Jet Wine Bar raises its glass to PA wines with Happy Hour series – Metro Philadelphia

Known as the city’s “world winery,” Jet Wine Bar raises its glass to Pennsylvania Wine Month with a weeks-long celebration through a series of Meet the Maker Happy Hours.

Taking place every Thursday this month from 5-8 p.m., wine lovers can indulge in flights and bites as well as sip signature flights of wine from the Jet Wine Bar after each event (or until until the wines are exhausted). And while in the nearby Jet Wine Garden (adorned with foliage and outdoor art), you’ll also have access to a variety of wines from across the state.

The Highlighted makers will include those at hyper-local wineries like Mural City Cellars in Kensington at Mazza Vineyards in Erie, Pa., at 1723 Vineyards in Landenberg, Pa., a statement said. All events are first come, first served and pay-as-you-go.

“We are thrilled to celebrate Pennsylvania Wine Month and showcase some of our favorite local wineries,” Nick Baitzel, COO of Sojourn Philly, said in a statement. “If there’s one thing we know, it’s good wine. Pennsylvania Wine Month provides a fun opportunity to showcase all of the winemakers in our home state, which contrasts somewhat with our typical ongoing rotation of overall wines.”

Kicking off the month on October 6, Jet Wine Bar will showcase a few different options for wine from five great local wineries: Karamoor Estates, Stony Run, Mazza Vineyards, 1723 Vineyards and Mural City Cellars. Flights of five wines, including one from each winery, will be available for $29 this Thursday.

Then later in the month, on October 20, family-owned Erie-native Mazza Vineyards will serve its ever-expanding collection (which has been around since 1972), including Pinot Grigio ($10), L’Anima Rosé ($12), Traminette ($10) or a flight of three options ($15).

Then, for the final Happy Hour, the Jet Wine Bar will host 23 Vineyards, owned by fifth-generation Midwestern farmers with a passion for great wine, who will offer a few varieties of their vino, including Chardonel ($15), Cabernet Franc Rosé ( $15), Cabernet Franc ($15) or a flight of all three options ($20).
