Ring in the Holidays with Local Wines
The holidays are just better with wine. From festive sangrias, warm mulled wines, to the perfect pairing for your turkey, ham or roast chicken, the right wine makes a good holiday better (and a stressful holiday less so!). The wineries in Happy Valley are here to ring in the holidays with events, gift ideas and wine pairings for your big get-togethers!
You can't go wrong with the Traminette at Happy Valley Winery, a local grape that produces wine with notes of spice, banana, pineapple and has a crisp finish. It's a perfect pairing for roast chicken and turkey, making this a Thanksgiving top pick! Stop in at the winery on 576 S. Foxpointe Dr., or have it shipped directly from their website; 814-308-8756
