PA Wine Fest In Oaks-September 12 & 13!

PA WineFest in Oaks on September 12 and 13 had a great turnout, plus wine tastings and more! Inside Hall D at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center 100 Station Ave, Oaks, with plenty of free parking.

Many wineries offered unique flavored (habenero wine?) wines and interesting vendors, like BeSpoke Bacon and Health & Tea loose leaf teas from West Chester.

Other vendors included scented candles, jewelry, makeup, toys, the ever-present Mary Kay vendor, and vendors selling windows and timeshares. There was also a vendor, Drinkable Arts where people could design and paint a wineglass, which was a fun and unique way to pass an hour.

Once I got through the throngs of bachelorette parties and bridesmaids, I was able to sample some unique flavors.

Sadly, there wasn't a cupcake vendor to be seen, although keystone farms cheese vendor had cheese curds, which I adore. 

Hershey's winery had a delicious strawberry wine that was like biting into a fresh berry, perfect as a base for a sangria.  

Dry Rieslings, fresh pino grigios and tasty Merlots rounded out the tastings. 

Plus, all wineries offer bottle check so wine can be bought and held at the door until the customer is ready to leave, without having to carry it around all day. 

Today's Sunday session is still available: noon to 4pm, just $30 each!

DD tickets available. 

This is a 21+ only event.
