Stony Run Winery – A Passion for Excellence
by Joyce Soroka ———–
There is a place to the east of southcentral PA. It is a magical place. A place where they make incredible wines. This place is known as Stony Run Winery. Owner and Winemaker Larry Shrawder is the man with the magical touch. He came out of nowhere to wow the crowd at the 2018 PA Wine Excellence Awards when Stony Run Winery took top honors with his 2016 Cabernet Franc. A lot of eyes were opened during that occasion. Larry spoke with the crowd and his wine and words made it entirely evident to the Members and Friends of the Pennsylvania Wine Society that a new, powerful, and very well-versed voice had been introduced to the Pennsylvania winemaking scene. Such passion in this individual! Such quality in his wines!
We will convene at Stony Run Winery on Sunday, August 15th at 2:00 p.m. at their beautiful tasting facility – known as The Cellar by Stony Run – which is located in Breinigsville, PA. This campus alone is worth a visit. An easy drive of a mere 85 minutes by Interstate Highway will take you there from the Harrisburg (PA) area. It is situated in a pastoral setting that exudes peace and tranquility. There is plenty of seating, both inside and out, on upper decks, in courtyards, or inside its spacious confines. The Pennsylvania Wine Society Members and Guests will be seated in the rear Courtyard under the shade of table umbrellas for this event. Our fallback position is to be indoors, in the event of inclement weather.
Our event has us tasting eight of the best East Coast wines you have ever tasted! Those who have yet to experience the wines of Stony Run Winery, are definitely in for a treat! The tasting will consist of a flight of four whites and a flight of four reds, as follows:
2017 Sparkling Brut ~ An elegant celebration of the traditional Champagne blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay.
2019 Albariño ~ Pale yellow in color with aromas of stone fruit, nectarine and white peach with a hint of Key lime meringue. The middle palate offers layers of lemon grass ripe apple and kumquat. The finish shows restrained and elegant acidity along with mineral notes of limestone.
2017 Grüner Veltliner ~ A subtle floral nose complements refreshing lemon-lime flavors with hints of green apple on the palate making this a versatile food pairing partner. This wine took top honors as the Farm Show Best of Show with top scores for both dry white and overall white at the 2019 competition.
2017 Chardonnay Reserve ~ Our traditional Chardonnay features a bouquet of vanilla and toasted oak. Butter and caramel are prevalent on the palate. This wine took the Silver Medal at the Finger Lakes International Competition in 2019.
2016 Merlot Reserve ~ Ripe plum, black cherry, and dark berry flavors compliment caramel notes. Aged in French and American oak.
2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve ~ A nose of plum and lilac continues on the palate with nuances of toasted caramel and dark red fruits. Beautiful oak notes provide a pleasing finish.
2016 Cabernet Franc Reserve ~ Deep currants and blackberries with toasty oak define the nose while the palate shows a supple array of bright raspberry and red plum flavors. This wine was the top award winner at the Pennsylvania Wine Society Wine Excellence Awards for 2018. NOTE: This wine is now SOLD OUT; but, a supply remains for our enjoyment and will be available for purchase during our Pennsylvania Wine Society event.
2017 Flagship ~ This is an elegant celebration of all five traditional varieties authorized for inclusion in Bordeaux wines: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot, all of which are grown in our Kempton (PA) vineyard. It balances deep red fruit flavors with supple tannins.
Stony Run Winery will make the above wines and all of their other wines available for sale at a 10% discount for odd lots of bottles and at a 20% discount per case lots (increments of 12 bottles) to Pennsylvania Wine Society attendees during this event only.
