Don’t let New Hope Winery fool you.
There is not a vineyard there, the grapes are actually located in Erie, Pa. and shipped all the way to New Hope, Pa. Well known for its sweet Pennsylvania table wine, the charming wine and gift shop is housed in a rustic 18th century barn, located right between New Hope and Peddler’s Village since 1993.
The New Hope Winery showcases a large selection of fine Pa wines, accessories and gourmet foods from light, fruity whites and versatile blush wines to sophisticated reds and of course seasonal fruit wines. The tagline there is, “We’re not just a winery!” and that is true because in fact they are not a winery at all but an event venue.
And with that in mind, Balboa Catering with a home base restaurant in Kensington/Fishtown, brought their husband and wife talents to the suburbs on a gorgeous fall day.
“Imagine walking into a room not knowing anyone and after breaking bread and enjoying a few courses of delicious food, leaving that night with new friends. That is what our supper club experience is like! We believe in the concept of community. We are committed to supporting our local area by creating relationships with our neighboring growers, mongers, and purveyors,” said their website. “Our Supper Club affords our patrons the opportunity to experience not only the highest-quality ingredients sourced from local farms and translated into creative, artful dishes that stimulate all your senses, but also in becoming a part of a community and practice in which you believe.”
But enough about what it is, let’s show you what it all looks and tastes like!
There are a variety of event venues to accommodate any size event up to 250 people for social or corporate events. We have. The New Hope Winery is also Bucks County’s premier live music destination. You can enjoy artists as you’ve never seen them before in an intimate, cabaret-style seating concert venue.
Individual and group wine tastings are available at the wine bar where friendly and knowledgeable New Hope staff can guide you through the choices and offer advice on wine and food pairings.
Spend time browsing the wine and gift shop, complete with unique gifts, gourmet food items and wine accessories. Enjoy unique antiques scattered throughout the store as well.
