The spooktacular “Hallo” Wine & Spirits Fest “aPalooza” comes to Bloomsburg, PA, on Saturday, October 28, 2017! It’s your chance to be spirited away at a tasting session hosted by nine different wineries and three distilleries. You can stay right here in Bloomsburg at The Inn, Farmhouse, and Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill, and tour tasting rooms from Clearfield and Ashfield to the west, Chambersburg and Bethel to the south, and Allentown to the east! You can do more than experience the spirits – you’ll find a variety of vendors and food trucks as well.
The variety of dry, semi-dry, sweet wines include those made from French hybrid and native American grapes, fruits of all kinds, and creative blends of different grapes and of grapes with different fruits and with honey. Wineries will offer classic white wines such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Traminette, and Muscato, plus native Niagara and Catawba. Among the different wineries, guests may choose to sample classic reds such as Cabernet Franc, Chambourcin, Pinot Noir and Merlot, as well as our native Concord. Fruit wines range from pear to plum and raspberry to rhubarb. The creative blends are endless – Riesling and Niagara, blackberry with merlot, cranberry with concord, blueberry with Gewurtztraminer, and mango with Catawba are just a few.
There will no lack of spirits to complement the “Hallo-wines” – wheat, potato, and fruit flavored vodkas, plus American, Wheat, Corn, and Rye Whiskies (some barrel-aged), not to mention Salted Caramel Whiskey! Rums, Bourbon, gin, and fruit moonshines complete the spirit list. Autumn is apple season, so the wineries and distilleries will be celebrating with fall’s arrival with spiced apple wine, plus dry and hard apple cider and apple pie moonshine.
