Top Wineries or Breweries

wineriesIf you are looking for a great way to spend time with family, friends, or clients, you should consider taking a tour of one or more of the top wineries or breweries in and around the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. The recommended venues offer guided and personal tours, as well as wine and beer tasting.


Keep in mind that the drinking history associated with Pittsburgh dates back to 1794—a time when western farmers rebelled against a whiskey excise tax. This caused what people refer to as the Whiskey Rebellion. Eventually, this Pennsylvania city became home to the “shot and a beer” era, otherwise known as the Boilermaker.


Best-Rated Wineries and Breweries


George Rapp, who established a religious sect in Germany, started the first vineyards just north of Pittsburgh. Thanks to his endeavor, more than 1.1 million gallons of wine are produced each year in the state.


As for beer, this became a phenomenon in 1765, when the British Army founded a brewery at Fort Pitt. This became the first brewery founded west of the Alleghenies. Then, in 1803, Point Brewery was founded as the first commercial venue in the city. Since that time, other breweries have cropped up, including the Pittsburgh Brewing Company, which is known for the Iron City brand.


Some of the best wineries and breweries in Pittsburgh include:


  1. Copper Kettle Brewing Company
  2. Maggie’s Farm Distilling
  3. Pittsburgh Winery
  4. R Wine Cellar
  5. Stay Tuned Distillery
  6. Wigie Whiskey


Top Choices


Below are a few additional wineries and breweries to consider.


  1. Roundabout Brewery—Although a smaller operation, this venue offers tasting of New Zealand and American hops that complement servings of New Zealand-style savory pies made of lamb stew in a flaky pastry.


  1. Voodoo Brewery—Located in the old Homestead Municipal Building, this Meadville venue is quite impressive with its barrel-aged beers.


  1. Mazza Vineyards—Bob Mazza, along with his brother, Frank, built this vineyard in 1973. Today, the Mediterranean-style architecture enhances the overall experience connected with the list of 20 varieties of red and white wines, which come from grapes grown by 40 of the top growers in the state.


  1. Stone Villa Wine Cellars—Built in 2000 by Debbie and Randy Paul, this winery has a perfect location 30 minutes from the popular Seven Springs Mountain Resort. At the winery, you and your guess can sample several of the more than 20 red and white wines produced.


Ideal Ground Transportation


To make your day of visiting different wineries and breweries in and around the Pittsburgh area more enjoyable and relaxing, you need a chauffeured limousine. In addition to the convenience, considering that you will have the chance to taste beers and wines, a limousine is the safest mode of ground transportation.
