Lift a glass to Pennsylvania Wine Month

Wine lovers unite.

If you needed an excuse to imbibe, now you have one.

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is partnering with the state Department of Agriculture and the Pennsylvania Winery Association to promote October as Pennsylvania Wine Month. And they are asking residents to help celebrate it.

Don’t know much at Pennsylvania wines? All of the state’s Premium Collection state stores will feature Pennsylvania wines at in-store wine tastings from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday.

State officials said Pennsylvania’s growing selection of wines now contribute more than $1.4 billion to the state’s economy.

At another event, the Pennsylvania Winery Association, the PLCB, PA Preferred and the Pennsylvania Cheese Guild will host a wine and cheese tasting from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18 at the new Taste & Learn Center at the Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection store at Cranberry Mall, 20111 Route 19, Cranberry.

Although the event is free, attendance is limited and advance registration is required.

Registrations can be made in person at the store or by phoning local wine specialist Jerry Metallo in Cranberry at 724-776-0300.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
