Wine Tip of the Week - Manatawny Creek Cabernet Franc Port
We don't usually like port, but this one has become a favorite. It is lighter than many port and although it is sweet and high in alcohol (for a wine), it is not too sweet and the 18 to 20% alcohol content is easy to swallow.
This port is made from Cabernet Franc, one of the traditional Bordeaux varietals and one of Manatawny's consistently excellent grapes. While great for sipping alone, this wine is at its best paired with dark chocolate. Yummy!
The Manatawny Creek Winery is owned and operated by the Levengood family and is located just outside of Douglassville.
This is one of the several local Pa. wineries we highly recommend, not just for their wines, but for a wonderful wine tasting experience in their tasting room. They are open seven days a week and do not charge a tasting fee.
The staff is friendly, helpful, and they have a wide selection of wine, from bold dry reds to lighter, sweeter whites, to even a sparkling raspberry.
