The state Liquor Control Board plans to announce a new program today at the Pennsylvania Farm Show that could put more local wines on state store shelves.

LCB spokeswoman Stacy Kriedeman said a “PA Preferred” winery could select a number of wines to be placed in local wine and spirits stores.

“PA Preferred” products are grown or made in the commonwealth and bear a check-mark logo.

Local “PA Preferred” wineries include Greendance Winery at Sand Hill near Mount Pleasant, Christian Klay winery near Farmington and La Casa Narcisi Winery in Gibsonia.

Wines from some Pennsylvania wineries already are in state stores, but the program would further the effort to promote the “buy local” initiative, Kriedeman said.

“It gives consumers an opportunity to try products they might not otherwise have an opportunity to try,” she said.

Board member Robert S. Marcus of Indiana and Agriculture Secretary George Greig will announce the program at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Farm Show in Harrisburg.
