NEW for 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.
As many of you know, this past November we opened a retail store in the Viewmont Mall right next to Gertrude Hawk Chocolates. This store will serve our customers over the next few months, and we hope to keep it as a permanent retail location. In this store we have in stock, our entire inventory of wines along with baskets & gift sets. We can also accommodate wine tastings and wine to-go, just as we do at the winery.
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 serviced 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, and the floor will be waterproofed so that the lower level can enjoy outdoor/covered seating as well.
And on to the most exciting part, the lower level!
This area will be the home to our new, full-service restaurant.
We have partnered with two amazing couples,
Stefano and Kristy Picciocchi, owners of Picciocchi’s Pasta in Clarks Summit, and Ezio Ferrari and his wife Barbara Agnarelli, owners of Modo 21 in Genoa, Italy.
Ezio and Barbara own and run multiple restaurants in Northern Italy predominantly in the city of Genoa. The new restaurant
will serve traditional Northern Italian cuisine along with Picciocchi’s wonderful pasta and a selection of Neapolitan style pizzas, similar to the pizzas on our menu that you have come to love over the years.
They will also provide a small plate menu for the tasting room, for those looking to enjoy lite fare like antipasto/charcuterie.
The restaurant will have its own entrance along with an entrance from the tasting room above. The lower level will have both indoor and covered outdoor seating and will feature our wines along with PA craft beers and a small cocktail menu. All dinners, including pizza will be served in the lower level.
We haven’t thought of a name for the restaurant yet, but we will let you know as soon as we do!
Our current gift certificates will be honored for use in the mall and the new tasting room for wine and lite fare.
The restaurant will have its own gift certificates upon opening.
Our goal is to open the tasting room sometime in March with the restaurant opening sometime in April, SO STAY TUNED and we will keep you posted.
