brick walls give a nod to space's origins as a railroad house. However, the space is remains rustic and elegant. Stained-glass shelves dotted with wine bottles and enormous blown-glass chandeliers offset the dining room's industrial backdrop, casting a warm glow on diners' mouthwatering meals.
