One of the great things about living in (and visiting) the Laurel Highlands is the variety of Pennsylvania wine. I have sampled from all of the local wineries but recently I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon at the Stone Villa Winery in Acme. It’s located right off of Clay Pike Road, which is only 10 minutes from the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Donegal.
Walking into the store I was impressed with the set up of gift baskets and displays of the different varieties of wine they offer. The gentleman working that afternoon greeted us warmly as we stood at the small bar where you can sample up to 6 wines. I prefer sweet wine and fell in love with the grapey Sunset and the light refreshing taste of Pink Catawba. It was settled and I of course bought a bottle of each!
It was a gorgeous day so we took advantage of the outside seating. The picnic table we chose was facing the lake, talk about a view! Another nice feature to this winery is that they provide free entertainment during the warm months; an events calendar is on their website. Needless to say I’ll definitely be making quite a few trips to Stone Villa in the future.
