January 2023 – A NEW Tasting room for July 2023!
A Special Announcement……… a message from Sal Maiolatesi.
Over the past few months, there have been many stories floating around about the future of our winery.
Today I would like to share the exciting news in detail, so we can clarify and explain our plan for the near future.
The current tasting room on Cabernet Drive in Scott Township will close temporarily starting January 1, 2023. This is so we can construct/re-model a few minor changes to the interior of the space and prepare for the arrival of “The Ridge at Maiolatesi”,
A full-service wedding venue hosted entirely by Larry Nicholas and the Team at Constantino’s Catering. Click the link to watch a short video about the venue….
Onto our next venture, we are amid construction, a two-story building that will be the home of our new tasting room and restaurant. For those who haven’t seen the progress and its location, it is on our same property but on the left side of Cabernet Drive. A few details about the construction… the top level will
be the new location of our tasting room. It will boast a large deck both covered and uncovered so you will have the same
un-interrupted views as before.
November 2022: Exciting news happening at MAIOLATESI WINE CELLARS!
First up in line: Starting November 16, 2022 – March/April 2023, we will have a retail store conveniently located inside the Viewmont Mall, near the food court and right next door to Gertrude Hawk Chocolates. This is the best and easiest way to shop our wines for your holiday dinner table, and for gift giving as well!
*please note that this is not the annual/holiday the pop up store in the food court*
This retail location will be fully stocked with all of our wines and wine accessories. The phone number for this new location is (570) 209-2198.
Secondly, starting this January 2023, our current tasting room in Scott Twp. will be closed as we transition into our NEW tasting room in the Spring … located on the same property but across the driveway, in a building that is currently under construction. Our new tasting room will be located on the top floor of the building and will boast the same great views and sunsets as our current tasting room…. Including the large deck still overlooking the Endless Mountains.
The Ridge at Maiolatesi is the new name of our full-service wedding venue in collaboration with Constantino’s Catering & Events. Our original tasting room and private events venue will be lightly renovated and combined to assist in hosting weddings and other private events. For more details, pricing, and available dates in hosting a wedding or private event at The Ridge at Maiolatesi, please contact Constantino’s Catering and Events (570) 963-1691.

Hello friends, family, and loyal customers. I wanted to give everyone an update on some exciting changes happening at the winery!
There’s quite a bit to cover so here it goes!
As some of you might have seen in recent weeks the winery tasting room has been freshened up a bit with some new doors, lighting, and a well needed painting, but there’s more, lots more!
We are making changes to our front deck by adding a 24×36 bump out that will have a reverse gable roof covering the entire portion of the addition along with part of the original deck. We’ve also made some changes to the event space removing my office and a storage closet and with the help of Pauline turning it into a beautiful bridal suite with multiple full length mirrors, a 12’ marble counter with mirrors for your makeup artist and or hair stylist, a sitting area, and access to the back deck. Which brings us to the next project that we’re working on, a beautiful outdoor ceremony site set into the hillside with stone retaining walls, new landscaping, a stamped concrete patio all with direct access from the back deck. These changes are leading up to the bigger announcement… “The Ridge at Maiolatesi’s” which is the new name for the wedding venue.
We’ve partnered with Larry Nicolais of Constantino’s Catering & Events to bring your wedding experience to the next level! Starting in 2023, Constantino’s will be planning, coordinating, and catering all events at The Ridge at Maiolatesi’s.
Opening in March 2023 this exciting venue will encompass all of the original tasting room, front deck, rear porch and event room into an exclusive wedding venue. The couple will be able to enjoy the entire venue for the weekend of their wedding. They will have access to a newly built bridal suite; Ceremony on the expanded and covered sunset deck, overlooking the endless mountains; Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvres in the re-minted tasting room; dinner and dancing in the ballroom; and firepits and cordials on our back porch. The additional ceremony and outdoor patio mentioned above is set into the hillside for a more intimate setting. The Ridge at Maiolatesi’s will be a full service wedding venue offering: Constantino’s famously fabulous wedding fare and service; a full open bar; all services and wedding amenities. Constantino’s will also host showers and small events during the springtime months. We as Maiolatesi Wine Cellars will continue to produce our wines in the current wine cellar, but wait there’s even more!
We are in the final stages of design and will be breaking ground on a new facility on the property that will host our new tasting room and restaurant. We will incorporate a private tasting room into the new design, an expansive covered deck and also a portion that will be uncovered for those of you who love the sun! The restaurant will be separated from the tasting room so we can run each portion of the business independently. With this new design you will be able to enjoy just the tasting room, just the restaurant or both!
As we know more, and have real pictures, we will show you the progress. For now, we’ve attached some pictures of what the new space will look like and some pictures of the new venue’s building progress.
We hope to see you soon. We thank you for the many years of support and look forward to making your experience at the winery better than ever!
Sal, Pauline, and our Family at Maiolatesi Wine Cellars
