Venue: Wellsboro, PA

Cost: $90 pp which includes a souvenir wine goblet with event logo, 5 tastings each with at least 12 participating wineries, breweries or cideries, dinner at your choice of one of our local restaurants, homemade ice cream from our local Creamery, and a $5 coupon to spend in town at a local establishment.
  • This event will have two times to select from, as follows:                                                                
  • 3:15-5:45 Tasting, with Dinner at 6:30 pm                                                                               
  • 6:15-8:45 Tasting, with an early Dinner at 4:30 pm
  • This event is planned around all CDC Guidelines by taking the following actions:
  • Customers will be assigned to a restaurant for your tasting location (all locations are within 3 blocks of each other in downtown Wellsboro, PA).
  • Upon entering the specific restaurant for your tasting event, you will be required to wear your mask, but you may take that off as soon as you are seated at your “Tasting Table.”  At your table, you will receive your Signature “Sit and Sip 2020” Wine Goblet.  
  • Once seated at your table, you will meet a member from our Benedict’s “team”, one of our hostesses or drivers.  They will be your “Runner”, as described below.
  • Participating wineries are all giving you an order form and 5 samples.  Once the first winery has completed all 5 tastings, you will complete the order form if you wish to make a purchase and the financial transaction will be completed at the table.  Your “Runner” will then take the wine orders to the Warehouse (Deane Center),where the orders will be filled and boxed up by location / table number / customer name.   
  • Once the first tasting is done, the second winery will move on to your table.  The only people moving at this event are the winery staff member giving the tastings and the “Runner”, unless, of course, you need to make a restroom break.  
  • All wineries will have the same allotted time to do the tastings.
  • You will taste samples from all wineries and also 5 moonshines.  There will be 3 breweries, as well, that will be stationed in a different location.  
  • Dinner will be at one of the designated times, 4:30 for the later tasting and 6:30 for the earlier tasting.  We will ask that you choose a 1st and 2nd choice for your dining options.  The wine tastings will occur in a different restaurant from your dinner, so that you will have an opportunity to walk around.
  • When you receive your reservation, you will receive a $5 Discount Coupon to be used at a variety of locations in downtown Wellsboro.  This will only be redeemable for July 21.  You may decide to come to town early and take advantage of sidewalk sales or have lunch prior to your tasting.  Dining open for lunches will be Timeless, Tony’s, the Red Skillet, The Dumpling House, Café 1905, and Native Bagel.  Your $5 certificate can also be used towards lunch or for an alcoholic beverage at dinner.
  • We will have a CHAIR MASSAGE available on Main Street for those who wish to get a quick, but oh-so-relaxing 10-minute massage.  The cost will be $10 and your $5 certificate can be used towards that as well. 
  • Upon conclusion of the event/dinner, you will be asked to pull up in front of the Deane Center and your wine purchases will be put in your car for you.
